Eataly reveals details for first Toronto location

It's official. Eataly is opening its very first Toronto location some time in 2019. The Italian food palace will occupy a 50,000 square foot space in the Manulife Centre - a Yorkville-area building that's slated to undergo a massive renovation before Eataly moves in.

The incoming store will feature sit-down restaurants, casual eateries and a multifaceted marketplace. And for its Canadian expansion (yes, the Toronto outpost will be its first Canadian location), Eataly's partnering with the Selfridges Group and Terroni Restaurants.

"Eataly Toronto will be spectacular. Firstly, the city of Toronto values high quality food. And we do too. Secondly this will be our first Canadian location, and with every first in a new market comes something full of excitement and adrenaline," says Eataly Founder Oscar Farinetti in a news release.

Eataly first opened in Turin, Italy back in 2007. It now has 30 stores in places such as the United States, Japan, Dubai and Brazil.
