We thought Eataly was already the best amusement park ever. The Italian food emporium--with 26 branches in Italy, Japan, New York City, Chicago, Turkey and Dubai--is like a fever dream of insanely alluring Italian cheeses, cured meats, wines, imported pastas in all shapes and sizes, plus wine and cheese bars, pizzerias, bakeries, restaurants, and gelaterias.
