NAIA Is New

Enjoy international favorites and craft cocktails as well as the bottomless brunch daily while listening to music by resident DJ and classical violinist Bud Cahill, who plays on Saturdays and Sundays poolside.

Founded by Michael Pitsinos, the walls inside and outside the restaurant are adorned by the art of Domingo Zapata. Additional art by Christopher Pugliese, also known as the Downtown DaVinci, and Costa Picadas are on display.

NAIA’s dinner menu includes smoked salmon pinwheels with cucumber, cream cheese and chives, lavraki with lemon and broccolini and cacio e pepe spaghetti with grated pecorino Romano and black pepper. While lounging poolside, indulge in watermelon feta skewers with mint, prosciutto flatbread with prosciutto, mozzarella and pineapple and lobster mini rolls with toasted butter brioche, scallion and chips.
