Thrillist Feature: NYC’s Best Winter Cocktails

Monday, February 8, 2016 at 03:02 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

While the weather outside might not be frightful just yet (what’s up, El Niño), it’s still the most wonderful time of the year. And there’s no better way to embrace the spirit of the season than with boozy holiday drinks. To help spread the joy, I tracked down some of best festive cocktails available now in New York City.

Alta Linea: Italian Aperitivi on the High Line

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 05:06 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

In Italy, early evenings are all about aperitivi: traditional pre-dinner drinks accompanied by small bites, which dates back to the late 1700s. And the Epicurean Groupthe team behind neighborhoods favorites dell’anima, L’ArtusiAnfora and L’Apiciohighlights the classic aperitivi custom with their latest Italian-inspired restaurant, Alta Linea.

Located in the High Line Hotel’s picturesque courtyard garden, this seasonal outdoor eatery presents a modern take on rustic Italian cuisine. Settle into the tree-lined, 90-seat space for flavorful small plates and aperitivi al fresco, as well as full dinner entrées like Branzino in Cartoccio with olives, fregola, fennel, and garlic. Group beverage director Joe Campanale curated another vibrant libation list including signature spritzes and classic cocktails—there’s even a frozen Negroni on the menu. I’ll take two, grazie.

Alta Linea (meaning “high line” in Italian) is officially open, and there’s a good chance you’ll find me there, soaking up summer and sipping Pomello Punches.
