Meet Mario Batali's New "Vegetable Butcher"

Mario Batali's veggie train just keeps on rolling. According to New York Magazine, Mario Batali's new NYC gourmet grocery store, Eataly, is a "50,000-square-foot, Slow Food–inspired Italian-food temple." And it will have a vegetable butcher?

So what does a vegetable butcher do? Mario tells New York Magazine:

Anything you want. If you’re not familiar with how to trim an artichoke, we’ll trim you an artichoke. If you don’t think you have time to peel your baby carrots, you can leave them with us and go shop in the other parts of the store, and we’ll peel them. We’ll do anything but cook them. On your way out, we’ll put the peels in a little separate bag—because they’re going to weigh them at the checkout counter—and then they go into a compost can up front.

Eataly opens on Aug 31st, and we can't wait to check it out!
