Last week I really needed a change of scenery and was lucky enough that one of my good friends had a day off in the
middle of the week, so we decided to meet up in Palm Springs, CA. While there he really wanted to try out the restaurant LuLu, which I never really had a desire to try.
Always seemed so packed and bright that I never really thought about going, however I am always up for something different, so we headed out of our hotel one night and walked the couple blocks to the front doors. Yes, it was very busy, but since we didn’t really care if we sat outside or not we were able to get a table for two right away.
The style is very New Yorkish, which to me is very bright and white, however had also an artsy flare. I mean we are in Downtown Palm Springs right? Old style big crystal chandeliers hanging wrapped around with cloth or something, which was very different. The bar is quite large and at the time they had the baseball world series playing so it was packed with fans. Go Dodgers. (They lost)
Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. We ordered up some wine and he explained the menu. A couple great deals if you go with the 3 or 4 choice menu. 3 choices for $20 was what my friend went with and me? Well I just went with an appetizer and a salad.
My appetizer was lightly fried zucchini and salad was the pear salad. Both were very tasty, however I guess I do prefer my zucchini a little more fried, so it has some crunch.
My friend ordered the Ahi Tuna wanton tostada and entrée was the lamb, which must of been delicious as he ate it all up with not much speaking, which if you knew him he never shuts up. lol
All in all I am glad he dragged me into LuLu. We will definitely be back and try some other goodies on the menu. There is A lot to choose from. The prices are great and the place is lively. Next time however we will try and score the patio and enjoy the wonderful evening weather that Palm Springs has to offer.
