After months of rumors, confirmations, a lawsuit, an eviction, and a Mario Batali tweet, Eataly buildout has commenced inside the former ESPN Zone space on Ohio Street. Signage has sprung up around the building proudly displaying wise slogans such as "life is a combination of magic and pasta."
Inside, construction is in its infancy as workers are just getting started, moving materials in their quest to transform the barren interior into said combination of magic and pasta. Regardless, the sheer progress appears to be a welcome sight to the curious passersby in River North. The target opening is mid-November.
