Must try: Salt Cod & Potato crostini, Zuppa Funghi
Osteria Morini is Michael White’s homage to both his mentor Gianluigi Morini and cuisine of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.
An Osteria in Italy is a place that serves wine and simple food. Michael White’s has tried to recreate an Italian farmhouse feel at Morini, with rustic interiors that are replete with wooden rafters, which were imported from an actual farmhouse in Italy.
The food matches the mood. White serves some superb pastas and amazing prosciutto. The cod-fish crostini was really good too. The dessert falls a little flat but the service is super friendly and casual.
At Osteria Morini, Michael White has done a wonderful job in bringing a piece of Italy to New York City.
