Capo opens tonight in South Boston, an employee at sister restaurant Lincoln Tavern confirms. The restaurant has been keeping very quiet on social media with private Instagram (update: now public) and Twitter accounts and the deletion of a previously created Facebook page (update: it's back), but a few pieces of social media evidence indicated that friends and family dined there over the weekend.
The restaurant will feature rustic Italian fare at 443 W. Broadway, next door to Lincoln Tavern and down the street from Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar, its big siblings.
"Capo" is Italian for "boss." On the beverage side, Kevin Mabry is chief of the bar program, while chef Tony Susi — formerly of Sage and the W Hotel in Union Square in NYC — is leading the charge in the kitchen.
Photos posted on social media from the Capo friends and family event indicate the restaurant will serve antipasti like olives and bruschetta, along with house-made pastas, like spaghetti pomodoro and bucatini. There's also a cioppino. Stay tuned for hours and more details. The website is expected to launch shortly, and the menu will be posted there.
UPDATE: Doors officially open at 5 p.m. tonight, according to an Instagram post from Lincoln. Here's a peek inside and a look at a few dishes — chicken parm, clams, and meatballs. Keep scrolling to see the full menu:
