Sabbia on the Roof at Eataly NYC

If there’s one place you can call foodie heaven, it’s Eataly New York Flatiron.  It was my first time visiting, and I did not want to leave.  This place is huge, and has everything you want under one roof.  Speaking of roof, we enjoyed a delicious dinner on the rooftop Sabbia

I don’t even know where to start with this delicious restaurant.  Sabbia is a laid back dining experience that provides you with a summer feel. 
Sabbia is La Birreria’s summer pop-up concept, and transports one from the bustling streets of Flatiron, New York City to the Italian seaside. The rooftop is enclosed with clear glass that opens up on those beautiful summer days. 
As we arrived we were greeted with a very accommodating hostess.  The menu had so many amazing choices and the wine/cocktail/beer list was on point.  The hubby and I decided to order some red wine.  My kids don’t drink soda but that night we figured that they could have a treat and enjoy some Italian soda.  Our waiter Kevin was super friendly and gave us some recommendations on what to order. 
We started off with some SALUMI-FORMAGGI platter (cheese and salami), INSALATA D’ORZO E TONNATO (Orzo with Roasted Tomatoes, Capers, Grilled Onions, Artichoke & Preserved Tuna Based Sauce) and FRITTO MISTO ALLA LIGURE Assorted Fried Seafood Ligurian Style.  This was the perfect starter and I couldn’t stop eating it.  Even my kids were in on all the delicious cheeses and seafood. 
Main course was the perfect amount after enjoying all of the appetizers. I went with the POLPO ALLA PLANCHA S(eared Octopus with Chickpea, Almonds, Marinated Peppers & Taggiasca Olives), the hubby enjoyed some PESCE SPADA CON CIAMBOTTA (Grilled Sword fish with Braised Vegetables in a Tomato Broth) which he couldn’t stop raving about, and finally the kids both wanted steak so they had TAGLIATA DI MANZO (Grilled Wagyu Bohemian Steak with Arugula & Parmigiano Reggiano) and loved every bite. 
At this point we were feeling pretty satisfied, but of course you can’t finish a fantastic dinner and not have some dessert.  The kids both shared gelato and sorbetti flavors of Cioccolato and Limone, and the hubby and I shared a chocolate bunet, which was out of this world delicious. 
Overall my experience at Sabbia was amazing.  I’ll definitely be returning there the next time I’m in NYC.
