Dinner at the Chef's Table: Summer in Full Bloom at Via Umbria

Date: Thu, July 5th 2018

Estate is the Italian word for summer, and it is the time of relaxing, eating and going to the beach to practice something Italians have mastered, “Il dolce far niente”, literally “the Sweetness of doing nothing”. Chef Liam has created a menu that pays homage to flavors that are present when estate is in full bloom, starring a starter panzanella salad of local beefsteak and cherry tomatoes, followed by handmade spaghetti alla chitarra with fresh tomato ragu and housemade guanciale, creating splendor for everyone involved! Chef Liam will join you at the table at every course to describe what has been prepared and to answer any questions you may have. This will surely be an experience that you are not soon to forget, so buy your tickets today and don’t miss out!
