According to an article that ran yesterday in The Huffington Post, famed NYC eatery Eataly is planning to open LA and DC locations as early as 2012.
That's great news for DC foodies who have been enamored of the 40,000+ square foot market and restaurant in midtown Manhattan. According to the article, the new DC iteration will include both the market and restaurant concept, although a location has not yet been named.
The article also mentions that Brian Voltaggio (of Volt & Top Chef fame) will open a 10,000 square foot market with a similar concept, but more local in flavor, with American foods sourced within 200 miles of his Frederick base.
We can't wait!
