It’s been over a month since Via Elisa, the boutique pasta and sauce shop on the Westside, announced that they were closing their doors. It’s sad to see any business close, but Via Elisa has been the Atlanta name for fresh pasta for years, and their closure creates a major void in this space. As such, many of the local foodies ran out to stock up before they closed their doors. Unfortunately, that didn’t include me – I procrastinated, then I was traveling over their final days and couldn’t make it there for one last purchase.
But last weekend I was shopping for ingredients for the Ad Hoc at Home stuffed meatballs with pappardelle, and I didn’t have time to make pasta, so I wanted to see what Whole Foods had in the way of fresh pasta. As you can see, as of November 8, they were still offering tagliatelle and pappardelle from Via Elisa.
If you missed your opportunity to buy Via Elisa pasta like I did, now’s your chance.
Anyone out there in Internet land know if maybe Via Elisa is going to continue selling through reseller’s like Whole Foods? Or perhaps this was a frozen batch that Whole Foods still had in stock?
