Baita at Eataly
Escape the crowded city streets and head to the 14th floor of the Fifth Avenue Hotel to experience a taste of hearty Italian cuisine in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. Baita (pronounced bye-tah) has a retractable glass roof, warm, inviting lights, faux-fur throws and pelt-covered chairs to keep you cosy during those cold, winter nights. Featuring traditional boiled polenta served on a wooden board, raclette with cured ham crusted in rosemary and beef shank to share, the food is rustic, sensational fare. It also serves a traditional Italian flaming cocktail called Parampampoli – for those in need of an extra dose of heat this winter. Short on New Year’s plans? Baita will also host a party on the night of the 31st where the restaurant will transform into an open floor for dancing to ring in 2018 in suitably hip New York fashion.
