Restaurant Review: SERRA by Birreria

The rooftop beer garden of Eataly in Manhattan’s Flatiron district changes seasonally. Although I had gone there for a drink when it first opened, I had not been back and wanted to give SERRA by Birreria a shot.

Located on the 60th floor of a Financial District building is one of Danny Meyer’s newest restaurants. Manhatta offers a three-course prix-fix hospitality-included menu with stunning panorama views of the city. The meal started with a quick vegetable amuse bouche along with bread for the table.
