2019 Wedding Trends in Chicago - Osteria via Stato Skip Navigation

Osteria via Stato

Thank you for choosing to dine with us. To help ensure the safety of our guests and employees during this time, we have set in place new dining standards. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and loyalty.

We’re Making Dining Indoors Safer 

As dining moves indoors, our top priority remains our commitment to providing a safe, clean, and healthy experience.

That is why we are excited to implement technology developed by AIRPHX (pronounced “air-fix”) into all of our restaurants nationwide.  After extensive research and with the advice of experts, we’ve concluded that this is the best system for us.

Here’s how it works

AIRPHX features “cold plasma” chambers intended to kill harmful airborne and surface organisms throughout the day. Used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, Olympic training centers, universities, police and fire stations, and casinos, it eliminates 90-98% of influenza, coronaviruses, norovirus, hepatitis, salmonella, listeria, e.coli, and over 30 common bacteria and viruses both in the air and on surfaces.

This is just one more important step that we are taking to continue improving health and safety measures in our restaurants, and we want to thank you for your continued confidence in us.

Additional Safety Measures

Dine-in capacity will remain at 50% in the dining room, 50% on the patio.
We’re introducing disposable and digital menus and will maintain thorough sanitation procedures and continuous hand washing.
Guests are required to wear masks while in the restaurant, masks are required during all interactions with the service team and only to be removed when eating or drinking.
All guests must confirm they have not traveled to any area on the current travel restriction list within the last 14 days
To help offset restrictions on our business resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, a 5% surcharge has been added to all guest checks. If you would like this removed, please let us know.

Your continued support and patience during this time are truly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Spring has sprung in Chicago and wedding season is upon us!  With ample opportunity to personalize your wedding with the well-thought out details and finishing touches, Osteria Via Stato is the perfect backdrop for the 2019 wedding trends.  While ambiance and delicious food never go out of style, here are the trends you’ll see making an appearance this year:

Floral Installations:  Nature trends are taking the limelight, and luckily for our couples, the existing archways easily facilitate an ornate or minimalist focal point. Couples can choose from bright florals, greenery, and unexpected additions like pampas grass and wheat.  Each distinctive installation blends perfectly with Osteria’s warm wood tones.

Ceremonies In The Round:  All of the people near & dear are invited to the nuptials so it’s not too surprising that couples want a creative, unique way to keep their guests close to witness their union. With increased visibility and an intimate ceremony, a circular setup conveys a more inclusive style.

Minimalism:  This home trend has permeated the wedding aesthetic.  The rustic and romantic ambiance of Osteria Via Stato negates the need for over the top décor.  The trend, which incorporates natural elements, can be seen in the wood ceilings and the wooden farm tables.  A simple color palette with crisp white napkins and flickering candles is both pure and beautiful.  A trend that will stand the test of time.

Long tables with low florals:  The communal eating trend is finally coming to weddings.  Forget the traditional round tables and gather your family and friends in larger groups for sharing food, stories and laughter.  The wooden farm tables at Osteria are perfect for this modern style of seating.

Favors and Welcome Bags:  Couples are transitioning from hangover cure packages to more custom, personalized welcome bags. Whether it’s a custom sticker on a sweet treat, a city staple, information about local sites and experiences, or a meaningful token from the couple, there are plenty of fun ways to gift your guests.   To mitigate the pre-wedding to-do list, not only does Osteria Via Stato offer all of our couples $20 Sunday brunch vouchers to include for their guests, there are also options for a welcome treat their guests won’t get at any other Chicago wedding.
