BAITA

BAITA

Winter in NYC never looked so cozy! Step into Baita, an alpine-inspired restaurant experience taking over 5th Ave and 23rd Street opening on Tuesday, December 29, and be transported to the iconic winter getaway of the Italian Alps.

In Piemonte, baita (pronounced <bye-tah>) is the Italian word for a small ski lodge in the Italian Alps. These cozy dwellings are the ideal place to escape the elements after an exhilarating day outdoors, while enjoying simple food and drink, such as rustic polenta, housemade ragù, and mulled wine. Each single-party baita provides a safe outdoor dining experience that is still shielded from the worst of the elements, so you can dine safely and comfortably outside throughout the winter season. These SolarFi Privé Pods are solar-powered, providing users the electricity needed to keep you warm while dining.

GET A TASTE OF ALPINE DISHES

Our chefs will bring the tastes of the Italian Alps to your NYC neighborhood with dishes like Raclette, a favorite of Italy’s mountain regions during the winter months. Our Reading Raclette is warmed up over an open flame and then cascaded over fingerling potatoes and roasted root vegetables and accompanied with Rovagnati Prosciutto Cotto. Or, warm up with Wild Hive Polenta, garnished with your choice of toppings like housemade ragù alla Bolognese, ragù di cinghiale (wild boar), and more.

Then feast as you would when finally reaching the mountain peak with the Cena del Rifugio (Mountain Hut Dinner): a hearty dinner for two featuring an overflowing spread of salumi e formaggi, followed by Creekstone Farms Arrosto di Manzo with creamy Polenta al Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, braised beans with escarole and peppery arugula salad with Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico – sure to warm you up on a crisp winter day. And to finish off the meal? Don't miss this twist on an Italian classic: Loacker Tiramisù, made with chocolate-covered espresso wafer cookies from Loacker.
