Awesome rooftop location near the Flatiron building. The house beers are nothing to write home about, but are worth trying nonetheless, that is if you donít mind dropping a Hamilton on a pint of beer. The other beers on draft are well picked, with some good Italian selections. If this place was like 25% cheaper it would be awesome. But at the price point, itís not the type of place Iíd keep coming back to.

Cool location on top of Eataly, apparently others had my same thought. Space is tough if thereís a crowd, but worth the trip. Line up is limited but tasty. Not a regular but good for a change of pace, if youíre in the neighborhood or have reservations and out of towners.

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.

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.

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.

Went here once with the gf. Nice rooftop bar and seating area great for nice weather. They have a bunch of italian beers in addition to their own micro brews - didnít try any of theirs so I canít really gauge the quality. Food was good, not great. Cool place though.

Rooftop restaurant atop the massive Eataly market. We visited in late October and it was hotter than usual. They had about 20 space heaters going, with the roof closed mind you, so it was uncomfortably hot in there. Despite that fact, the food was much better than I expected it to be at such a touristy spot. My steak was cooked to perfection, and my wifeís fish was also excellent. There were two house made cask ales on when I visited (there are normally three, but one was fresh out). Both were good, but not great. Itís kind of pricey for what you get but hey, youíre on a rooftop in an expensive area of NYC, so what do you expect? It was a little overly touristy for me, so I donít know that I would go back, but it was definitely worth a visit.

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.

Birreria really blew me away. I came for the restaurant, not because I was seeking out the cask beers here, but I am certainly glad to have tried both which were available that day. What could have easily gone astray as a homebrew experiment attached to a fiefdom in the Batali empire is instead a unique and complete culinary experience with very seriously-made and -served beer.
The food is incredible, the menu works charmingly to set up the big beers and the small, and the setting is whimsical without being in any way unserious. Birreria strikes the right note by walking you up stairs inscribed with Danteís journey to heaven, and Birreria is a heaven where, like Dante, you cannot stay. The servers allow you one more beer after you have finished your meal.
Itís only fair; itís New York, and you have other things to do. But for the time you are in the airy, cleanly-decorated rooftop, with its attentive service and perfect-temperature cask ales, itís all like a dream. It costs money, but something this worthwhile on earth must cost money in order to keep faith with the followers. Consider it a small indulgence to pay $10 for your cask-drawn pint.
