NYC-based hospitality group Apicii is unveiling Bar Harta, an al-fresco wine and tapas terrace, transporting guests to a lush, second-story setting with food and beverage offerings that draw inspiration from Spanish, French and Italian cuisines.
Guests will also discover an approachable wine selection, sparkling cocktails and shareable bites inspired by the wine culture of the Western Mediterranean. The wine list is approachable for effortless spring and summer sipping, available in a variety of carafe sizes with more than a dozen diverse options on tap, from a Sicilian red to a white Burgundy to refreshing Prosecco. A selection of sparkling cocktails, includes several spritzes, are also being offered.
The drinks are accompanied by wine-friendly dips and small plates such as Ricotta with truffle honey and hazelnuts; mint-smoked charred eggplant; tuna tartare with tonnato sauce; chorizo croquettes with romesco aioli; and blackberry-pistachio topped burrata salad.
At the same time, Bar Cima is introducing its outdoor rooftop space, featuring breathtaking views of the park, the Empire State Building and the East and Hudson Rivers. Tacalle, Apicii's hidden taco courtyard, is slated to open this summer. Stay tuned!
