DAME un’OMBRA

               …is a phrase meant to be shared with others. It’s direct translation,       “Give Me a Shadow,” comes from old Venice; renowned for its historic vendors and markets. White wine merchants would gather at the base of the Torre (tower) dell'Orologio, across from the Piazza San Marco. During the day, these vintners would have to move their stands to stay in the shadow ("ombra") of the tower, lest they wish to sell sour vinegar instead of their temperamental wines! “Let’s drink in the shade/shadows” became synonymous with “let’s have a glass of wine.” The saying continues to be a popular phrase for gathering and imbibing in the Veneto region today!

 

Similarly, OMBRA embodies the concept of moving and changing, much like the vintners of old Venice. We hope you linger and explore all we have to offer: 

  • food is served “rolling fire” (not coursed) and is meant  to be shared!

  • small plates are 6-10 bites. we recommend ordering a few to start!

  • boards are larger portions that highlight our in-house charcuterie program!

  •  our values: nose-to-tail, ethically-sourced, & seasonal ingredients.

  •  napkins + straws are compostable to help divert our food & water waste.
