Who could resist recreating a little Lady and the Tramp moment with squid ink pasta and an up-close view of the Empire State Building?
Um, no one. And that's why everyone should be made aware of Ai Fiori's brand new Sky Terrace, an intimate rooftop oasis nestled amongst the skyscrapers of Midtown.
Whether you're craving a quick escape to Italy or are simply seeking a date night destination with plenty of wow-factor, the recently-debuted extension of the Michelin-starred Italian eatery is a must-visit this summer.
The al fresco terrace is perched on the 11th floor of the luxe Langham Hotel, dotted with red umbrellas and lush greenery which set a romantic scene for Ai Fiori's acclaimed selection of bites and sips.
Along with some of the restaurant's signature dishes, including the Troife Nero, made with squid ink pasta and crustacean ragù, the Sky Terrace will feature curated specials from Executive Chef Lauren DeSteno, like the Lasagna Di Carciofi (artichoke & spinach lasagna, béchamel, ricotta, pecorino), as well as specialty cocktails such as the Blossom Punch, the Perch, and a rosé, gin, and combier pamplemousse grapefruit concoction dubbed the Falconeri Rosa, created in partnership with luxury Italian retailer Falconeri.
While this hidden gem is sure to impress, you can bet it won't be kept a secret for long. Snag your reservations ASAP!
