Eataly Vino reopens, Eataly Nutella bar to stay

e96a05a8-1ca4-4724-8db2-ea34dd4c0b7fEataly will have a grand (re)opening of Eataly Vino, which has expanded to two floors and 12,000 bottles of wine. You may recall the original Eataly wine shop was forced to shut down. On Thursday, June 11th from 5-7pm they will celebrate with Ferrari sparkling wine, a 2010 Barolo tasting, and platters of salumi and formaggi. They have moved it from its original spot a few door down to 200 5th Avenue at 23rd Street. Stop on by.

The Eataly Nutella bar was once only going to be a temporary popup at Eataly, but now will be a permanent part of the Eataly offering in the New York location. They feature Nutella based crepes and waffles as well as a selection of Nutella pastries and Caffe. Plus gelato topped with Nutella. Here is the full Nutella menu:

200 5th Avenue reaches 100% occupancy with Tiffany & Co expansion

According to the NY Post, Tiffany & Co took on another full floor at 200 5th Avenue (between 23rd and 24th Street) for their headquarters, bringing the Madison Square Park adjacent building to 100% occupancy.

The building was gutted a few years back for a much needed modernization, and even with failed bank Lehman Brothers as a partial owner (whose stake was sold) they were able to land Grey Group as the first marquis tenant, followed by Eataly, then Tiffany & Co, and Marimekko in the retail space.

Overall it has been an incredible success with absolute top-tier tenants that improve the neighborhood.

They reportedly had 7 million visitors in the last year according to the article, with 30% of them being tourists and the rest locals. Read the full article at
