Original Abistro Space to Reopen As Lulu & Po, Plus a Promotion

The petite space.

While Abistro lives on, albeit at another location, Matthew Hamilton (of Belcourt, until this week) is opening Lulu & Po in the original Fort Greene location (154 Carlton Avenue). Hamilton tells Diner’s Journal that the restaurant will have 30 seats with a menu that features local ingredients, “but the focus will be more European than American.” In other news noted by the column, P.J. Calapa at Ai Fiori has been promoted to chef de cuisine. Kudos. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]
