If you know me, then you know how much I love a multi-course sit-down dinner. I'm just a sucker for anything that is plated to perfection. So when we were invited by Lulu's for a little get-together, we just couldn't say no. I don't even know where to start with describing which of the dishes were my favorite - so I'll let the photos guide me.
I'm normally not a huge fan of anything involving foam - I'm a total fusion-snob, the traditional girl I like to claim I am. But the seared scallops were my favorite. The foam just added a bit of zest without disrupting the flavor of the scallop. I wouldn't mind having some of those right now actually.
My favorite at Lulu's has always been the steaks. This one didn't disappoint - love my steak with a bit of fat on it - that's where all the flavor is. And being the dessert fiend I am.. the entire pallet was perfect, and normally I am not much of a peanut-butter kinda gal, but take it from me - the PB&J bomb was.. well, BOMB.
Here's the full menu - but before I exit this post, can I just say - I AM NOW STARVING.
Thank you for your hospitality, Lulu!
