Chef Michael White reveals to Frank Bruni that he's calling his upcoming Soho trattoria Osteria Morini. The name is an homage to Gianluigi Morini, the owner and founder of the restaurant San Domenico in Imola, Italy. The new projected opening is July.
The Brunz also confirms yesterday's news that White and his partner Chris Cannon are taking over food operations at the Setai, the new condo/hotel mashup in Midtown, but hears that the deal isn't done yet.
