PLAN DATE: MON / NOV. 26
Indulge in all that is Italian on tonight’s date through the Flatiron District. Start with the most delicious thin crust pizza the city has to offer at Tappo Thin Crust. This neighborhood staple comes from the same team as New York area favorite pizza hotspots: Vezzo, Gruppo, Posto, Spunto, and Brado. Start the night on the earlier side to take advantage of their great happy hour (3:30pm – 6:30pm; Monday 3:30 to close) specials like a free large plain pizza with the purchase of a pitcher of beer or bottle of wine, and buy 1 get 1 free when it comes to draft beers and house wines. Don’t miss their house pie, the Giardino, with marinara sauce, cheese, broccoli, fresh tomatoes, sweet red onions, roasted garlic, and spinach. Once you’ve got the first taste of Italy of the night head down the street to Eataly’s new winter rooftop bar.
Eataly Flatiron’s seasonal restaurant on the roof, SERRA ALPINA by Birreria, is finally open for guests looking to escape the cold city streets and immerse themselves in a winter wonderland. This winter-themed pop up features a warm, Alp-like setting inspired by the Stella Alpina, a rare flower found in the Northern Italian Alps, and a ceiling full of glistening snowflakes. Menu highlights include over 35 types of Amaro in addition to Amaro-based specialty cocktails, beverages infused with mountain herbs, hearty dishes from Northern Italian regions designed to keep you warm, and an array of starters and sides made with fresh produce.
