Rooftop Dining is Back at Eataly

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

After a long New York winter, the city can finally rejoice in warmer weather, longer days, and of course, the spring refresh of SERRA. SERRA by Birreria is the rooftop restaurant at Eataly in Flatiron, and it has bloomed into its iconic rooftop oasis featuring rustic dishes, vibrant handcrafted cocktails, an immersive floral look, and more. Meaning “greenhouse” in Italian, SERRA always changes with the seasons, offering a unique dining experience reflective of the Italian countryside

Every March, the culinary team at SERRA patiently waits for the first sunny day when they can stroll over to the Union Square Greenmarket, chat with the producers, and find the first signs of artichoke and spring pea. This season at SERRA, feast on Scarola alla Griglia, grilled seasonal Norwich Meadow Farms chicories topped with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, shaved Parmigiano Reggiano DOP 18-month aged and Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico. Try traditional Bombette, Fingerlake Farm Pork Shoulder stuffed with Caciocavallo and Mortadella Rovagnati, then skewered and served from a torched wooden log. And celebrate spring with the Carciofo, a seasonal poached, fresh artichoke lightly seared and topped with housemade gremolata, a spread of pistachios, herbs, lemon zest and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.



This season the beverage experts at SERRA have taken inspiration from limoncello and the Italian tradition of infusing spirits with local flavors to make their own set of springtime veggie-cellos. You can sip the Carota using fresh carrots, the Piselli made by infusing bright spring peas, and the Rabarbaro showcasing the sweet and bitter notes of peak season rhubarb, on their own or in a cocktail.

Located at Eataly, 200 Fifth Avenue, NYC.  Get the details and book your table.
