An underground trip, a journey across the desert, the arrival in Las Vegas, a series of competitive events, a night of golf, a lazy river, some familiar coffee, and a night out that turned into morning, coffee. Strong, black, coffee.
Fortunately for me, Las Vegas has plenty of amazing cafes and restaurants including a personal favorite of mine, Eataly. Back in New York, I used to go to the Eataly by One World Trade Center at least once a month — for good reason too! The Italian food restaurant-bazaar hybrid (previously associated with Mario Batali) offers an incredible repertoire of delicious choices, including of course, coffee. Side note: Eataly also makes a fantastic (though somewhat overpriced) fruit tart — I surprised wife with one upon returning to Los Angeles.
Review: Just like the rest of Eataly, its cafe has an elegant yet welcoming factor that commands respect. At Eataly you will find Lavazza coffee, an Italian type coffee that has been quickly expanding across the U.S. in the last few years. Lavazza offers a decent cup of full-bodied aromatic coffee. Bitter yet flavorful, Lavazza was a great way to start the morning.
At $3.90 a large cup, it is still evident that you are paying the Las Vegas strip location premium — that, or they modeled their pricing after Italy. Price aside, this cup is good. It is delightful, but just short of memorable. Would I buy it again? I already have. The Ramdolfi Score: 5.9/10.
Tell me, have you ever been to Eataly? Have you ever been to Italy? How do you take your coffee?
