WELCOME TO LULU, located in the open-air courtyard of the Hammer Museum in Westwood, Los Angeles. 


Conceived with legendary chef and food activist Alice Waters and led by acclaimed chef, writer, and cookbook author David Tanis, Lulu is a shared celebration of good food that is good for the planet. Lulu is a restaurant committed to prioritizing sustainability through local, regenerative food and design. Our mission focuses on procuring food directly from small, nearby farms practicing regenerative organic agriculture, which results in wholesome, delicious food grown using methods that combat the climate crisis.

At lunch, Lulu offers a popular three-course $45 prix fixe menu as well as an à la carte selection of salads, soups, sandwiches, light lunch fare, coffee, tea, and desserts. For supper, Lulu offers an à la carte selection of small bites, appetizers, entrées, and desserts curated around the produce in season. Staying true to our ethos of “market cooking,” the menus change daily depending on what is the very best available from local farms. You’ll find Tanis at the farmers’ markets most mornings.

Our restaurant is named after a wise Provencal cook, Lulu Peyraud, whose cooking and hospitality at Domaine Tempier in Bandol, France has always inspired David and Alice.


We proudly source our ingredients from sustainable farms local to Southern California.

It's our on-going relationship with these farmers and the food they produce that gives

us the ability to prepare wholesome, delicious food while combatting the climate crisis.
