Elevated Italian countryside charm in the heart of NYC.
Nestled on the 15th floor, above the Italian megastore Eataly, you find this rooftop bar and restaurant called SERRA by Birreria. 'Serra' is Italian for 'greenhouse', and the rooftop really lives up to its name with a lush and beautiful setting.
The terrace is a bit covered, so while the view is nice over the close by Flatiron building and the Empire State Building, it is not the best in the city. But instead there is a great and charming atmosphere to make up for it.
SERRA changes with the seasons, but always offers a rustic menu reflective of the Italian countryside. During 2021, the menu will change from spring to fall, featuring new specialties each month. So a visit more than once is highly recommended.
Among an array of colors you can settle down by one of the rustic tables and enjoy down to earth Italian dishes, made with top local produce and seasonal ingredients. Complementing the food is a fine array of seasonal botanical cocktails, Italian IPAs and a wine list that dives deep into a selection of natural and biodynamic wines.
Open for lunch, after-work drinks and dinner all week long, SERRA by Birreria is the best NYC rooftop bar for a full and tasty Italian meal. It is a popular venue, so for dining reservations are highly recommended.
