Nutella Bar to Replace Eataly's Shuttered Wine Shop
MANHATTAN — Eataly is about to get even tastier.
The Flatiron marketplace is launching a Nutella Bar on Monday, offering crepes, tarts and breads slathered with the Italian hazelnut spread.
To celebrate its opening, the Nutella Bar will offer free Pane con Nutella — housemade bread covered in Nutella — to all customers from 5 to 9 p.m. on Monday.
In addition to Nutella-covered bread, menu items include a Nutella-filled croissant for $3.80, a muffin spread with Nutella for $4.80 and a crepe folded around Nutella for $5.80.
The Nutella Bar takes the place of Eataly Vino, a wine shop that was forced to close for six months starting in April after violating State Liquor Authority rules.
Eataly staff previously said Eataly Vino was expected to reopen in October. On Thursday, an Eataly spokeswoman said the Nutella Bar will remain open even after the wine store returns.
"We will definitely have more info and more surprises to come in October!" the spokeswoman said in an email.
Eataly, 200 Fifth Ave., is open daily from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
