5 features worth checking out at Pusateri's brand new Food Hall at the Eaton Centre

Nov 10 2016, 11:40 pm

Pusateri’s opened its long awaited Food Hall at Sak’s at the CF Eaton Centre today.

Like its predecessors in Yorkville and at Sherway Garden, Pusateri’s new 25,000 square foot downtown location prides itself on carrying an upmarket selection of groceries and restaurant-quality fare.

Here are some of the most unique and impressive features in store.

There’s a ‘vegetable butcher’

No, they’re not selling plant-based burgers and steaks a la YamChops. This complimentary service will dice and julienne produce on your behalf so that all you have to do is take it home. It’s all in the interest of saving time for people passing through.

The selection of prepared foods is insane

Pusateri’s is overflowing with meal-time shortcuts. Find trays of lasagna already assembled and ready to pop into the oven, pre-marinated meats, sauces, stocks, and more ready to be reheated.

For immediate consumption there’s a The Chopped Bar, a serviced salad bar and yogurt parfait counter, a Sushi Bar rolling up maki a la minute, a Rosticceria offering a rotating menu of carved meats, BENE, a Roman-style pizzeria serving up pizza by the slice, and a luncheonette manned by Sorelle and Co. specializing in gluten-free, soy-free, sesame-free, vegan, nut-free, and preservative-free foods.

Everything is condo-sized

Condo-dwellers don’t get to take advantage of value-sized stuff. Your Costco membership is useless to us… storage space is already so sparse.

When you’re already paying a premium for single serving everything why not just splurge at Pusateri’s? At least you won’t have to eat the samething every day for a week, nor will you have to watch surplus groceries wilt and rot as they go ignored in your fridge at home.

You’ll find all your favourite local brands in one place

You could spend a day hopping from Blackbird Baking Co. for baguettes or to Le Dolci for a B-Day cake. Or trying to source some one who sells David H. Chow chocolates… Or you could just hit this well-curated one-stop shop.

It’s licensed to serve alcohol

Let the formagerie build you a cheese board and then nibble away on it with a glass of wine in hand. This grocery store doesn’t sell bottles for take-home, but the Champagne Bar pours fine wines, beers and bubbly.
