Well, this would explain the pizza tweets. A few industry pals tell Grub Street that Michael White is just “a few months” away from opening his first pizzeria. “It’s going to be in the East Village, around 10th Street,” assures one inside source. This, after reps recently denied any pizza-related matter entering Osteria Morini, adding, “Michael just likes to eat pizza — specifically pizza with meatballs.” No word from Team White on the latest scoop, though, which sounds delizioso.
