All is not lost my Cleveland Park cousins – while Ripple was a big loss – Al Volo to the rescue!! I stopped by on Saturday and was told they soft opened Friday night (early word on the Cleveland Park listserve is that they are understandably working out a few kinks in service but the food was delicious and the folks were incredibly friendly, and they were kid friendly too.) I personally can confirm the kindness of the people there. It’s very easy to tell when folks are genuinely nice and I’m happy to say that was evident here. Also the space really looks terrific:
Al Volo’s current hours are 5-10pm Sunday to Thursday and 5pm to midnight Friday and Saturday. In about a month they’ll be opening up for brunch and lunch as well as a to-go pasta bar. Updates when that happens, in the meantime check out lots more photos after the jump.
They even have ridiculously awesome album covers:
and soon they’ll have a to go pasta bar:
