VariEATy is back! Last year, Variety the Children’s Charity of New York launched a brand new fundraising campaign – Varieaty: Local Eats to Benefit Local Youth. This year, we are bigger and better than ever! Join us from Saturday, April 29th-Saturday, May 6th as our favorite food trucks, stands, and vendors donate a percentage of their sales to Variety The Children’s Charity of New York. Follow us on Instagram and Twitter to see where our participating vendors are located each day, visit their trucks, order their VariEATy specials, and enjoy your meal even more knowing that a percentage is going to help tri-state area youth access therapeutic art therapies.

EATALY NYC Downtown and Variety the Children’s Charity of New York are proud to present an exclusive VariEATy class: Hands-On Pasta Making and Mozzarella Stretching. Join us for a fun, instructive, and delicious night as we learn about two Italian specialties while enjoying the beautiful EATALY space overlooking the World Trade Center. 100% of ticket sale proceeds benefit Variety The Children’s Charity of New York! Further details on the class below:
Part One: Hands-on Pasta Making
The perfect fresh pasta is the result of few carefully selected ingredients, a well-crafted dough and the art of creating the perfect shapes for the perfect sauces. Learn all of these techniques and more at a semi-hands-on Fresh Pasta class with our Pasta Expert!

Part Two: Mozzarella Stretching
Savor 45 minutes of pure cheesy bliss — guests will watch while our Cheese Expert demonstrates how to make creamy, chewy mozzarella from curds and boiling salted water. At the conclusion, enjoy a taste of our housemade mozzarella, freshly stretched drizzled in premier olive oil and paired with tasty tomatoes!
