SUMMER HAPPENINGS AT IL PATIO DI EATALY WITH APEROL
Staying true to the identity of a piazza, we’re celebrating the coming together of the community through collaborations with Toronto-based retailers, bartenders, gelato-makers, and Italian-inspired activations to make the most of the summer sun. Starting June 20 through September, join us for weekly activities featuring local artisans, pop-ups, and more at Il Patio di Eataly with Aperol. Mark your calendar!
IL TAGLIERE DELL’AMICIZIA
Meaning “The Board of Friendship,” this special cheeseboard between Eataly and Cheese Boutique is a celebration of community, high-quality food, and of course the perfect aperitivo. Perfect for sharing with your amici, this board was co-created with ingredients from both marketplaces and inspired by Italian summers, and is available exclusively on our patio. What will you find on Il Tagliere dell’Amicizia? Cheese Boutique’s Aperol Spritz-washed Friulano Cheese, Eataly’s housemade bread, Cheese Boutique’s Orange Marmellata, Eataly’s housemade Aperol Honey, an assortment of Italian Olives marinated in citrus and laurel, finished with Italian torrone. Try it with an Aperol Spritz this season!
An Italian staple, we can’t talk about a summer experience without talking about vino! We’re bringing back Wine Wednesdays, with monthly features of wines you won’t find on our regular menu.
For the month of July, our beverage experts are featuring some of their favourite Rosati from across Italy’s various regions.
BOTTLE SHOP THURSDAYS
A weekly celebration of all things birra, featuring brews from our in-house brewery, Birroteca by Indie Alehouse, and a rotating selection of Ontario craft brewers like Sawdust and Dominion City.
Each month, we’ll feature a style of pizza from a different region of Italy available on Thursdays. For the month of August, our chefs are taking you to Lazio for Pinsa alla Romana. This oval-shaped Roman-style flatbread pizza is made with 3 different flours for a high-hydration dough that is light and airy on the inside and crisp on the outside.
SUNDAY SUMMER SIPS
All summer long, we’re welcoming local bartenders from some of Toronto’s top bars and restaurants to serve up special cocktails on our Bay St. patio space. Every Sunday from August 1 through 15, Il Patio di Eataly with Aperol guests will be able to enjoy cocktails from a very special group: Eataly’s own expert mixologists!
$1 from every signature cocktail sold during Sunday Summer Sips will be donated to FoodShare.
SUMMER SCOOP SERIES
Inspired by the innovativeness and high-quality gelato offered around Toronto, and knowing the local love for this frozen treat during the summer season (and all year long!), Eataly launched the Summer Scoop Series. From June through September, we’re partnering with a different Toronto gelato maker for a one-of-a-kind flavour using both their signature ingredients and flavours, as well as a selection of products found in Eataly’s marketplace.
Our August partner is CB Bottega, Cheese Boutique’s Cafe & Gelateria. This month’s feature flavour is Lemon Mint Cheesecake, featuring freshly squeezed lemon juice, Cheese Boutique’s housemade cream cheese, mint grown on-site at Cheese Boutique with seeds from Owner, Afrim Pristine’s own garden, and local whole milk from Sheldon Creek Dairy right from Eataly’s marketplace. Try their feature flavour at our Bloor St. gelato cart and counter long!
