CHICAGO, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Macerich (NYSE:MAC) announced today, Eataly, the largest artisanal Italian food and wine emporium in the world, will open its second U.S. location at The Shops at North Bridge with a 2013 targeted opening.

"Eataly will bring its energy, food and local flair that is ideally suited for The Shops at North Bridge and downtown Chicago," said Guy Mercurio, Vice President, Macerich's National Restaurant Group. "This location will be a signature attraction for food-focused Chicago residents, as well as the city's national and international visitors. Eataly exemplifies our commitment to bringing the best food experiences to Macerich properties across the country."

The Eataly concept is a collaboration among Joe Bastianich, Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich and Oscar Farinetti, who founded Eataly in Turin, Italy, in 2007.  Eataly at The Shops at North Bridge will soon become the ultimate culinary destination in Chicago.
