Eataly’s Baita pop-up will take you to the Italian Alps without leaving Flatiron

If you can’t afford to jet off to the Italian Alps this winter — and let’s face it, you can’t — there’s a pretty good substitute right in the Flatiron neighborhood.

Eataly’s winter pop-up Baita offers all the satisfaction of an après ski drink or meal without the work of actually skiing. It takes over rooftop beer garden Birrera starting Thursday and running all winter, and has plenty to offer in terms of food, drink and décor.
