Italian aperitivi & al fresco dining along The High Line. 


In Italy, early afternoons may be reserved for riposo (siesta) but early evenings are all about aperitivi - the Italian tradition of pre-dinner drinks accompanied by small bites which dates back to the late 1700s.  “Aperitivo” is derived from the Latin word meaning “to open” and aperitivi are designed to open your appetite so that you can enjoy your upcoming meal. Today, aperitivi can still be enjoyed at leisure in cosmopolitan Italian cities such as Milano, Torino, and Roma.

Alta Linea is the Italian-inspired restaurant by restaurateur and beverage expert Joe Campanale, located in the picturesque courtyard garden of The High Line Hotel.  Joe Campanale brings you a vibrant beverage list of aperitivi cocktails such as spritzes and negronis (frozen and otherwise) along with a hand-picked wine list of artisanal Italian wines. There will also be a full dinner menu by Chef Francis Peabody, alumnus of dell'anima and Mission Cantina.
