Foodies, rejoice!

At long last, Chef Mario Batali is reportedly planning to open an Eataly location right here Los Angeles.

For those of you who don’t know, Eataly is a multi-level Italian market superstore stocked to the brim with meat, wine, cheese, pasta, and other authentic specialty items. Currently, there are Eataly locations in New York City and Chicago.

Eataly will open up shop in spring of 2017 at the Westfield Century City, according to Racked LA.

It’s all part of a $700 million renovation, which includes “422,00 square feet of new retail space, 220 shops and restaurants (70 will be new), eight acres of outdoor space (including a new central plaza), 20 new residences across ten floors, 3,375 new jobs and 4,700 parking spaces to double the property’s current capacity.”

Carson and his fiancée Siri are huge fans of the Italian market. He raved about Eataly earlier this morning and explained why it’s taken so long to get one up and running in California:

“I was speaking to Mr. Batali about Eataly and why in God’s earth there isn’t one in Los Angeles and I remember him telling me how it’s so big, [he] can’t find a space large enough. It just can’t be big enough. It’s like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.”
