Stella 34 Trattoria
Time Out says
What could be better than the view from the top of the Empire State Building? A view of the Empire State Building, especially when you're enjoying a high quality meal while you admire it. Up on the sixth floor of Macy's flagship store is where you'll find Stella 34 Trattoria, a classy Italian eatery that's open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, brunch and drinks at the bar.
You'll find all the usual culprits of Italian cuisine – pizza and pasta – but this stuff is fresh and made in-house daily. There are also small plates to peruse, with the likes of oven roasted veggies, ricotta fritters and arancini, as well as meatball or chicken pagnottella (sandwiches). Those with a sweet tooth will also be pleased to hear that there's an in-house gelateria, Vivoli.
Stella 34 Trattoria offers Neapolitan pizza from wood-burning ovens with fior di latte mozzarella, Caputo flour imported from Naples, San Marzano tomatoes from the foothills of Mount Vesuvius and water meticulously sourced from local wells to match the pH and mineral balance of the natural spring water in Naples. The menu showcases al forno entrées, house-made pasta, fresh salads, "piccoli piatti" – signature Italian antipasti designed for sharing – and an all-Italian wine list of more than 100 selections.
Stella 34 Trattoria is also the New York home to Italy's finest gelateria, Vivoli. After over 80 years of delighting customers in Italy, Stella 34 Trattoria is their first-ever location outside of Florence. Famed for their crema and rotation of seasonal flavors, Vivoli remains dedicated to creating pure gelati and sorbetti with fresh, high-quality ingredients and family crafted recipes.
Open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, brunch, and drinks at the bar or lounge.
