Eataly Toronto Turns 2!

Eataly Toronto store front

Eataly Toronto first opened its doors at the corner of Bay and Bloor on a snowy Wednesday in 2019, and on November 13, 2021 we’re turning 2! Celebrate with us in-store with complimentary tastings, special offers, and more, while supplies last.

CELEBRATE WITH A SWEET TREAT

locations vary

Prepared by our pastry team in-house every morning, our pasticcini (or little pastries) are the perfect bite, whether you want to start your day the Italian way or need an afternoon pick-me-up. On our birthday, be one of the first 100 guests to buy a treat (or that morning cup) from Il Gran Caffè and you’ll get a complimentary Tiramichoux on us!*

Exploring our marketplace on Saturday afternoon? From 1-3 p.m. at Il Gelato Artigianale, get a sample of one of our housemade gelati, then buy a pint to continue the celebration at home! After all at Eataly, we believe every season is gelato season.

Cheers of Prosecco

CHEERS AS WE TURN TWO

locations vary

A birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without a drink in hand, right? Right! Starting at 3 p.m., our first 200 guests at our Vino e Birra To-Go on Saturday, November 13 can get a taste of Prosecco paired with a sweet bite of Tiramichoux. Where else will you find a glass of the iconic Northern Italian sparkling wine? At La Pizza e La Pasta and La Piazza, we’ll be pouring our guests a complimentary glass throughout the day (while supplies last) to toast to us turning 2!

For our beer lovers, be one of the first 50 guests in Birroteca by Indie Alehouse, which features craft beers made by our local partner Indie Alehouse, and bring home a can of Bionda, an Italian pilsner and one of the first beers created for Eataly Toronto.

Is there anything better than a freshly shucked oyster? At La Pescheria, our local partners, Diana’s Seafood, responsibly source oysters from across the coasts of Canada and beyond.

GET A TASTE OF TARTUFI

at La Scuola di Eataly

Located in the Northwestern corner of Italy, bordering Switzerland and France, lies Eataly’s birthplace, Piemonte. Its fertile valleys and hills are hugged by the Alps and sustained by the Po River. Culturally and gastronomically rich, Piemonte is home to the first Eataly location, Slow Food, and truffles. On November 13 at 5:30 p.m., join us in La Scuola di Eataly for a special dinner experience featuring an ingredient that’s worth celebrating – the truffle – with a dinner and hands-on workshop dedicated to Piemonte.
