The Hammer Museum has brought in two new artists to shake things up: chefs Alice Waters and David Tanis, who have taken over the courtyard dining space. When she launched Berkeley legend Chez Panisse in 1971, Waters was the voice of culinary, farm-to-table sustainability. With Lulu, she and Panisse alum Tanis are moving beyond sustainability to supporting local farmers practicing regenerative agriculture, processes aimed at reversing climate change, like crop rotation and no-till farming.
In addition to featuring green practices on the plate, the duo highlights them under the plate as well: All of the tabletops were crafted from a local fallen tree. The restaurant currently is open only for lunch, where you can choose between a three-course prix fixe menu that changes daily and a selection of soups, sandwiches, and salads.
