|Make your way to Meribo|
New Covington restaurant’s eclectic menu weds Italy to the South
Branding itself “Modern Italian Fare with Southern Flair,” the new restaurant Meribo is getting lots of attention at the north end of Lee Lane in downtown Covington. Natural light floods the bright, freshened-up space offering an eclectic menu of things its young-but-seasoned owners like to eat: wagyu beef carpaccio; pastas like wild boar raviolo and spaghetti carbonara; porchetta and short ribs; and wood-fired fare including fresh fish and fab pizza. Throw in craft cocktails, an Italian-centric wine list (many by the glass) and friendly staff. Serving lunch and dinner, Meribo has a late-night weekend menu, too.
