It is still unclear where Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's Italian mega market will land in LA, though until now sources have cited the vicinity near West Hollywood and Mid-City, namely The Beverly Center. But Brigham Yen is jumping on the rumormongering wagon, writing that "a source who wishes to remain anonymous" says that Eataly is in "serious discussions" to open at Macy's Plaza, or rather what will become The Bloc after a $160-million remodel by developer The Ratkovich Company. Supposedly, Eataly would occupy much of the space that now functions as the food court below Macy's.
