Alba Osteria Hoping to Open by the end of the Month in Mt. Vernon Square

425 I Street, NW from early November

“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard anything more about Alba Osteria? They were supposed to open today [Dec. 15] according to their press release … and they’re certainly close to being ready, with chairs, table settings, etc in place. They clearly didn’t actually open today though.”

In a call to Alba Osteria – they say they are hoping to open by December 30th.

For those not familiar we previously learned:

“The 226-seat restaurant, including a 63-seat outdoor seasonal patio, will enjoy authentic Italian cuisine reflective of the Piedmonte region of Italy, Executive Chef Roberto Donna’s homeland. Amy Brandwein has been tapped as chef de cuisine of Alba Osteria, overseeing the daily culinary operations.

Alba, Italy is situated between the region’s wine country and agricultural center, and food here is a classic representative of Piemonte’s cuisine. Donna’s menu at Alba Osteria will offer a selection of salumi and formaggi, antipasti, house-made pastas (small and large portions), and Neapolitan pizza. Daily specials will be “Italian sized” portions, designed to be ordered and shared for the table in a Piemontese fashion. Donna’s tempting choices will be priced from $5 to $19.”
