Celebrate a “Felice Anno Nuovo” with an Italian Dinner Party Feast
Gather friends and family for an Italian-style New Year’s Eve feast at Osteria Via Stato. The inviting surroundings of Osteria, a casual Italian tavern where dining guests gather to enjoy antipasti, wine, plates of pasta and more, all served with the warmth and hospitality of family, is the perfect setting to reflect on 2009 and ring in 2010.
The “Famous Italian Dinner Party” menu features some of Executive Chef David DiGregorio’s signature dishes, such as Pappardelle Three Meat Ragu, Chicken Mario (inspired by a visit to “Sostanza” restaurant in Florence) and Tender-Braised Beef Short Rib with creamy polenta. The complete menu is listed below. Celebratory dinner specials and a Prosecco toast will also help guests at Osteria Via Stato usher in the new year in grand fashion.
Osteria Via Stato will be open for New Year’s Eve dining beginning at 5:00pm. The last seating will be at 9:45pm on Thursday, December 31. Contact Osteria directly or visit OpenTable for reservations.
