WASHINGTON, DC. - Big-name New York restaurateurs chef Michael White and Ahmass Fakahany aren’t finished opening restaurants in DC. It’s been five years since the Altamarea Group owners debuted their first Washington eatery, Osteria Morini, in Navy Yard. Now they’re ramping up again for new project in Mt. Vernon Triangle: Nicoletta Italian Kitchen, a pizza and pasta-centric joint slated to open by late fall.  

“We take our time,” says White. “Opening restaurants is one thing, but having the longevity and keeping them flourishing is another.”

Altamarea’s collection of NYC Italian restaurants varies widely in price and vibe, from luxe seafood spot Marea to East Village pizzeria Nicoletta. The new DC outpost will land somewhere in the middle. Though it takes its name from the pie shop, Nicoletta Italian Kitchen is a new venture that involves more than just pizza (though there’ll be plenty of that, too). White says the idea is to channel an Italian piazza where people can gather and graze.
