The first tenant for the Lumber Shed building at the Yards Park has just been announced by Forest City: the Italian restaurant Osteria Morini, by New York City chef Michael White. It will be a 4,250-sq-ft space, and is expected to open in the summer of 2013.
Osteria Morini currently has two locations, in Soho and Bernardsville, New Jersey, and is described in Forest City's press release as a "mid-priced, casual restaurant with lunch and dinner menus featuring innovative pasta dishes, grilled meats, fish and regional specialties."
It is part of the Altamarea Group, which also includes Marea, Ai Fiori, Due Mari, Al Molo, and the soon-to-be-opened Nicoletta. Chef White is a James Beard nominee and was named best new chef by Esquire magazine in 2002.
The Lumber Shed is one of the Yards Park's planned retail pavilions, which will also (temporarily) house Forest City's offices on the second floor. The restaurant will be located on the southeast corner of the building (seen at right), facing the Anacostia River and the Navy Yard, and will have outdoor seating on the east and south sides. With this announcement and Forest City's occupancy, the building is 60 percent leased, with the unleased space all on the ground floor for additional retail/restaurants.
This building is just to the south of the Foundry Lofts that opened in late 2011, and one block south of the Boilermaker Shop, where six restaurants will be opening over the next year or so. All three buildings are "adaptive reuse" projects of structures from the site's old days as part of the Navy Yard.
UPDATE: A bit of additional detail on the venture from Washingtonian's Best Bites blog. And here's the full press release.

I just checked it out the menu for Osteria Morini link and there are a lots of pasta.

awesome. I've read good stuff about him. If this is legit, it'll be an Italian place where they don't do the American "overcook the pasta and drown it in chunky sweetened sauce" thing. I might not even have to ask for the pasta al dente.

My reaction? Joygasm.

what a surprise! wow, this is a great "get" for our neighborhood! IMHO forest city keeps lining up amazing tenants at the Yards. this time next year, we won't know what to do with ourselves with all of the new dining options. hopefully, forest city is also talking to Landmark Cinemas.


Eric says: (2/16/12 12:12 AM)
I emailed Landmark Cinemas about building their theater in near SE instead of Ward 7/8, and I was told it would be passed on to the VP of development. For what it's worth.


Robert says: (2/16/12 4:47 PM)
I did the same. Hopefully enough people will petition for it.
