A New Restaurant in the Academic Village

New park - daytime - Schafer

The University community and its Downtown neighbors will soon be able to enjoy a delicious Italian menu on campus at a new restaurant at the Village Park.

Osteria 100, scheduled to open in late spring or early summer at Wood Street and the Boulevard of the Allies, is part of the new Village Park that officially opened last September.

Surrounded by a canopy of trees, colorful plantings, a colonnade and a stunning glass stair tower and fountain, the lively restaurant borders the south edge of the Park and features indoor and outdoor dining areas. Design considerations for the restaurant and Park included making both "transparent" to each other. The large windows along the Park can open in mild weather to provide view and ventilation to the restaurant. At night the lights of the restaurant will act as a draw for activity.

Osteria 100 is the third in the city for restaurateurs Tom Trimm and Chuck Hammel, owners of Cioppino Restaurant and Cigar Bar and Osteria 2350, both located in the Strip District.

Osteria (pronounced O-sta-REE-a) refers to a casual Italian eating establishment, similar to a tavern but less formal than a ristorante or trattoria, that offers seasonally prepared dishes featuring local ingredients.Osteria 100 - fresh tomato mozz
