Fans of chef Mona Leena are delighted to follow her career from fine dining chef to pandemic pop-up The Mana’eesh Lady to her stunning Palestinian-inspired California cuisine breakfast/lunch spot, Lulu, which just opened in August. Weekends (including Friday!) are when the food concept really shines, with an impressive mezze brunch spread that includes Leena’s famous house-made breads, deviled eggs with labneh-whipped yolks, and a butternut-miso mutabal (a play on the traditional tahini-smoked eggplant spread). Would it be OK to guess that the Californian Palestinian cuisine Chef Leena is creating might be called Cal-Pal one day?
How to order: Walk in Tuesday through Thursday, make reservations on Resy for Friday through Sunday, call 510-529-4300 for pickup Tuesday through Thursday only.
