Dinner at the Chef's Table: Spring in Northern Italy

Date: Fri, April 12th 2019

After enduring the cold winter, Northern Italy has a plethora of delicious and delectable creations that celebrate the changing of the seasons. As we embrace our own exit from the cold weather here in Georgetown, we have picked some of our favorite dishes from various regions, emphasizing the best seasonally spring ingredients, to create a full menu of Northern Italian specialties. We will start off in the mountains of Friuli-Venezia Giulia with a salad of White Asparagus and Radicchio with Montasio cheese, then head to Lombardia for both the Primo and Secondo of Risotto Milanese and Pan roasted Veal Chop with our final stop in Veneto for the Venetian Classic of Crema Fritta! You will be joined at every course for a description of each dish–feel free to ask questions. Each Dinner at the Chef's Table is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the things we value here at Via Umbria: great food, great wine, great people!

If you plan to purchase wine please arrive early to allow enough time to speak with our team and to fill your order, but in any event we ask that you arrive a few minutes before the start time in order to assure timely seating.
