Lulu Kitchen and Bar knows holidays are all about the family. What better way to honor that than with their family-style dinner in celebration of Thanksgiving Day? Of course, their traditional turkey meal will be complete with some of our favorite Thanksgiving side staples, from stuffing to sweet potatoes and more. Not a big Thanksgiving foodie? Not to fear, because Lulu's regular menu (that we love) is available if a turkey is not your taste. Open from noon to 8 p.m., spots are limited, so book your table quick.
