In an old brick townhouse on 14th Street, Lupo Verde is a solid Italian option for most occasions. The chandeliers and long drapes are romantic enough for date night, and there’s enough space and a few round tables that work for a group dinner. There’s also a bar where you could post up solo. The pastas, pizzas, and charcuterie boards are all reliable, and they do brunch on the weekends as well.
