The folks who are opening a restaurant called Lulu & Po in the old Abistro space on Carlton Avenue are blogging about their renovation. Some neat details from the work done so far: “At this stage Gerrett and I have most of all of the inside gutted. We took the sheet rock off the walls and brought the place back to the 1990’s. It was a little socal club from what we are told. There are some calendars and postings on the walls made out of cardboard and old newspapers all in Spanish. The names and dates on the calendar are either birthdays or deaths. We think both.” The small restaurant will feature local ingredients but focus on European rather than American fare, according to reports.
