Dinner at the Chef’s Table: Autumn in the Countryside

October 18, 2019 Weekly until October 26, 2019 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Via Umbria (1525 Wisconsin Ave NW)

In Italy, a common ritual to highlight great weather is spending weekend getaways in campagna (the countryside). To honor this ritual, we have created a menu that emphasizes the best autumn seasonal ingredients that take center stage in the Italian countryside. This decadent, countryside-inspired menu includes an antipasto of Mushroom Salad with Celeriac, Porcini Vinaigrette and Taleggio Crostini followed by Housemade Pappardelle with Duck Ragu and Pecorino Toscano; dishes that are perfect for a weekend escape to the green countryside of Umbria. 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 great food, great wine, great people!
