Thanks to a small tidbit on the notice of a liquor license application by Osteria Morini for its coming location in the Lumber Shed at the Yards Park, I can pass along that Morini's chef Michael White will also be bringing his Nicoletta pizza/pasta carryout and delivery operation to one of the small retail spaces built into the park's overlook, on the boardwalk near the pedestrian bridge.
Though the boardwalk retail spaces have been envisioned as housing "seasonal" offerings, Nicoletta will be a year-round tenant. The space Nicoletta will occupy is about 250 square feet, so it will have no interior seating, but it will have outdoor seating in the warm months.
Nicoletta is expected to open a few months after Morini, which is still targeting a late summer debut. So, it could be by late fall or by the end of the year, while keeping in mind that restaurant target dates are often a bit fluid.
Nicoletta NYC's web site includes the menu, if you want to start preparing your taste buds well in advance.
As for additional Morini information via the liquor license application, the space, in the southeast corner of the Lumber Shed, is described as a "full service, fine dining restaurant specializing in authentic Italian food" will have an interior seating capacity for 165 and two outdoor seating spaces/"summer gardens" totalling 136 spaces, though that's probably for both Morini and Nicoletta. It also says there will be background music, "and occasional live music and/or DJ will be provided."
There's no web site for Osteria Morini's DC location yet, but the sites for the Soho and New Jersey locations, as well as those for White's other restaurants, may provide some information if you're, ahem, hungry for it.
And if you're wanting to keep up on the neighborhood's new and pending food options, here's the map.

Nice but still a weird spot for a year round business but hey I'll take it.

BTW - off post - sure you saw the article that mentioned Bluejacket could be an August opening?

Looks exciting and delicious. But those pizzas better be huge for for $17!


JD says: (5/13/13 1:45 PM)
On both of these places, it will be interesting when they open to compare the prices for NYC locations and DC locations.


conngs0 says: (5/13/13 2:02 PM)
Great addition! I think a walk-up and/or takeout pizza place will definitely be popular in the neighborhood. And assuming the size is reasonable, as Eric mentioned, I don't think they'd have to lower the prices a heck of a lot to compete with We the Pizza, right?


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (5/13/13 2:08 PM)
$17 pizza??..that's probably New York city price. They will probably adjust the price to DC price which is $15. They have 10" pizza for $10 and I am thinking that $17 pizza must be for extra large.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (5/13/13 2:10 PM)
It is a perfect addition to the neighborhood. Isn't 250 square feet small though?


JD says: (5/13/13 2:12 PM)
Since it's just carryout/delivery (as I said in the post), you don't need a lot of space. Outdoor seating in the warm months.


Skeptical says: (5/13/13 2:13 PM)
I give this place 10 months tops.


JD says: (5/13/13 2:29 PM)
Nando's saying July/August, according to WBJ: link


Eric says: (5/13/13 4:15 PM)
Weird location. I mean, I don't see that many people at Kruba as it is (which I blame on location), but even further out, especially winter months?

I do hope they do well!


Eric says: (5/13/13 4:17 PM)
I imagine the leasing cost for 250 square ft is not expensive at all, though. Bluejacket is going to be, what 8000? And Kruba and GB are both 3-4,000?


JD says: (5/13/13 4:19 PM)
Don't forget that it's basically a pizza carryout and delivery service. How many folks in the neighborhood will put that phone number right on their fridge?

And with a space that small, they probably aren't paying a fortune in rent.

Also, being part of the Morini empire, they will probably have a bit of a financial cushion that other places won't.

Speaking of Kruba, they've applied for a public space permit for outdoor seating. That should help get people who are heading to/from Yards Park to recognize there's a restaurant there.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (5/13/13 5:13 PM)
Doesn't is matter where Pizza hut or other Pizza joint is located? If their Lasagna is a large size and reasonably priced - I will call for a delivery or pick up.


The Hoff says: (5/13/13 10:48 PM)
Have you tried the pizza at Justin's?


JD says: (5/13/13 10:51 PM)
**warning lights flashing**


MJM says: (5/14/13 9:28 AM)
Wait, what! Nandos is Jul/Aug. Imagine that... :)
