-Acclaimed chef Ed Witt parted ways with Georgetown’s Morso restaurant today, according to Hisaoka Communications’ Kate Gibbs. Known for its offbeat eastern Mediterranean cuisine, Morso had just barely opened up its principal dining room in late May before Witt’s announcement was made. Gibbs blamed his departure on “creative differences” with the restaurant’s ownership. He is expected to stay in the D.C. area.
Morso Express, the restaurant’s next-door take-out wing, will remain open, but the formal dining room will be closed until a new executive chef is hired. We’ll be patiently waiting.
