If you haven’t heard by now, Eataly Boston opened in the Prudential Center on Tuesday, attracting crowds of people to the 45,000-square-foot Italian food emporium.
The space has four restaurants, 10 eateries, two cafes, three bars, five fresh production counters, 10,000 products, and a hands-on cooking school. And on its first day, Eataly sold a lot of Italian food. Here’s just how much:
250 pounds of mozzarella curd (4,000 ounces)
1,000 mozzarella balls at our fresh-production lab
500 Rossopomodoro pizzas at the restaurant La Pizza & La Pasta
700 cannoli at the Cannoli Cart, an exclusive offering at Eataly Boston
1,800 pieces of pizza alla pala
500 rustic loaves of bread (that’s 700 pounds) at the bakery
300 bags of house-made chips throughout the market
2,500 coffee drinks at the two cafes, Vergnano and Lavazza
In the wake of this massive undertaking, Eataly Boston will be closed on Monday to allow its staff to rest for the day. The store will reopen with regular hours on Tuesday at 7 a.m.
