Celebrated New York chef Michael White will be opening an outpost of his rustic Italian-style Soho eatery Osteria Morini at The Yards near Nationals Park. Eater NY and Eater DC offer some details. Having dined at Convivo and Alto, back when White was cooking at those places, Y&H will say this is pretty exciting news for D.C. White’s planned eatery is the latest in a string of food and beverage projects to join the massive riverside development, which notably includes a forthcoming craft brewery from ChurchKey operator Neighborhood Restaurant Group. Target opening date for White’s place: summer 2013.
