The official debut of Lo Spiedo is set for Monday, October 27. Marc Vetri's Navy Yard project has had its debut nudged back a number of times by now, but this time, it's real — they're planning preview parties and everything.
Over the past few weeks, as construction has progressed, the Vetri family has been busy posting a number of hints and teases: staff training, menu testing, jealousy-inducing equipment deliveries, and hmm, did we ever mention the flooring?
The casual bar and restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner, with a menu built around rotisserie and grilled meats. Zagat got a preview of the ambitious bar program last month, which is worth a look.
Lo Spiedo, Building 500 at the Navy Yard, 4501 S. Broad St., opening October 27.
