Serra by Birreria / Eataly

Recently, Andrew and I went to Serra by Birreria in Eataly.  I’ve always loved how this gorgeous rooftop restaurant completely redecorates to reflect the current season.  I wanted to go for Autumn but I’m really glad we finally made it there during the holiday season.  Serra by Birreria is basically a winter wonderland.  We made the earliest reservation possible because 1) we’re brunch people and 2) we thought it would be easier to avoid crowds.  Unfortunately, they don’t have a brunch menu, so I ended up eating a beet salad for breakfast.  But no complaints because it was delicious.  The dish was comprised of beets, grapefruit, pistachios and sea salt.  Andrew opted for a salmon dish but I have no idea what was in his.  The one thing I will say is that the restaurant is not very vegetarian friendly.  I had been eyeing the brussel sprouts but found out that they were cooked in pork fat and another seeming vegetarian risotto was also cooked in meat juice.  Both of us really enjoyed the ambiance and decor!

The funniest part of our experience was seeing a girl completely dressed up for the holidays arrive around the same time as us.  She and her photographer spent exactly 43 minutes taking photos in front of the winter arch.  She then proceeded to change outfits in the bathroom and leave without even eating there.  It’s so amusing to see someone spend so much time getting photos in a place that they’re not even patronizing.  I so wish I could find her photo and see her caption.  I feel like lately I’ve been continuously reminded of how instagram does not reflect reality.

    The decor was also delightful in autumn (which is when I went), but I do like the look of their winter decor too! :D
