The North End is getting a brand-new hotspot tomorrow. Umbria will open at 250 Hanover Street with a menu of Italian classics and dry-aged meats in a chic new multi-level space.
Owner Frank DePasquale is reinventing Umbria, which was a Boston nightlife staple for over 20 years downtown. The DePasquale family is bringing the concept back to their home turf in a refreshed way. “Umbria set the stage for putting together a great night out. It had a dinner club where you could have a great meal, then you could finish the night with a dance, a drink, music, and a friendship. We’re going to bring that special experience to the North End and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with our family, friends, and new guests,” said Owner Frank DePasquale.
The sleek space has three floors of dining with a rooftop lounge that is one of the only rooftops in the North End. Taking over the former Ristorante Fiore on Hanover Street, the entire building was completely redesigned with high-end finishes. The team brought in Italian stonework, exposed beams and neutral tones, creating a space with a capacity for 368 guests, including 80 on the rooftop.
The Depasquale Ventures Corporate Chef Nello Caccioppoli is overseeing the menu. Obviously, the menu is heavily Italian influenced, but has a steakhouse twist with dry aged, waygu and other top cuts on the menu.
Don’t miss the Truffle Burrata, Baked Stuffed Lobster, Umbria Cioppino, Veal Parmigiana, Gnocchetti al Cinghiale and Pappardelle Ragu and if you are really hungry try the 36 oz. Prime Tomahawk Ribeye for Two. But be sure to save room for dessert, because unlike many of the restaurants in the North End, they have a nice little dessert menu and of course the signature DePasquale Espresso Martinis.
Umbria will be open daily for dinner and drinks from 4pm-1am and this week they are starting with just dinner service and will open up for late night in the next two weeks.
