Butchertown’s Lupo now serving lunch

Butchertown’s Italian restaurant, Lupo, invited fans on Facebook to fulfill their brunch cravings yesterday with temptations like Harissa Bloody Marys and their Guanciale and Egg pizza. This is a new direction for the pizza focused restaurant at 1540 Frankfort Ave as they near the one week anniversary of launching their new lunch menu on Tuesday, December 5.

A Lupo manager told Food & Dining, “This was our first week doing it, and it was a little slow starting. But yesterday was great, and today was pretty similar. We’re happy.”

The restaurant will be open for lunch Tuesday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Their dinner hours will still be 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. There are a few differences between their lunch menu (below) and their fall dinner menu, which is on their web site, but there are a variety of pizzas, pastas, appetizers and salads on both. Carryout is available.
