GUEST POST – by Debra Wong of Ate by Ate
Feel the breeze through your hair as you dine in style on one of the city’s chicest rooftop patios! Open 7 days a week, Trattoria Nervosa’s beautiful rooftop patio offers an awe-inspiring, panoramic view of the quaint village of Yorkville from above, offering diners a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle down below. Known as one of Yorkville’s “little yellow houses”, Nervosa combines traditional, authentic Italian dishes and cooking techniques with fresh and exciting ingredients that make Nervosa one of the most popular patio dining destinations for lunch, dinner, and dessert.
Bathed in shades of cream, warm caramel, gray, and black and adorned with wall ornaments, Nervosa’s rooftop patio is the perfect place to sit back and relax with a glass of wine and any one of their summery dishes such as veal, beef, and pork meatballs simmered and smothered in tomato sauce with smoked provolone ($13.99), or their pan-seared scallops served over top a refreshing panzanella salad of farro, zucchini, butternut squash, and corn ($14.99). Settle into the sunny balcony area or opt for the peace and quiet of the shaded, cushion-lined seats for a memorable and delectable dining experience in one of Yorkville’s most iconic dining hot spots.
Appetizers: $8.50-$15, Mains: $15-$27, Desserts: $8.
