Popped in here with a bunch of RBians this last weekend while I was in town again. First the good - this place is beautiful. Really, truly, beautiful. Classy without being ostentatious or overwrought. Has a few beams running over the top providing a nice bit of shade to the rooftop patio. Large red ceiling fans get a workout on hot days (like the one we were there on). There was a small selection of their own beer - all of which were pretty standard and pretty boring. The food was great (as you might expect), but incredibly expensive. A large selection of cheeses and some tasty charcuterie with unlimited bread for eating it with. The chestnut honey they serve with the charcuterie is pretty damn tasty as well. Itís a great spot - but Iím not sure theyíre after the beer lover here with prices like these. There is a nice bottle list as well (mostly Italian stuff, unsurprisingly) although I canít see me paying these prices for it.

This is a grand place, sitting atop of an old 15 storey building, with a nice view of the east side skyline (or was it west), open year round (the glass roof is closed in the winter). Beers are pricey (10$ a pint of Birreria beers) but very good ( 2 Birreria brews available), nice selection of guest taps from Italy and the US (7$ for 12 on.). Food is simple but good and service was very friendly, and knowledgeable. A must in NYC.

Located on the 14th floor (rooftop) of Mario Bataliís Eataly NYC. I visited after hours, and had to enter through the Eataly exit on the South side of the building. The layout of the restaurant is bar down the entire right side, tables fill out the rest of the space. I visited on an evening that looked like it may rain, so the entire rooftop was closed up tight. I have no idea if they open the views up on a nicer day/night, but when I visited it hardly seemed like a rooftop. They had 3 of their own beers on cask, along with maybe 10 guest taps. The bartender was attentive, though was primarily trying to look cool for the young and pretty crowd that was jammed into the place on a Thursday. I did not have any, or see any food. As mentioned, pints of their own beers are $10, though for NYC I didnít find that too far out of order.

Fun place. Yes, its pricy. The food is awesome though. Beer is solid too. Good and succinct draught selection, bottles too. House beers consist of 3 cask beers. The two year rounders (Gina and Wanda) are both unique and tasty. I wasnít the biggest fan of the seasonal (Ruby), but it wasnít bad either.Covered roof in the winter with enough heaters to get it up to a somewhat uncomfortable temperature (low 80s even). Great looking place in general. Both brewers are extremely friendly, as is the wait staff. Beautiful copper JVNW brewing system (tiny though, 3.5bbl brewdeck). Food was spectacular and very filling. The salumi plate and fried mushrooms were amazing. That said it is very pricy, even for NYC. A fun stop, especially if someone else is footing the bill.

Unsure why anyone would bother waiting to get into this place. The space itself is great, but there really isnít anything good on tap worth waiting for and the food isnít worth the ransom they charge. Italian bottles are expensive enough -- just pick up what you need in the market.

Made a trip up to the top deck for a pint and to check out the scene of the new brewpub. They still were not producing beers from the brewpub, instead bringing in some of the house beers from Dogfish Head. Iím not interested in paying $10 for a pint of any Dogfish beer, so I moved on to a delightfully fresh pint of Victory Prima Pils. They have impeccable glassware, solid service, and a nice clean, fun atmosphere. The food, of course, looks good. Worth it, if youíre feeling particularly spendy.

Iím somewhat torn on this place. The location is very cool, up on the 14th floor roof of the building that houses Eataly. After a quick elevator trip you arrive at a gorgeous open feeling space that feels classy but not pretentious. Very well lit on a mid autumn afternoon. Bar service was quick and friendly. They have a lovely looking menu of small plates and such. The downside however is that I really canít find much of a reason to come back. While the menu is great (and the plates I saw coming out looked wonderful), theyíre quite expensive for whatís on them. There are a few interesting beers on tap, and up to three (they only have three) of their own on cask. But the cask pours are $10 for a chalice (they do halves if you ask), so again rather pricey. And the tap list of 8-12 (canít remember exactly) is not mind blowing, especially in NYC. Seems very much aimed to the young disposable income crowd, who made up the bulk of a somewhat filled room while there in the afternoon. Probably worth swinging in if youíre passing by, but if youíre only in town for a day, certainly not a destination bar.

Visited for lunch on January 30, 2012. Nicely located on the top floor of this building with a glass roop. Had the soup and tried the three own beers they had available. Good service. Was a bit hard to find, but once you got in the building and looked around you saw the sign and got directed towards teh elevators. Drawback thay you couldnít really get a sampler of beers.

Very nice, airy spacy on rooftop of building. Service was spotty and seemed to prefer "better off" clientele than beer geeks like me. Beer was excellent yet with limited choices. Food on higher end, not best I had. Rather pricy. Overall mixed bag....

Iíd been meaning to stop in here since it opened, and I finally did today. As is to be expected, since it is part of Eataly, the place is a mad house. They used a texting system to tell you when they were ready for you, which keeps the crowds downstairs, and makes the upstairs more manageable. This is really a place that I like more in theory then in practice. What I mean by that is that it is a beautiful roof-top beer bar, with fans to keep it nice and cool and a retractable roof to make it work in all weather. It sounds great in theory, and the place is really nice looking, but itís also quite a pain. The service was OK, the prices were terrible (but I knew they would be, so I wasnít thrown for a loop or anything), and the food is quite good. We stuck to just a meat plate and a cheese plate, and enjoyed the selections along with a few beers. The food was quite good, but overpriced, and the beers were good, interesting, and again overpriced. Considering how crowded it gets and the prices, The beer selection is decent, some interesting drafts, and 3 of their own creations on cask. The bottle list also looked pretty solid, but again, overpriced. I donít see myself rushing back, but I did like it. I wish there was a beer bar with an atmosphere like this that didnít have the crazy wait/crowds, but I know thatís quite an ask considering the location. After all that rambling I just did, Iíd recommend visiting this one at least once. Itís worth a shot so you can decide for yourself whether you like it or not. For myself, Iíll probably revisit eventually, but Iíll try to do so on a weekday or something where the crowds will me as minimal as possible.
