Eatzi's Market & Bakery is a chain of bakery, gourmet takeout markets, and restaurants, created by Philip J. Romano. It was based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, and proposes high end products. Four locations in Dallas remain open. The chain's Atlanta, Houston, and Rockville locations abruptly closed in November 2006, while the Chicago location closed in November 2007.

Eatzi's offered a wide range of specialty breads, cakes, and home meal replacements, as well as wine and cheese.

Classical music or tunes by crooners such as Frank Sinatra were permanently played in the markets, with an emphasis on the Four Seasons by Vivaldi. Eatzi's was very cautious about competition and didn't allow any photos inside the restaurants.

Eatzi's can be compared to the gourmet takeout section of Central Market or Whole Foods Market, which can be considered as Eatzi's larger competitors.

On November 16, 2006, Eatzi's announced the immediate closing of the two Atlanta locations, as well as those in Houston and Maryland.

In November 2007 the Chicago location abruptly closed.


Eatzi's Market & Bakery has four locations in Dallas, Oak Lawn Ave., Lovers Lane, Grapevine, and in west Plano, Texas.

They plan to open their 5th store in Fort Worth, TX Spring 2017.
