This enclosed, heated cabin 14 floors atop the Eataly food hall is dressed as a Piedmont ski lodge, with wooden walls and a retractable roof, open for business as a La Birreria pop-up venture during the winter months. Family-style beef shank, a polenta bar, aged cheeses and a variety of pastas fill out a menu complemented by house-brewed beers in an unusual space with excellent views of the Flatiron Building. L & D (daily). $$$
Open since 1997, the dashing bistro has become a mainstay with its authentic bistro fare (steak au poivre, duck confit, pan-roasted salmon), plats du jour, charming Parisian ambience, weekend brunch, and breads and pastries to die for (and to take home) from the bakery next door.
