Portuguese cuisine meets tapas-style in Chelsea newcomer Lupulo, the latest from George Mendes of Michelin-starred Aldea. Occupying the sprawling cornerstone space of the newly-revamped Eventi Hotel, our new favorite purveyor of Portuguese goodness boasts a robust menu of rich fare, from butterflied and charred organic piri piri chicken to octopus rice, red snapper crudo, and oh-so-much more. Pull up a seat at the U-shaped bar, the centrum of the rustic space, for front-row seats to the action in the semi-open kitchen, sipping a house cocktail or a tall brew from the hand-selected menu of beers on tap. Attaché Insider: walking in? Get here early before the crowd flows in. Or, make a reservation through your Attaché (we recommend the latter, naturally).
