When Vegetables Star Italian Style

I work only doors away from Eataly, a slightly intimidating Italian food emporium that is a cross between an Old World food market and a three-ring circus. Whether you are seeking a sit-down lunch or hunting for an obscure ingredientEataly probably has what you’re looking for.

Not only can you find slivers of young pecorino cheese (yes, it’s under three months old), lobster mushrooms and dainty tiramisu snacklets that can fit in the palm of your hand, but you can also dine there — in a variety of styles. Eataly includes seven restaurants and one, Le Verdure, offers a menu solely comprising vegetarian and vegan offerings.

At Le Verdure you can dine at tables in the midst of Eataly’s open bustle, or you can sit at the counter. On recent visits, we chose the counter, if only to get a better  view of the friendly staff prepping the food, and to ooh and ahh over the array of choices.

We began with the bruschutta di giorno
