It is outdoor season and one of our favorite new spots this year for dining alfresco is Alta Linea, located in the High Line Hotel’s courtyard. Alta Linea, the newest restaurant from Epicurean Group that includes Dell’anima, L’Apicio, and L’Artusi offers rustic Italian aperitivi fare featuring Crispy Artichokes, Grilled Eggplant Panini, and Herb Roasted Chicken alongside summertime cocktails such as Frozen Negronis and Aperol Spritz or for dessert Gelato and Sorbetti and Ice Cream Sandwiches. Within walking distance to the High Line and the Chelsea Art Galleries this seasonal restaurant is a delightful meeting place for dinner and drinks after work or after an art exhibit. The space that seats 90 for dining provides a nice ambiance decorated with string lights and paper lanterns and a variety of seating options including banquette, high-tops and communal counter.
