Dining etiquette requires one to use a soupspoon for gazpacho, a dinner fork for pork chops, and chopsticks when mimicking walruses. Wield an arsenal of utensils with today’s Groupon to Lulav. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of dinner fare.
- For $10, you get pumpkin-harvest soup and pumpkin bread for one to two people (a $20 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of late-night menu fare.<p>
Lulav’s chefs build a seasonal array of gourmet fork-tine targets at the warmly lit eatery, which pairs its walls with wine racks and local art. Over dinner, the dramatic filigree arms of tabletop candelabras embrace conversation and swat away bits of coq au vin patrons toss at each other when sharing the dish’s red-wine-braised chicken, borlotti beans, and pancetta ($26). To create the side dish of truffled gnocchi, epicurean experts craft each piece of pasta by hand before the potato pillows belly flop into tomato-basil fonduta cream sauce and bask in a drizzle of fresh Italian truffle oil ($8.95). An open flame grills the chanterelle pork’s center-cut medallions with tough questions before cuffing them in fennel next to the California date compote ($26).
Solo or dueling spoons searching for pumpkin soup delve into an actual pumpkin, which is hollowed out to make room for the fresh, seasonal gullet warmer. A side of pumpkin bread enchants taste buds and provides an alternate form of transportation by transforming into a savory carriage. From 10 p.m. until midnight, the late-night menu hushes nocturnal belly rumblings with its dips, salads, and crispy flatbread pizzas. The bacon- and pistachio-speckled Pluot Magnifico pizza blends sweet and salty more successfully than a chocolate-coated salt shaker with the flatbread’s fresh pluots and gorgonzola crumbles ($9). On Thursdays, all dishes are served with a side of live music.
