Eataly’s Flatiron Birreria rooftop is a go-to in NYC during any season because of its incredible decor, and its brand new greenhouse look may be its prettiest yet.
Serra by Birreria‘s spring seasonal makeover is complete, officially back open as of Thursday, April 15. The space will transport you to the Italian countryside with a bright, fun ambiance inspired by “a greenhouse with flower buds, greenery, and plants, inspired by nature’s own flowering transformation.”
According to their announcement, the restaurant will encourages guests to “eat with the seasons” as Italians do, with menus changing each month based on what is in season, and purchased from NYC’s Greenmarket each day. Delectable menu items include: Spiedini, or “skewers,” from local produce like mushrooms from Meadows and More to Wagyu Beef from Autumn’s Harvest Farm;; and a selection of seasonal pasta dishes will highlight fresh ingredients like Wild Nettle Cavatelli con Agnello e Piselli, featuring housemade wild nettle pasta with a lamb and spring pea sauce.
This idea will be mimicked in the decor all year too, as Milky Way Studios “will give guests the chance to experience the changing of the seasons firsthand.”
As for drinks, they will also be embracing a plant life and floral theme — from a cocktail list that infuses seasonal botanicals to a tasting of different Italian bitters to IPAs that showcase a the hop flower flavor.
And, spending time there supports a good cause too. Serra by Birreria will donate a portion of proceeds to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Children’s Garden, where kids get to learn how to plant their own crops and flowers.
Overall, sounds like the perfect place for a gorgeous spring day!
