The Altamarea Group is excited to join the Upper East Side with its seventh Manhattan location, Ristorante Morini, bringing a contemporary and more upscale Morini restaurant to the neighborhood. Located on Madison Avenue, the sleek interiors exude an understated elegance with a 130-seat upstairs dining room adorned with soft beige and caramel tones magnified by shapely FLOS chandeliers. Downstairs, Ristorante Morini showcases a vibrant bar and an additional 35 seats. Like Osteria Morini in SoHo, Ristorante Morini is a place to meet family, friends and new acquaintances in a convivial atmosphere.<br><br> <br><br>RISTORANTE offers pan-Italian regional cuisine with a menu that covers various seasonal specialties, both inland and coastal. And the wine program complements the depth and breadth of the menu with a large emphasis on Italian wine with various selections from Europe and America.
