    Possibly the least useful restaurant website I've ever come across.

      I love Via 45! Really great food.

      MGZ's advice sounds like fun too especially when I feel "old and tired" .. sounds like a plan to me for a new attitude!

        It can be a very fun way for a 'hound to approach a meal in a place like Via 45. I must warn, however, that I once did that to ChefMd. It resulted in this:


        For those of you who know that story, I'm sorry to repeat it. For those of you who don't, well, let's just say it was an amazin' meal.

            Joon, it would have been my pleasure to have had you at that table.

              MGZ Awesome story and good charma. My 40th is in a few weeks, I hope I am fortunate enough to come across an unexpected meal like this.

              To the OP, Via 45 is excellent. Enjoy

        Bring a bottle of a demure white and a slightly many red.

        Look the server in the eye and say, "Bring me the meal you would have if you were sittin' where I am, OK?"

        Sometimes, it's fun to just let it go . . . .

          Good choice! Weekend reservations there can be tough to come by lately as they are very popular.

          As far as what to order, well, that's a bit tougher. They change the menu all the time to reflect what's fresh and available. I like their soups and salads and they do both fish and meat mains well.

          All in all you can't go wrong by eating what sounds good as, at least in this place, it usually is.
