Lulu in the Grove

by jem614

Once a year my friends come in from out of town and we get together, all of us girls that haven’t seen each other in a while, and have a night out.  We chose Lulu after a coworker suggested it had the perfect atmosphere for a chill girls night out.

What a great place to hang out and we even got a round of drinks on the house (it helps to know people, that’s all I’m going to say).  Our waiter was very sweet but probably a little overwhelmed by our outspoken group.

As we were only supposed to be there for drinks, I ordered an appetizer of hummus and pita sticks that was the perfect snack.  My friend then ordered the Dulce de Leche that came with a beautiful strawberry flower on top.  There are quite a few options for vegetarians including the Brussel Sprouts appetizer that I heard is a favorite.  Veggie burgers, salads, etc. all are included in the menu.

If you’re looking for a nice romantic spot, a place to people watch or just to hang out with friends, this is definitely the place to go in Coconut Grove.

Thank you Lulu for such a great evening!

Greenstreet Cafe, Coconut Grove

Ashley and I’s first attempt at a cooking class at UM was a bit of a disaster.  Apparently there was a big UM game that night and there was no parking…anywhere.  We were told by the UM team that we would either have to keep driving around (we were already 15-20 minutes late because of traffic) or park almost a mile away.  Even then, it wasn’t guaranteed we’d find parking.  Is this really how they treat their customers?  I won’t be going back for any of their cooking classes as they weren’t very helpful about refunding us or finding us a place to park.  We paid $25 for nothing.

End of my rant.  On to the better part of the evening: We ended up in Coconut Grove at The Greenstreet Cafe.  I’ve been here for brunch and have been very happy with their options.  For dinner, I ordered a delicious Fig Salad and some tasty truffle fries- I have a thing for them and I know the fries kind of cancel out the salad but I was going for taste, not health.  The best part of the meal was what Ashley ordered but I’ll let her describe it in her more elaborate way with words so she can do it justice.
