It may still feel like winter outside at the moment, but ready or not spring is on its way. Flowers are blooming, butterflies are swarming, and the sun is setting later each day. And if you're as excited as I am, you're already making a bucket list for when the warmer weather arrives. In addition to planting flowers in your backyard, and stocking up on this year's craziest pool floats, you should probably carve out some time to visit , the new NYC restaurant that's basically a floral wonderland.
SERRA by Birreria, the rooftop restaurant at Eataly's Flatiron location, is transformed every season with a new theme, menu and decor—if you had a chance to stop by last winter, you got a taste of the dreamy scheme. For Spring 2019 covered the space in flowers—a mix between real, preserved, and paper—to create the look of a "flowering greenhouse." Mission accomplished. There are pops of pink, fuchsia, yellow and peach hanging from the ceiling and climbing every pillar. Everywhere you look, spring is exploding. Pro tip: make sure your phone is fully charged before you arrive because you're going to want to take at least 50 photos.
Plan your trip to Eataly NYC
So what else can you look forward to besides capturing the perfect picture for Instagram? The spring menu, which is inspired by the Italian countryside, is full of dishes that will having you dreaming about them for weeks to come, like a basil pesto-topped gnocchi, broccoli rabe burrata, and the "celebratory" porchetta . Oh and there's a new Spritz cocktail menu that could put rosé to shame (don't @me). If you're in NYC this month, SERRA by Birreria is taking part of Eataly's Restaurant Fest with a $28 two-course menu, and $25 bottles of spring wines now through March 31st.
