Osteria Morini Restaurant Review

: Chef Michael White, a partner at restaurants Marea and Ai Fiori, set out to bring a "real" osteria to New York and he has succeeded. Osteria Morini is clearly run by a very professional team, but it still maintains the personable feel of a local restaurant. The menu features the venerated cuisine of Emilia-Romagna, with rustic fare such as farro and bean soup with porcini mushrooms and sage to start. Follow up a plate of salumi with a traditional pasta such as creste loaded with mussels, scallops and shrimp, or skewers of sweetbreads and Hampshire pork with guanciale, peppers, onions and sage. Desserts range from a light panna cotta with strawberry marmalade and poached orange segments to the more decadent, like the chocolate peanut butter bar with Valrhona ganache and buttermilk gelato.
