Not so much an event as a life-changing experience, Eataly is a gourmet Italian market that also contains several restaurants and eateries. With separate sections devoted to vegetables, cheese, pasta, wine, and more, you can easily get lost for hours. In the spring, you can hop right outside to Madison Square Eats, a semi-annual culinary pop-up market, and have a food-filled gluttonous day of New York’s best foods from across the city.
