Lupa, Foreman Wolf's newest restaurant, opens in Columbia in former Petit Louis space

The Foreman Wolf Restaurant Group has debuted its newest restaurant, a Roman trattoria called Lupa, replacing Petit Louis Bistro in Columbia.

After four years in business, Petit Louis closed about a month ago to prepare for Lupa’s opening at 10215 Wincopin Circle. The new restaurant, whose name means “she-wolf” in Italian, has been updated with a warm color palette, new iron light fixtures and custom farm tables for family-style dining.

James Lewandowski, who also oversees Cinghiale’s kitchen in Harbor East, will serve as Lupa’s executive chef. His menu includes shareable antipasti, Roman-style focaccia pizza, paninis and fresh pastas. Lupa will also offer 20 gelatos and sorbettos, Italian baked goods and coffee from a gelateria space within the restaurant.

The wine list features Central Italian, American and French labels, with 20 wines by the glass.

The original Petit Louis Bistro in Roland Park remains open. Foreman Wolf also owns restaurants including Charleston, Johnny’s and Bar Vasquez.
