Time Out says
Journey north for the winter at this mountain-lodge takeover of Eataly’s rooftop bar, La Birreria, revamped with Adirondack chairs, pine trees and vintage Dolomite artwork. The namesake concept, baita (literally, “small ski lodge in the Alps”), is a holistic idea of not only snowy slopes but also warm hearths, meat and cheese, and festive drink. The latter takes the form of a 60-glass Italian wine selection; three caldi (hot) cocktails with a base of tea, hot chocolate or eggnog; and classic-riffing cups like a Barr Hill Gin–charged White Hot Negroni and a frosty, espresso-laden Grappacino with almond grappa. Eataly executive chef Fitz Tallon taps into inspiration from the Alps with dishes like Swiss specialty raclette, serving Vermont's Spring Brook Farm cheese with pickled vegetables, potatoes and pork loin, and several varieties of polenta featuring mix-ins like Wild Hive buckwheat, Arcadian Pastures meats and Brooklyn Brine sauerkraut.
