The sprawling 67,000 square foot culinary outpost featuring a range of Italian eateries and food markets. This world famous gastronomic haven has locations in New York, Boston and Chicago, but its greenest establishment has now officially opened in Los Angeles. In addition to being passionate about all things culinary, the Eataly Partners and Collaborators have a strong environmental conscience. Especially when its about water and it's preservation and conservation. Housed inside this marvel of modern cuisine sits another true first for the city of Los Angeles, the very first Commercial NSF-350 Certified Graywater System. This revolutionary Water Recycling System sits on the first floor adjacent to the Gelato and Cannoli bar, proudly displayed inside a pristine glass enclosure. Constructed over a period of several months Weil Aquatronics worked with Ecovie, the INTEWA partner for the US in a coordinated effort to recycle as much of the facilities water as possible. The end result is an one of kind Graywater System. A fully automated system that collects the facilities water, purifies it to the highest safety levels, and re-uses it for flushing all toilets and urinals, as well as for above ground spray irrigation.
