With its piped-in opera music and diverse culinary offerings, this gourmet food emporium-cum-cafe has remained a popular foodie pit-stop since it first opened back in 1996. Since then, eatZi's has spawned several more locations throughout the metroplex. Designed to recreate a European market, the 8000-square-foot space features a bakery, a sandwich station, a grill, a chef's case of prepared meals and shelves stocked with specialty finds. With endless options of house-baked breads, pastries, main courses, salads, sides and even sushi, not to mention chocolates, cheeses, snacks and wine, this place is definitely not for the indecisive. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner and also have a small covered patio for those who want to hang-out rather than take their meal on the run. The store is worth a visit, if only to taste all of the free samples doled out, but be prepared to encounter crowds no matter what time of day you come.
- Oak Lawn's Best Restaurants: "Every day from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. customers can purchase food from the Chef's Corner and receive a second item of equal or less value free. Also on Fridays, between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. eatZi's offers pizzas for $10. Add in a salad and a bottle of wine for only $20."
- Best for Oak Lawn's Best Restaurants Because: eatZi's is a foodie paradise for takeaway gourmet goodies.
