It’s not open yet, but behind its drywalled Prudential Center entrance, Eataly Boston is already filled with food.

Chefs Mario Batali, Barbara Lynch, and other partners provided a sneak peek at the dizzying array of culinary delights—from Neapolitan-style pizza, to prime rib panino, to Island Creek oysters, to warm chocolate-hazelnut spread flowing from a spigot—the complex will offer when it officially opens on Tuesday, November 29. The seafood-themed location is the restaurant and grocery center’s fourth U.S. outpost.

Take a look inside, and start mapping out your first trip around the 45,000 square-foot Italian gastronomic temple now.
