For those who deign to walk High Line this time of year, there's a new spot to grab a drink and recover from doing battle with the tourists. Alta Linea, literally high line in Italian, is a new outdoor bar in the front yard of the High Line Hotel, from the Dell'anima/L'Apicio/L'Artusi team. The entirely outdoor space, which opens tomorrow, has an Italian focus and there's space for about 90.

The Menu: The aperitif-focused drink menu from Joe Campanale offers riffs on negronis (including a frozen one) and spritzes like the punto with Cocchi Americano, Punt e Mes, soda, sparkling wine and grapefruit. The food menu is mostly focused on small "aperitivi" like funghi misti bruschetta, crispy artichokes with salsa verde, and some grilled flatbreads, but there are a few larger plates like a burger and a roasted chicken with salsa verde, crispy potatoes, and pecorino. Dessert rolls in on little gelato cart, which offers scoops and ice cream sandwiches in flavors like strawberry shortcake.
