From the founder of La Tavola, the old world Italian restaurant, comes a brand new venture sure to take Upper Arlington and the rest of the city by storm. Lupo on Arlington is a tapas bar with influences from Spain, Italy, and Portugal, slated to open in early April.
The owner and chef, Rick Lopez will be brining a menu full of pastas, seafood (cough cough oyster bar cough), and more ranging from full plates to bite-sized portions. The foods will pair with hand-picked wines, craft cocktails, or beer chosen specifically for Lupo.
“Our work is cooking very close to the ground. Handmade old-world dishes, fresh ingredients, and creative flavors – matched with unique and unusual farm wines hand-picked to match” –Lupo website
The aesthetic of the restaurant will stay true to Lopez’s appreciation for the old world with vintage decor and custom pieces courtesy of CCAD students.
Lupo will be open to the public in early April. It’s located at 2124 Arlington Ave.
