From a press release:
“Osteria Morini is now open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The new Italian restaurant by award winning Chef Michael White, which opened last month in the Capital Riverfront neighborhood, offers guests a selection of appetizers, salads, pastas and panini as well as two prix-fixe options from which to choose.
The One-Course Lunch, priced at $19 per person, comes with a choice of panino served with the guest’s choice of either tortellini in brodo or fennel and apple salad. The $25 per person Two-Course Lunch gives guests a choice of any pasta and a choice of either an antipasti to start or dolci to finish. Tax and gratuity are not included.
Executive Chef Matt Adler encourages guests to begin a la carte selections with a variety of cured meats, crostini, antipasti and other small starters to share, or dive straight into the traditional housemade pastas from the country’s north central region. Substantial salads, including an Adriatic style seafood salad and the Guanciale, with bitter greens, caramelized onion and poached egg mingle with entrées such as a Fritatta with mortadella, pecorino and arugula and the Pollo Arrosto, a roasted half chicken served with young Romaine and cacio e pepe. All lunch pastas, panini and entrees are priced between $12 and $23.
Osteria Morini also debuts its “7 for $7” happy hour, offering guests a rotating list of seven items for $7 from 4-7 p.m. Monday through Friday in the bar and lounge. Snacks such as Arancini with pomodoro and parmigiano fonduta, Mortadella sliders and Crispy ravioli with bolognese will be served to complement a selection of happy hour cocktails, wines and beers.”
