IMG_0020

For one the most authentic Italian meals in town, head to Via Emilia 9, a family owned, charming restaurant near Lincoln Road, where all of the pastas are made by hand and you can watch the Sfoglina’s detailed process while you dine. She will even customize the filling of your stuffed pastas-assuming you stick to the regional ingredients.

 

The menu is authentic- only dishes  from  the Emilia Romagna region are served and all ingredients except for the  fruits, vegetables, flour and eggs are imported from Italy.  The dishes are hearty and you can taste the freshness of the ingredients.

 

Start with a plate of cured meats and cheeses and tortellini in broth, then delight in one of the tasty pasta dishes. Our favorites included: the Cappellacci do Zucca (pumpkin stuffed pasta) and the Tagliatelle al Prosciutto di Parma (Tagliatelle with Parma Ham). An assortment of Italian wines is available and offered at discounted prices during happy hour.

 

In the  tradition of true Italian cooking, Via Emilia’s open kitchen allows guests to view the pasta making and cooking process, which results in a delightful experience. The restaurant is chic and cozy and has a little market where you can buy authentic Italian products.

Chefs from DB Bistro Moderne, The Bazaar by Jose Andres, Artisan Beach House, Pinch Kitchen, and Jimmy’z Kitchen will be competing in the Miami event.

To close the evening, Chef Maria Orantes of Pubbelly Noodle Bar will prepare a pastry course featuring Perfect Puree of Napa Valley.
