Open for just a few weeks, the Eataly store in Toronto is an architectural contrast to many of the Italian slow food purveyor’s other outposts simply because it is in a very modern building (and there are now 39 other Eatalys around the world) in the heart of the city’s ‘designer’ neighbourhood.

Set over two floors, this one covers 50,000 sq ft and features three restaurants, seven counters and two bars. There is also a cooking school (a feature found in a number of Eataly ‘stores’, from Stockholm to Paris) and a microbrewery. Worth noting is the fact that as well as staples such as ‘Fresh Pasta’ and a fish counter, this branch also boasts locally adapted offers, meaning that the fish counter, for example, is ‘Diana’s Seafood’, which hails from the greater Toronto area.

Eataly is, apparently looking at a second location in or around the city, but it seems probable that it will want to learn from this store, before pressing ahead.
