Eataly L.A. opened its doors in Westfield Century City on November 3.
At Eataly, our team is so excited to open our fifth U.S. location — and our first on the West Coast. We can already tell that the Eataly state of mind is especially compatible with California.
“I’m from Novello, a small, 800-person town in Piemonte, Italy,” said Nicola Farinetti, CEO of Eataly USA. “So, I can confidently say that I grew up at a slightly different pace; however, I understood one thing quickly: Angelenos like good, clean food, made by local producers with phenomenal stories behind them. And we do too. So, yes! We’ll get along just fine.”
Covering 67,000 square feet, Eataly L.A. features three sit-down restaurants, nine take-away counters, two cafés, and a cooking school — all intermingled with 10,000-plus products on the shelves. From restaurants to retail, our Los Angeles location is made unique among Eatalys, thanks to our connection to California by partnering with nearby restaurateurs, farmers, and wineries to share their local flavors.
Each Eataly location is dedicated to a theme: Eataly L.A. is opening dedicated to water and its preservation. Upon opening the store, you will spot our in-house greywater system, which is designed to recycle water. In addition, we are using top technology across the store to save water; from kitchen equipment to toilets and sinks, we save nearly six million gallons every year.
