Decades after opening Chez Panisse, Alice Waters (a.k.a. the “mother of farm-to-table”) opened this new restaurant in Westwood. Lulu is an outdoor-only spot serving seasonal California cuisine in the courtyard of The Hammer Museum. Open only for lunch (for now), Lulu has an approachable a la carte menu full of fresh focaccia sandwiches, vegetable soups, and rainbow-colored salads, but the restaurant also offers a three-course prix-fixe option that changes every day. Nothing on the food menu here blew our mind, but Lulu’s simple dishes are made with top-notch local ingredients that’ll make you feel like a slightly healthier version of your former self. We definitely recommend going the pre-fixe route and ordering a slice of their incredible key lime pie topped with lime zest to end your luxuriously long afternoon meal. We’ll be checking back in soon as the restaurant continues to find itself.
