Restaurant LuLu Restaurant Review

: Huge brick ovens and a rotisserie, complete with churning and roasting chicken, duck and lamb, anchor the cavernous main dining room and provide warm light and rich smells across the bustling space. Since the starters and small plates are the real stars of the menu, and because one length of the main room and a good size side room are devoted to a bar area, many find LuLu's a great place to nosh and drink after work. A fritto misto of artichokes, paper-thin circles of lemon and fennel and a choose-your-own antipasti plate rate high on the taste scale. Wood oven-roasted mussels, served in an iron skillet, is a signature dish. Pizzas hail from the wood oven, gleaning a crisp but toothsome crust topped with wild mushrooms, Fontina and thyme. Nightly rotisserie specials like crisp-skinned chicken scented with herbs are served family-style. Knowledgeable staff sometimes gets harried, but they have the best intentions and some great tips for the wine list.
