Birreria at Eataly

Birreria at Eataly

I have a little secret to share: The beer garden on the top of Eataly is open in the winter and has a roof.
Most people know the raucous crowded Birreria from summer when the roof is retracted bringing in the fresh air. It’s wonderful then, overlooking Madison Square Park, but I like it even better in the quiet of winter.

Birreria, “brewery” in Italian is run by Eataly’s Batali/Bastianich team, yet is not Italian. I was quite impressed when stopped by recently for lunch. We had the tender chicken thigh ($17) marinated with lemon, seasoned with black pepper and served over a salsify puree and some spinach (although the menu called for Swiss chard). Delicious.

We also shared the tasty chunk of apricot beer-braised pork shoulder ($22) with sliced celery and local apples and served with mustard vinaigrette.

What a nice place to spend a cold winter afternoon for lunch. I recommend.
