Do you sometimes get a case of the Mondays? I can tell you how to turn that around immediately. For the second year now, Chef Michael White's Osteria Morini in Navy Yard is offering "Morini Mondays" which means all pasta offerings are $10 all night long.
Last night I went to the first Morini Monday of the season with friends, and it won't be the last. This promotion lasts through March 28, 2016 so there is definitely still time to make a date with friends and snag a reservation. Executive Chef Matt Adler is including some of the classic pastas on the menu such as the cappelletti with melted butter and prosciutto, but he's also added others such as the lumache with housemade burrata, pomodoro and basil (both pictured above.) Each pasta dish is better than the last, and you are bound to leave full, happy, and without making a huge dent in your wallet. To top off the evening, do not miss Executive Pastry Chef Alex Levin's divine desserts.
Highlights were the special chocolate brioche bread pudding, the praline mousse cake, and the cinnamon rice pudding. If this isn't the best way to end a Monday, I don't know what is. Osteria Morini is located at 301 Water Street SE. Morini Mondays runs from November 2nd through March 28th.
