THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lulu Restaurant Review

: Helmed in the kitchen by former Bobo sous chef Eric Fleischer, this NoLIta gastropub-like eatery is as much a destination for its low-lit aesthetics, its long bar and inventive cocktail list as its French-influenced cuisine. A long list of small plates is highlighted by the jalapeño-laced crab cake (wading in a pool of avocado purée); the salad of beets, pistachios, chèvre and wild arugula; and a smooth foie gras torchon. Entrées are substantial and are presented in a refreshingly no-frills manner: a large bowl of pasta puttanesca satisfies, but the sleeper hit of an ingredient is chili flakes which make for a surprising kick. The plus-size piece of Scottish salmon manages to be flaky and juicy while the steak frites are done just right (slightly charred on the outside and red on the inside). European beers are on tap and the wine list mostly sticks to France.
