Michael Roper, owner of the popular Hopleaf bar and restaurant in Edgewater, has financing in place to purchase the space next door – the former La Donna Restaurant. He plans to open a 90 seat 2 story bistro by year’s end, with Mediterranean cuisine and 20 microbrews.
Don’t look for this to be the ‘best of Hopleaf’,though, he warns in yesterday’s Crain’s article. This will be an altogether different bistro.
As a Hopleaf fan, I can’t wait to see what Mr. Roper brings us next!
