Switch-up at LuLu's in Shockoe Bottom.

Posted By on Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 4:00 AM

Millie's Diner owner Paul Keevil has taken over operations at the Shockoe Bottom spin-off LuLu's;  former partner Steve Jurina is no longer involved at the restaurant.
Tweaks to the menu, cocktail and wine lists and service team are taking effect over the next few days, says new general manager Kirsten Hansen, who returns to Richmond after stints as a wine rep and at Greens in San Francisco. Here, she's bringing wines "with the best bang for the buck, as little mark-up as possible," she says. "I want to get people excited about wine and the lesser-knowns as well as the familiar."  Hansen notes Richmond's increasing interest in learning more and tasting more wines and hopes to capture that through a list mostly in the $25- 44 range.
Fancy snacks at the bar will bring something different to weeknight happy hours, including sausage-stuffed fried olives, bacon-wrapped dates and truffled popcorn. Dinner entrees new to the comfort-food menu will include seared duck breast with wild mushroom hash and a fig glaze, and house-made goat cheese tortellini with mussels in spicy tomato sauce.
Small changes to the industrial decor "will make it more cohesive," Hansen says. See Style Weekly for more details.
