Let's get the bad news out of the way first: Lupo Verde's opening has been pushed back again, this time until February 20. But the good news is that you wouldn't think that by looking at the nearly completed restaurant. Med Lahlou and Antonio Matarazzo are the men behind the multi-level Italian restaurant and speciality market coming soon to 14th Street.
The restaurant's menu is being overseen by chef Orlando Amaro, with Domenico Apollaro working as chef de cuisine. Expect homemade charcuterie, breads, antipasti, pizzas, pastas, whole fish and meats. About 70 percent of the menu will be available for purchase to go, particularly the cheeses (there is a separate cheese counter and bar within the restaurant).
There are 100 seats at Lupo Verde. The restaurant has marble bars, Italian tiling, high ceilings, bi9g windows and a fireplace. Lisa Halloran of Sculptures of Space designed the restaurant.
