As we had announced the Central Market from today it also has an office in Rome with entrance in Via Giolitti.
After the one in Florence, the Roman office opened in the spaces of the former post-railway work inside the Termini Station, just below the Mazzonian hood (work created in the 1930s by the architect Angiolo Mazzoni).
The large food hall, extending over an area of almost 2 thousand square meters - formerly a homeless destination, now a meeting place for "foodies" - is a project by Umberto Montano, a restaurant entrepreneur, who Florence, in 2014, revived the first floor of the covered market of San Lorenzo, over 3 million entries in 2016.
In the Central Market of Rome, open from 7 in the morning until midnight, you can buy, eat, drink, learn the rudiments of cooking and read thanks to 16 shops, a brewery and a restaurant led by the German-born chef Oliver Glowig, two Michelin stars.
Called to represent the Capitoline scene and to enhance the regional specialties, the bakers of Gabriele Bonci, the trapizzini of Stefano Callegari (triangles of focaccia filled with tripe, meatballs and other delights of local cuisine) stand out among the shopkeepers, but also "Artichokes" and batter, specialists in fried street food with supplì with honey and bacon.
It already seems to hear the first controversy: if the place is new to "inhabit it" are the usual suspects.
The Market impresses with the breadth of spaces, has a central area dedicated to the cafeteria (with the blends of Franco Mondi from MondiCaffè) and to beers with Moretti's proposals.
But what can you eat at the Central Market in Rome, and how much does it cost?
Oliver Glowig - The Table
It is the name of great appeal, the second German chef who conquered Rome, elevated by the Michelin Guide to two stars.
But the proposal in the Central Market restaurant is more in line with the mission of enhancing local specialties, it will therefore be particularly interesting to taste the proposals on the menu, the great products of Lazio craftsmanship, the promising mozzarella.
2. Gabriele Bonci - Bread and bakery products
One and three by now Gabriele Bonci is everywhere: from Pizzarium to the Bakery, passing through the many events, up to new stores like this one.
In the showcase the great classics, from pizza to bread through desserts.
3. Pizzeria Sud - Pizza
Four slowly leavened pizzas, for a minimum of 48 hours, proposed in the space of the Neapolitan pizza maker Romualdo Rizzuti, already present at the Central Market in Florence.
They are margherita (€ 8), marinara (€ 7), Spanish Naples and a pizza that varies according to the season.
4. Alessandro Conti and Gabriele La Rocca - Artichokes and Mushrooms
Fried mushrooms, raw mushrooms in carpaccio, Roman-style artichokes, Jewish-style artichokes and much more, all thanks to Alessandro Conti, whom the Romans of the center know well for being present in the Campo de 'Fiori market, and Gabriele La Rocca, from Oriolo Roman.
5. Stefano Callegari - Trapizzino
From Testaccio to the Central Market passing through Tokyo: thanks to his invention Stefano Callegari, father of trapizzino (and owner of three well-known pizzerias in Rome), has conquered a large slice of the world.
Now bring the trapizzino also to the Esquiline, the price? 4 euros each.
6. Egidio Michelis - Fresh Pasta
The Mondovì pasta factory, which defines itself as the "referent for Eataly's fresh pasta", is also linked to the competing food hall, offering fresh ravioli, rigatoni and fettucine (€ 8)
7. Luciano Savini - Truffle
Each market shop has its own specialties, which at Savini can only be truffles. Present in different types, formats and packages, it can also be consumed at the moment, as a touch of class in a sandwich for € 2.50.
8. Veg & Veg - Vegetarian and Vegan
Fruit salads, fruit, salads, gazpacho in bread crust and above all vegetarian and vegan burgers.
It may have been the inauguration, the presence of very inviting specialties (trapizzini, pizzas, meat) that could be tasted for free, but this was practically the only empty shop. Don't blame me.
9. Galluzzi family - Pesce
Since 1894 in Rome, passing through four generations, still in Via Venezia 26-28 (and also in Via Gregorio VII) the Antica Pescheria Galluzzi brings fish from Terracina, Porto Santo Stefano and Gallipoli to Termini Station.
Try the unmissable mixed frying for 8 euros in the fishmongers with kitchen
10. La Toraia - Hamburger
The Chianina hamburger arrives directly from the farms in Tuscany of Tenuta La Fratta. The hamburger costs 8 euros but the advice is to also try the Tuscan pork hot dog.
Remember that, it's a tip from Dissapore.
11. Arà - Sicilian specialties
Think of everything edible and sweet that reminds you of Sicily, enclosed in a showcase.
Cannoli filled at the moment, Modica chocolate, cassata, almond paste and marzipan sweets, in addition to the inevitable arancine.
12. Bottega Liberati - Meat and Salami
Another name well known and appreciated in Rome is that of the butcher Roberto Liberati, who makes his memorable meats more easily traceable on Roman pizza by setting up shop at the Central Market.
Must try the tartare and sausages.
13. Andrea Stainer - Chocolate
The unusual combinations of Andrea Stainer tablets and pralines land in Rome. Make way for chocolate with tiramisu, cappuccino or curry, the Indian spice.
And again, gluten-free tablets and preparations such as puddings, sorbets, ice creams, mousses and hot chocolate.
14. Batter - Fried
Here they are the specialists in fried street food, or the fried food store dear to gourmets in the Roman district of Montesacro, which now brings fried meat and vegetables to Termini, pizza and tempting supplì for sale for 2 euros each.
15. Beppe and his cheeses - Cheeses
Another Roman institution, which in a few years has changed the habits of Roman enthusiasts who frequent his shop assiduously.
Beppe Giovale has just brought every dairy marvel to Termini, and in addition to those also test them, farinata with stracchino and carasau bread in combination
16. Cremilla - Ice cream
The master ice cream maker Luca Veralli (who comes from an experience in La Romana, and here I see most of the readers of Dissapore turn up their noses), here proposes different ideas from those of the famous chain.
Different flavors of artisan ice cream whose only thickener is carob flour, one for all lemon, prepared with lemon juice, water and sugar. Stop.
17. Salvatore De Gennaro - Wine and Pantry
Next to Oliver Glowig's "trattoria" there is the space dedicated to wine and pantry, under the guidance of Salvatore De Gennaro, which brings experience and products from his shop to the Central Market, known and appreciated by many from Campania and as many tourists.
We are talking about La Tradizione di Vico Equense, so below with pasta, preserves, oil, jams, cheeses and a large choice of cured meats, in addition of course to wines.
18. The Brewery
One of the most spectacular spaces of the new Central Market in Rome is the one reserved for the spines of the Brewery, on the back of which there is also a café bar.
And then, would you ever have said, Termini station, the sad non-place where at most you could bite into a few eaten snacks or a discarded and crumbly sandwich, transformed into a flaming Food Hall?
What do you think?
