hungry prof Posted March 26, 2010 Share Posted March 26, 2010 New Turkish-influenced siblings coming to Georgetown. Apparently, Morso Express will open tomorrow followed by the more formal Morso in April. Chef Ed Witt's bio from his Facebook page sounds reasonably interesting: "With an emphasis on locally-sourced, farm-fresh ingredients and a modern approach to classic American fare, Witt (Varietal, Il Buco) and his style of cooking are a true representation of what the chef himself stands for: creative, out-of-the-box, and unfussy. . .Witt’s journey to Morso began at the Culinary Institute of America and led directly to San Francisco’s famed Rubicon, where he worked under Tracy Des Jardins. Witt’s Rubicon stint led to two additional years in San Francisco – first at Jardinière and later at mc². In 1998, Witt returned to New York City as part of the reopening team at Restaurant Daniel before earning himself a position as chef de cuisine at Nicole’s on the Upper East Side. In search of new adventures and greater challenges, Witt moved on to become the executive chef at Il Buco and later the short-lived, but highly-ambitious Varietal. After spending a month traveling and eating in Turkey, Ed looks forthcoming [sic] opening of Morso." H/t: Washington Business Journal via the Georgetown Voice.
