Lupo Verde Osteria Announces Nightly Specials, Including Family Supper Sundays & Happy Mondays

Lahlou Restaurant Group’s new rustic Italian concept, Lupo Verde Osteria, located in the residential Palisades area of Washington, DC at 4814 MacArthur Blvd, NW, is pleased to announce two new nightly specials that are easy on the wallet and perfect for enjoying with family and friends. Lupo Verde Osteria kicks off the week of Italian-inspired fun with Family Sundays, followed by Happy Mondays, which are available in addition to the restaurant’s weeknight L’Aperitivo menu. Both specials are available in the bar and main dining room beginning at 5 PM while the L’Aperitivo menu is available from 4:30 PM to 6 PM exclusively at the bar.

Family Sundays provides the perfect opportunity close the week with a “Sunday Supper” menu, which offers guests a rotating list of small plates, house-made pastas, a whole roasted fish and seasonal desserts, each served family-style. Prepared by Executive Chef Todd Sprik, the menu begins with a choice of appetizer to share. Menu standouts include the Lupo with hydroponic mixed lettuce, pickled mushrooms, red onion, toasted hazelnuts and parmesan; Rucola with arugula, radicchio, English peas, goat cheese, mint and lemon dressing, or Carciofi alla Giudia, fried artichokes with bagna cauda sauce. Next, families can select their featured pasta or entrée for the table. Highlights include the Cacio e Pepe, homemade tonnarelli, cacio di Roma, toasted black pepper and pecorino romano; Gemelli, homemade gemelli pasta with Neapolitan ragú, pine nuts and basil as well as the Fish of the Day with sautéed artichoke and salsa verde. To complete the meal on a sweet note, the table of guests will enjoy Bomboloni, Italian doughnuts with chocolate-hazelnut spread or seasonal Gelati & Sorbetti, which are also served family-style. The Family Sundays menu is priced at $35 per person for adults and $10 for children six years of age through 12 years of age (beverages, tax and gratuity not included.)

To kick off the work week, Lupo Verde Osteria is offering Happy Mondays, featuring the same three-course prix fixe menu available on Family Sundays, but for this experience, dishes are presented as small, individual portions. Additionally, guests can add a glass of wine from the restaurant’s boutique Italian wines by the glass list for a discounted $10 per person. This offering is exclusive to those wines regularly priced up to $19 a glass. Standouts include the San Salvatore Aglianico 2017; Cappuccina Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, and Impero Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2016.

Furthermore, an L’Aperitivo menu featuring authentic, rustic, Italian fare with three small plate antipasti dishes, priced at $7 each, is also available Monday through Friday, from 4:30 PM to 6 PM exclusively at the bar. Guests can enjoy Bruschetta with fresh tomato, lemon and parsley; Anchovies, as well as Carciofo, fried artichokes.
