Portare Via Take Home Dinners


This week Via Umbria begins our nightly dinners to-go service that we call portare via. Italian for "take home" our portare via dinners are a full meal for two, highlighting local and organic ingredients by Via Umbria CHEF JODIE STEINER.  Menus will change nightly at prices ranging from $25 to $65 for dinner for two.  Prepared in our upstairs laboratorio, you can place your order up to a week in advance either online, by email or by phone and will be available for pickup from late afternoon through 7:00pm.  We'll even deliver curbside to save you the hassle of parking.  Then simply go home, heat your feast and enjoy.
