7 Tips for Your Summer Fling

7 Tips for Your Summer Fling

Summer is here! Tis the season to eat more gelato, drink rosé all day, and — best of all — have a fling. With sunny days and starry nights, the conditions are perfect. Trust us: we’re Italian. We have some experience in l’amore.

So, whether you’re single and looking or want to fan the flames with your partner, check out our seven tips for a  summer fling!

1. REGRET NOTHING. AND DRINK NEGRONI.

Kick off your fling during Negroni Week from June 5 to 11! Bittersweet and refreshing, this classic Italian cocktail has made many a summer match. (Plus, we’re donating proceeds to our favorite charitable cause. Showing that you care never hurts.)

Explore our Negroni Week offerings, including a free class, special cocktails, and even Negroni sorbetto.

2. KISS FRENCH. DRINK ITALIAN.

Rosé is the drink of summer! Yes, it’s a French word — but at heart, it’s an Italian wine. Stop by Vino e Grano during Rosé Hour to pick up a glass and wander the market in style, or get a bottle — why not? — at any of our restaurants.

View all restaurants!

3. LET'S GET PHYSI SEASONAL. 

Juicy sun-ripened tomatoes, sour mouth-watering lemons, crisp sparkling drinks — fall into summer taste-buds first at Le Stagioni, our new trattoria! Meaning "the seasons" in Italian, Le Stagioni showcases seasonal local flavors in regional Italian dishes.

Book your table!

4. BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY TOGETHER.

Rekindle the flames with your partner while also spending time with the whole family at our free kid-friendly classes at Foodiversità, our free food "university! Led by our Eatalian ambassadors, these fun hands-on classes are held every weekend. Claim your free seats by RSVPing to foodiversita@eataly.com.

5. MIX IT UP.

Mix and match select Italian wines, and enjoy 20% off cases! Our wine shop team up on 23rd Street has chosen the top 12 essential summer bottles, which you can combine however you like. Best of all, we’ll deliver to your door throughout New York State, free of charge.

Order your wine cases.

6. IMPROVE YOUR PICK-UP GAME.

Food pick-up, that is! Pack a ready-made romantic picnic (think: Italian antipasti, satisfying salads, savory panini, flavorful lasagna, and more) by visiting La Gastronomia, our take-away counter overflowing with dishes, salads, and more. Or, surprise your date wherever he/she is with freshly-made ravioli to go from our newest counter, I Ravioli. Did we just answer your summer dreams? You're welcome.

7. KEEP IT HOT. 

For everything else, our advice is simple: bring an Italian. From late-night dinner to morning-after breakfast coffee, our market is stocked with everything you need for your summer fling.
