The Market is Your Menu at Osteria del Mercato

The Market is Your Menu at Osteria del Mercato

Chicago, meet Osteria del Mercato, the all-new market-to-table restaurant at Eataly Chicago. Featuring a menu inspired by the marketplace using products from artisanal Italian and U.S. producers, the market is your menu at our first-ever experiential restaurant.

Opening on Friday, November 1, Osteria del Mercato will embody Eataly’s core philosophy with a menu that draws daily inspiration from the marketplace. A first for Eataly, diners will have the opportunity to select high-quality products to enjoy at their table from the most beloved parts of Eataly’s market: La Macelleria (butcher), La Pescheria (fishmonger), and our wine enoteca of over 1,200 labels of regional Italian wine.

The menu, designed by Executive Chef Will Serafini, was made to represent Eataly’s fresh market counters – Salumi & Formaggi, Macelleria, Pescheria, and Fresh Pasta – and highlights Eataly Chicago’s seasonal Italian recommendations comprised of products from Italian and local Chicago producers.

HOW IT WORKS

Osteria del Mercato is for both the traditional and the curious diner. If you're in the mood for a classic osteria experience, you can simply select from our menu of seasonal Italian plates comprised of products from Italian and local Chicago producers, wine by the glass and bottle, cocktails, and housemade beer.

Or, are you feeling adventurous? We encourage you to visit our fresh counters and handpick cuts of high-quality meat and seafood from producers like Catalpa Grove, Creekstone Farms, Red’s Best, and more. Then, head to our enoteca, the largest collection of regional Italian wine in North America, and handpick bottles to pour at your table. Once you select your cuts and your wine pairings, return to your table and our chefs will prepare your choices in a simple Italian style with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. Buon appetito!

BYOB WITH A TWIST

No Italian meal is complete without wine, so Osteria del Mercato will invite diners to browse Eataly’s enoteca, the largest selection of Italian wine in North America, where guests may hand-select any of the 1,200 labels of Italian wines representing the biodiversity of Italy’s 20 unique regions. Alternatively, they can choose to order from Osteria del Mercato’s curated list of over 100 Italian wines by the glass and bottle. Cin cin!
