The newest Eataly rumor floating around town is that the mega Italian mart is headed to Century City. A source shares intel that the Westfield Century City Mall will build an entirely new branch to accommodate Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's massive artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace and collection of eateries.
Just recently Brigham Yen relayed intel that Eataly was eyeing Downtown, but word on the street is that site was never considered by the Eataly camp. Rather, another separate Italian market concept is thinking of taking that space.
Here's a list of past locales supposedly considered by team Eataly:
1) The Beverly Center
2) San Vicente/Melrose
3) Beverly Hills/West Hollywood area

Update: Joe Bastianich says that he has yet to find a location for Eataly in LA, but "NEXT EATALY AFTER CHICAGO WILL BE LA."
