New york, New yum

Over the holidays my family and I took a quick 2 day trip to New York and besides the fact that it was absolutely FREEZING we had an amazing time. Thought I'd share some of our food experiences as they were all incredible!

The cask beer is brewed right in the
back under the sign
On our first day, we had lunch at Eataly, which was definitely much more than just a supermarket with a restaurant.  The motto here is "We cook what we sell, and we sell what we cook", and that's not hard to believe when everywhere you turn is a different stand selling a different type of food. Produce, fish, meat, ice cream, even wine and homemade bread, this place literally has it all.  We didn't come to shop but I spent quite a while browsing the stands and sampling different foods throughout the market.  If that's not enough to wow you, this place has six different full-service restaurants, as well as 6 other caffe and deli-type eateries.  With that many choices it's impossible to find something you won't like here. We ate at Birreria, the rooftop patio (with a retractable roof, thank god). Specializing in brewing unfiltered, unpasteurized cask ale's just across the table where your siting, and serving Italian food with Austria and German influence, this is not something you want to miss on your New York trip.
The "Portabello" - $17: Grilled portabello mushrooms with
piquillo pepperonato and arugula
"Costolleta Di Maiale con Bomba" - $24: Bensmiller Farm (IA)
pork chop with fried fingerling potatoes, roasted onions, and
Calabrian bomba vinaigrette 
"Cotechino" - #21: Emilia Romagna inspired pork sausage with
fingering potatoes and arugula
"Insalata Cotta Crude" - $13: Romaine, artichoke, potato,
roasted onion, cauliflower, red cabbage, cucumber, olives
 Needless to say, everything tasted pretty amazing. Next time I want to come in the summer so I can fully reap the benefits of the rooftop patio!

More photos to come from the rest of the trip..
