Lunch at Osteria Morini Feels Like a Vacation

I took the Acela back to DC this morning and was filled with a longing to leap off and escape to the Eastern Shore for the day. Since that wasn't possible, I shifted my city lunch meeting to Osteria Morini so that I could at least sit in the sunshine by the river.

It was so relaxing and the food so fantastic, it made me feel like I was on vacation... Even if I had to be back in the office by 2pm.

There's a $25 two course lunch pairing, so I enjoyed the decadent panzanella salad followed by a pipette with zucchini ribbons and seasonal vegetables.

I think I may have even picked up a tan.

Osteria Morini is located at 301 Water Street SE on the Anacostia River in the trendy Yards section of Southeast Washington, DC.

PS. Ice Cream Jubilee is opening right around the corner. I'm envisioning enjoying cup of her PB&J or Dark & Stormy ice cream while lazing by this adorable wading pool.
