Casa Mono in New York Posted September 20, 2006 I eat at Lupa regularly. My favorite is the orechiette special with the pork sausage and whatever greens they are using that night. The braised escarole is the best in town. I always sit at the bar and receive excellent, friendly service there. Sometimes it can take a while to be seated though, but that is a factor of the crowd of people waiting to be served - not the actual service.
