Lulu Bistrot culinary philosophy is refreshingly uncomplicated – to serve French food that is not just delicious but thoughtfully prepared with no fuss.
The interior design is an ode to both New York’s brasserie culture and the elegance of modern French Style, with creative energy and relaxed atmosphere, it manages to feel old school and contemporary, refined and rowdy at once. The space is airy with an open kitchen, cozy fabric banquettes, marble tables and bar-to-ceiling shelves stacked neatly with liquor and fine bottles of wine.
