About Eataly

IMG_3917

The idea behind Eataly is very simple: to gather a variety of high-quality Italian foods under one roof where people can eat, shop and learn. As an original “marketplace”, Eataly invites customers to be active participants in an innovative tasting experience, as they move between sections savoring the high quality traditional Italian foods, beverages, produce and artisanal products on offer, or try new dishes and products from Eataly’s regularly changing regional highlights.

Since its inception in 2002, when the first store opened in Turin after five years of research and planning, Eataly has been inspired by sustainability, responsibility and sharing. Its commitment to bringing the best quality produce from all corners of Italy, results in a network of over 2,000 small suppliers. Promising choice, accessibility and knowledge, Eataly affords any lover of Italian food a place in which to enjoy, savour and discover.

Eataly is operated by the The Azadea Group, a premier fashion and lifestyle retail company that owns and operates more than 55 leading international franchise concepts in fashion and accessories, food and beverage, home furnishings, sporting goods and multimedia across the Middle East and Africa spread across 13 countries overseeing more than 600 stores.

Carnem

Steaks_27-1920

“A MODERN AMERICAN RESTAURANT AND COCKTAIL BAR SERVING THE FINEST U.S.D.A. PRIME CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF IN A NEIGHBORHOOD SETTING.”

In Latin, ‘Carnem’ means meat, something that David DiSalvo knows a lot about. Chef DiSalvo is a French Culinary Institute graduate who earned his cooking chops while working for Kurt Gutebrunner and Aldo Sohm at Blaue Gans in TriBeCa; and pastry under Pierre Reboul made for the Michelin-starred Wallse in the West Village. DiSalvo solidified his steak skills as Chef de Cuisine of West Steak and Seafood in San Diego where he earned a #1 overall Zagat rating for Seafood and Steak.

Chef DiSalvo’s menu at Carnem consists of U.S.D.A. Prime Certified Angus Beef sourced from Master Purveyors in the Bronx, who hand-pick and dry-age the meat for 21 days. Among the signature cuts are a 7 oz. and 16 oz. New York Strip; a 32 oz. Bone-in Cowboy Ribeye—a hearty feast for 2 or 3 people; and a U.S.D.A. Prime Black Angus Petite Tender Medallion Steak.

“The philosophy behind the menu at Carnem Prime Steakhouse is to deliver chophouse cuts that are simply prepared and minimally-manipulated to show off the high quality product that we work closely with our purveyors to source. While we stick to the traditional cooking methods for the steak, we get playful and expressive with the appetizers and entrees, giving the menu our own creative stamp.”
