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 Group—the team behind neighborhoods favorites dell’anima, L’Artusi, Anfora and L’Apicio—highlights 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.
