Lupa Last Night

BHAppeal | | Aug 17, 2006 04:28 PM

Scored a walk in for three at Lupa last night right at 6PM. They were fully booked, but so long as we were gone by 8 PM no problem. Started with the a plate of house cured salumi, some buffala mozzarella with three types of heirloom tomatos and a bowl of olives. All were delicious, though the mozzarella was a bit skimpy. Ricotta Gnocchi with sausage and pomodoro sauce and the daily special of Pork Arista -- tenderloin grilled with herb crust and fennel -- were excellent. Buttermilk Panna Cotta was fabulous. Great wine by the glass choices -- an excellent dry Lambrusco and a very full red from the Piedmonte. Homemade lemonade was good too -- not too sweet, not too sour. Service was timely, but not hurried. A very solid dinner at a very reasonable price -- Dinner for three with three starters, three main courses and three desserts, plus three glasses of wine (generous pours too) and three lemonades -- $138, not including tip.
