Expect a semi open kitchen.

George Mendes is rocking out to Led Zeppelin and hanging out with the construction crew at his upcoming rustic Portuguese restaurant Lupulo (it means hops in Portuguese). Here's a glimpse at the progress inside the corner spot:

The Aldea chef shares a few interior details, like a semi-open kitchen with some killer cobalt tile:

Note that Lupolo now has its very own Instagram account, so it should be easy to keep an eye on progress. At last report, the restaurant should open by March.
