Relaxed bistro with high ambitions
Has Bistro Lupa cracked the code? Yes, probably. Brett Lavender, executive chef at ARK, also manages the sister restaurant Bistro Lupa. The ethos and practices of the two are similar; both offer total plant-based, seasonal menus with quality ingredients from carefully selected producers. The main differences between them lie in the atmosphere and the price tag. Bistro Lupa offers a more relaxed environment featuring family-style dining with dishes to share at a lower price. In Bistro Lupa’s case, it’s also about giving the ingredient the greatest possible attention. This is a driven, focused — yet laid-back — gastronomy that makes guests think an extra time.
