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.

It was another thrilling year for the New York City dining scene, and last night, Time Out New York held their annual industry awards honoring the best new restaurants, bars and chefs. “It’s been an incredibly exciting year for food and drink,” shares Mari Uyehara, TONY’s Food & Drink editor. “Sensational new restaurants opened on Madison Avenue and in the West Village, but also in Bushwick, Flushing and Red Hook. It also brought national superstars, celebrated cookbook authors and daring upstarts to town. Our roster of winners reflects the astonishing range of drinking and dining experiences in New York City right now.”

Taking over the spacious Stephen Weiss Studio, the 2013 Food & Drink Awards paid tribute to the city’s culinary finest in a grand celebration attended by top toques, restauranteurs, mixologists and industry insiders. Before the winners were announced, guests sampled bites from nominated spots, including L’Apicio, Pork Slope, Dear Bushwick and Gran Electrica, and sipped prosecco, Stella Artois and Frederick Wildman cocktails—all while eagerly anticipating the results.

TONY’s food-obsessed readers voted for their faves out of 40 nominees to determine ten winners in the Readers’ Choice categories—top honors included Best New Restaurant (The NoMad), Chef of the Year (Daniel Humm), Best New Italian Spot (Perla), Best New Cocktail Bar (Pouring Ribbons) and Best New Bakery (Ovenly). Additionally, ten Critics’ Picks were presented, in aptly named categories ranging from Best Big-Pimp’ Brooklyn (Blanca) and The New Nordic Wonder (Aska), to The Same Same But Different Award (Pok Pok NY) and The High Rolling Stoner Sushi Award (Chez Sardine). You can check out the full list of this year’s winners here.
