A Look Into Our Winter Menu
Heading into winter, Chef Serge Smith has created perhaps his most exciting menu to date. Drawing from experiences in Italy, he wanted the backbone of his menu to be classic, rustic Italian dishes whose simplicity reflect the quality of the handmade ingredients. The menu offers a perfect blend of comfort food inspired by the home cooked meals he ate while living in Italy, such as Spaghetti All’Amatriciana, as well as inventive dishes like Squid Ink Risotto.
The menu offers a variety of dishes from all around Italy, with a particular focus on rich, Tuscan flavors that are great for a cold, winter night. Cozy up with a glass of Sangiovese and the Braised Boar Shank as you watch the snow fall on Teton Village.
Perhaps the most exciting updates to the menu are the pizzas. We cranked the temperature of our pizza oven up to 900 degrees so the pizzas don’t cook slowly and have a soggy crust. Instead, Osteria’s pizzas resemble those of Naples, where pizza originated back in the 18th century. Our Neapolitan crust is crispy with small amounts of char to add flavor to the dough; but when you bite into the crust, the inside is soft and warm for the perfect balance in flavor and texture. Chef Smith bulked up this section of the menu to include nine pizzas, perhaps because he can be found snacking on pizza while doing paperwork in the office after a busy night.
Interested in pairing the perfect wine with our new winter menu selections? Jeremy Walker, Osteria’s own Sommelier, is here to guide you through our extensive Italian wine list. Walker is fresh off two months studying wine throughout the Italian countryside. He worked at vineyards and restaurants honing his knowledge of viniculture, continuing to develop his palate, and - of course - working with pairing wine with food to complete the ultimate Italian dining experience.
