“WE TRY TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING NEW EVERY WEEK.” – DAVE MOHORKO, VIA DOWNER Richway Acres and sausage from Scardinia Specialties.

Chef Dave Mohorko isn’t afraid to step beyond the roster of plates you’d expect to see in an Italian eatery at Via Downer. He’s served up blackened salmon with Cajun seasonings and a West African peanut soup. “We try to come up with something new every week,” says Mohorko. “For example, I’ve done an osso buco with berbere, the Ethiopian spice mix that includes dried chili pepper, cardamom, paprika, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.” Additional entrees include Tuscan chicken, beef spiedini and fettuccine with sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese, spinach and basil. Whether it’s pizza, pasta, a simple caprese salad or something more substantial, get out and grab yourself a little of la dolce vita. It’s not hard to do in this town. n Milwaukee Magazine | DINING EXTRA 2013 |
