Who doesn’t like Italian foods? I haven’t met many people who don’t like pasta, pizza, Panini, or cheese. Maybe some people may dislike them because of all the carbs that gives you a hard time for being on a diet. I do care about well-balanced dieting, but am not fanatic about it at all. That means I basically eat what I crave for each and every day.
As Italian is one of my favorites, “Eataly” on 5th Avenue and 23rd/24th Street is a fun place to hang around. You can shop for anything from yummy cheese to cute housewares. You can also eat and drink wine at the restaurant there, and even if you could not finish a glass of wine during meals, they will allow you to take it with you for your Eataly shopping tour.
