Eataly Fish Auction


This year, take your Easter feast to a whole new level by giving it an Italian twist. Stop by Eataly NYC Downtown to pick up the essentials, including prime lamb cuts, fresh seasonal produce, and traditional Italian sweets.


Pre-order your cuts ahead of time and out butchers will have everything ready for you just in time for your Easter feast. This year, we're offering grass-fed lamb cuts from Cedar Springs, a family farm in Colorado, as well as Pat La Frieda spiral ham and Creekstone Farms brisket. Pre-orders are available through April 18.


Baked by artisans in Milano, colombe are must-have on your Easter table. These dove-shaped cakes are rich, fluffy, and topped with pearl sugar and almonds. Explore the variety of flavors in our market place and join us for complimentary tastings on April 19, from 12-4 p.m. during our storewide Colomba Day event.


Easter means you can leave chocolate in every room and call it “decoration.” Both beautiful and delicious, our artisanal chocolate eggs, bunnies, and more from New York and Italy are the perfect decor for kids and adults alike.
