Lumber Shed at 301 Water Street, SE
Thanks to a reader for sending from Osteria Morini:
“The wait is almost over…
We are thrilled to be opening Osteria Morini at The Yards Waterfront on Tuesday, November 19th.
Osteria Morini at the Yards introduces Washington, D.C. to the soulful cuisine and convivial spirit of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. In Italian, “Osteria” means a please where the owner “hosts” guests. It is a relaxed place to be with family and friends.
We look forward to hosting you at our Osteria at the Yards and begin your journey to Emilia-Romagna.
For reservations, please call 202.484.0660
Morini’s menus offers a wide array of smaller plates and larger composed platters by Executive Chef, Matt Adler. Guests are encouraged to begin their meal with a variety of cured meats, crostini, antipasti and other small starters to share. White’s signature pasta offerings are served with a variety of traditional ragus and delicately stuffed pastas from Emilia-Romagna. Meats also have a starring role in the entrees, especially the Carne ai Ferri (simply grilled meats and spit roasts). The wine list includes affordable wine selections focusing on the north central regions of Liguria, Umbria, Tuscany, Southern Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna and Le Marche, with sparkling wines like prosecco and lambrusco strongly represented. Osteria Morini showcases an extensive selection of Italian aperitifs and digestifs as well as a signature Italian-inspired cocktail list created by Eben Freeman, Altamarea Group’s Director of Bar Operations.
The décor certainly has inspiration from the original Osteria Morini in Soho, New York but also refects the mood and location of the DC Yards development. The rustic and convivial ambience features high ceilings and exposes a fully open chef’s kitchen for guests to enjoy the theatre of their meal unfolding before their eyes. “
