Eataly in the Flatiron District is a one-stop Italian eatery/grocery/bakery/fishmonger/butcher etc etc – and then some. Nutella Bar within Italy is the place to go if you are craving a quick fix of hazelnut and chocolate in your coffee, crepe, ice cream, or all of the above. And then some. Its long lines can be frustrating, but the Nutella Bar does provide a perfect pit stop for those exploring the wonders of the area. We went for a blueberry crepe and a simple Hudson Valley Milk ice cream cup, both topped with generous amounts of Nutella. Awesomesauce!!!I just wish that it was located in a better position within the Eataly mansion. It’s too close to an entry/exit door, plus there isn’t enough seating. Maybe that’s just a cold-weather issue. As Spring approaches, hungry revelers can take their Nutella-rich pancakes and coffee out to Madison Square Park a minute away, and soak in the sunshine, coated in hazelnut-flavored dreams.
Have you been to the Nutella Bar? What’s your impression?
