Omnivore - Gossip about Lupe

Residents oppose expansion plan

It's been reported here and there that Riccardo Ullio is expanding Lupe Taqueria into the Beleza space (which is closed for the present). Today,  I ran into a friend who lives in the building that houses the two spaces. He said that the residents have opposed the plan, as has the local Development Review Committee.

"It's not gonna happen," my friend said, adding that they have, on the other hand, agreed to Ullio's plan to provide outdoor dining. He also said that Ullio will likely reopen Beleza with a new menu.
