Closing for good…

Dear Friends, Family and Guests – It is with much sadness that we announce the permanent closure of Lio Restaurant.  We were unable to weather the pandemic without some rent relief, and with the decreasing temperatures and increasing Covid cases, can find no viable way forward.  We hope our food and wine brought some small moments of joy to you during these difficult times, a reminder of the simple pleasure of a shared meal with the hope for better times to come.


Starting today, 9/26, we will be commencing phase 2 of our blow-out wine sale.  All bottles are still 50% off our normal dine-in pricing — which puts us on par or below retail stores with great savings on larger format, higher end wines.  In addition, we have added volume discounts of 10-20% on top of this pricing if you spend $100 or more.  There are also specific bottles priced to move, buy one and get a second for 25% off.  This is a great opportunity to stock up on your favorites or build your wine cellar.  The entire list is now online, and you may order anytime, with pick-ups starting next weekend, Friday 10/2 and Saturday 10/3 between 3-5pm, as well as the following weekend, Fri 10/9 and Saturday 10/10.  If these times don’t work for you, please give us a call and we will try to accommodate you.  As this is a restaurant, we cannot sell wine without food, so there is a mandatory purchase of Pao de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Puffs) with every order.


Stay safe.  Stay healthy.  Eat well.
Cecile and Cara Stadler
