Chef Anthony Lombardo, who just weeks ago left his post at the celebrated Bacco Ristorante in Southfield, is opening his own Roman pasta-focused restaurant in Midtown in early 2018. Lombardo tells Eater the eatery will be called SheWolf Pastificio & Bar and will open on the ground level of the new The Selden development at 438 Selden next to Honest John’s.

Lombardo describes the menu as contemporary Roman cuisine. He spent three weeks in Rome this summer exploring the cosmopolitan city’s working-class pastificios (or little pasta factories) for inspiration for the new eatery. What he’ll bring to SheWolf will include what he calls the “Big 3” in Roman pasta — carbona, amatriciana, and cacio e pepe — made fresh using flour milled on-site in a room enclosed in glass where diners can witness the process first-hand.
