EATALY No other spot in NYC can rival this brainchild of  Chefs Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich and Joe Bastianich. Part Italian Marketplace, part Bistro, part cooking school, this megaplex of divine goodness celebrated its first anniversary this Summer by opening up a beer garden on its roof deck. It is a culinary masterpiece, where your bread comes piping hot and your pork is pulled before your very eyes. Pastas of all shapes , sizes, and flavors adorn the breakfronts, and sweet coffee aromas permeate the hard to resist bakery hall. The butcher and fish monger  are  top notch and if you need a recipe, the fully stocked book nook will serve all your needs. A MUST for anyone who wants to spice up their at home party, but loads of fun to stop by for a simple panini and a glass of vino. 200 5th Ave  at 23rd St  ( 646) 398 5100   www.eatalyny.com
