Dine At An Italian Alps-Inspired Ski Lodge In The Big Apple
The pop-up restaurant is designed to recreate the experience of a small ski lodge in northern Italy
With the winter season approaching, going on a trip to the Italian Alps might be a dream. But before forking over the cash, aspiring travelers can visit Baita, a pop-up restaurant at Eataly in New York that’s just as festive and cozy as the ski chalets in northern Italy.
In Piemontese, the word ‘baita’ refers to a small ski lodge located in the Italian Alps. But for Eataly, it refers to a homey wooden cabin located on the 14th floor of its Flatiron location. There are no sights of ski slopes here, but the temperature could soon resemble that of snowy mountains. Baita is equipped with floor heaters to keep everyone warm when the winter breeze hits the deck.
Adding to the festive décor, Baita completes the experience with a winter menu. One can expect delicious bowls of stew, polenta, raclette and pasta. Eataly’s wide variety of wines are always available as well.
