“Lulu’s Local Eatery plates colorful vegan dishes that highlight the flavors and textures of fresh produce in fun ways. The sushi bowl, for example, pairs watermelon “sashimi” with sushi rice, avocado, cucumber, radish, green onions, pickled ginger, wasabi and spicy house mayo. Opened by Lauren Loomis and Robert Tucker in 2014, Lulu’s recently expanded to include an upstairs ping-pong bar serving creative late-night eats.”
