I screwed up.
A reliable source told me yesterday evening that Vespa — the popular Italian and Mediterranean restaurant that has helped revitalize the National Hall neighborhood — was closed.
I called. I got a recording. It said the restaurant was closed Monday and Tuesday. But this was Wednesday.
I posted a story.
Vespa — I learned quickly — is quite open. I took down the story.
But damage had been done. Owner Bobby Werhane — one of the real good guys — fielded calls from guests who’d booked dinner and holiday events. He and his staff reassured everyone that they are indeed open for business.
My too-hasty post may have impacted not only all of Vespa’s many fans, but its over 40 employees.
So, to repeat: Vespa is alive and well.
Go there. Eat there.
Tell Bobby I sent you.
