Eating DC: Lupo Verde

Located in the busy 14th Street Corridor, Lupo Verde is the perfect spot for modern, authentic Southern Italian food.  The restaurant is a converted brownstone house with two bars (one on each floor) and a fairy light covered sidewalk terrace.  The location is romantic and hip, and not to mention the food is delicious.
Lupo Verde is the perfect date spot for some charcuterie and Lambrusco or a full on meal.  The menu includes a variety of items such as an extensive charcuterie and cheese selection, salads, starters, hearty pasta and pizzas and more.
For my meal there, we tried a bit of everything (although I will definitely be back to taste the pasta).  To start, we got a charcuterie board of speck, duck salame, and soppressata.  The board was beautiful- complete with a scribbled on butcher paper, fruit, honey and walnut olive bread.  
We also got the burrata which came with sweet candied cherry tomatoes, smoked eggplant mousse, peppery rocket, onion ash and garlic bread.
For our main course, we decided to go with a pizza (The Sandra Zappa) that came with chili, spicy sausage, and cheese as well as the fried artichoke that came with a parsley heavy salsa verde.  Both were delicious.

Overall the food and atmosphere are really great at Lupo Verde.  I can’t wait to go back and try more things as well as check out their brunch!
