Chamber Luncheon: Dino Venti

Good, clean food is Venti Restaurants commitment to finding the best ingredients – locally and regionally sourced and raised with respect for the environment, animals and farmers – to serve to you. “Their community.” As a family-owned restaurant, they understand the importance of quality ingredients. For two decades they have striven to fill your plates with all-natural products.

The utilization of a farm-to-table concept with their produce allows Venti to offer products rich in nutrients and all the natural benefits of fresh products from hard working people here in our community. Their proteins are carefully selected with diligence and understanding of the necessity of freshness and cleanliness. The seafood found at Ventis is the highest of quality and all wild caught from the Pacific Northwest. They make an effort to accommodate dietary needs and the pursuit of healthy products by offering many gluten free friendly, vegetarian, and vegan options. They accomplish this by creating and producing many of their products with fresh ingredients in their facilities. This process allows them to eliminate chemicals, additives, preservatives, hormones, GMOs, MSG and potentially harmful products from our food.

Venti moved from their original location in the Reed Opera House in the summer of 2008. Their downtown Salem location is bigger and allows for a full kitchen and a full basement bar. They like to say they “crossed the road.”

While they serve lots of meatless and gluten free options, chicken teriyaki is the core of their offerings – the original rice bowl at the Reed Opera House was served with skewered chicken. By Dino Venit’s account, he has prepped 50 tons of chicken. In honor of the feat they redesigned their logo to pay homage to the chicken. The rooster logo is a nod to the animal loved for its power, boldness and beauty.

Venti’s strives to carry unique micro-brews and ciders. The local beer-drinking crowd is enthusiastic and often gets to help select the next keg. Venti’s opt for Oregon and North West brews but occasionally throw something different out there.

Dino Venti, owner of Venti Restaurants, will be speaking at this month’s Chamber Luncheon on September 17th. Don’t miss as he discusses the secret to his restaurants success in our local area. Chamber Luncheon is held at Dallas Retirement Village, and doors will open at 11:45 am. We hope to see you there.
