Omnivore - Lupe and Beleza closed

Riccardo Ullio's MIdtown ventures shut their doors permanently over the weekend.

Tomorrow's News Today is reporting that both Lupe and Beleza closed over the weekend.

I had heard a rumor last week that the restaurants would close by the end of the month, but owner Riccardo Ullio asked me not to report on the situation, saying he was in the midst of "some very sensitive negotiations." I guess the negotiations didn't go so well.
