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

Date: Sat, January 12th 2019

Northern Italy has perfected enduring the cold weather and using the best that it has to offer to form delicious and delectable creations. As we embrace our own cold weather here in Georgetown, we have picked some of our favorite dishes from various regions, emphasizing the best seasonal ingredients, to create a full menu of Northern Italian specialties. We will start off in Liguria with Raw Diver Scallops, then head to Piemonte for Raviolo stuffed with Pear, Taleggio and Speck in a Brown Butter Sauce with Sage, followed by a stop in Lombardia for Pan Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Sformato and Truffle Sauce with our final stop in Veneto for the famous Tiramisu! 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!

CYOB - Choose Your Own Bottle Purchase wine to accompany your dinner from our downstairs enoteca, affording you an incredible selection of hard-to-find Italian wines at retail prices. Take the Chef's recommendations or find a new favorite. This is a great opportunity to discover wines with the foods they are meant to be enjoyed with.

Wine Flight Each week the Chef will pair each course with a different taste of wine - enjoy four - 4 ounce pours with your dinner for an additional $25.

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. All guests planning to consume alcohol must have valid government-issued identification. Menus are subject to slight change due to market availability.
