"Lulu inspires lingering..."

David Farley at New York Magazine had these lovely things to say about Lulu:

"Chef Eric Fleischer, late of Bobo, serves up affordable Euro-accented small plates and big-portioned entrées at this candlelit gastropub. Lulu inspires lingering, and the narrow dining room is flanked by .Lulu 235 Mulberry Streetdate-friendly two-person booths and a long bar where neighborhood regulars congregate for cocktails like watermelon chili (vodka, watermelon juice, hot chili flakes) and pints of Guinness. Fleischer’s food is eclectic and filling; A tennis-ball-size crab cake, studded with bits of jalapeño and pineapple, sits over light avocado purée, and a favored Roman street snack, risotto fritters, comes with delectably creamy interiors."

Another good review

Shecky's is known to love a wild party, so we're honored they understood the more lowkey, nonetheless exciting, vibe at Lulu with this fantastic review:

"Lulu': Don’t get turned off by the Vespas parked out front—this is not your typical trendy NoLita haunt. Charming and rustic, Lulu’ feels like a secret neighborhood retreat with refined but affordable
French-American food and refreshing cocktails. Wooden tables, a long bar, vintage photographs, Edison bulb lighting, and a retro soundtrack set a relaxing mood for the mostly downtown and Euro crowd. Nibble on chef Eric Fleischer’s menu of snacks like risotto fritters or roasted brussel sprouts, or dive into savory entrees like roasted duck or an Angus beef burger with a hint of anise. Mixologist Greg Seider’s fresh fruit cocktails, like the Tequila Mocking Bird (Partida tequila, pineapple, lime, cardamon, agave syrup, and Serrano chile) will set the tone for hours of sipping and watching the fashionable passersby."
