The Re-Creation of The House Of Lu, Marietta

Creative TeamIt is finished and opened.  The redesign of the House of Lu started over a year ago, as Cassandra Buckalew, Cindy Lu Tam and Johnny Tam, poured over designs, ideas, took field trips, and dreamed.  And then the new  design was done.   In one short month the creative team of the refurbishing of House of Lu totally gutted the interior and did a rebuild – that is beyond any one’s imagination and more.  The elegant look is reminiscent of fine dining anywhere.  Pictured at top l-r: Francisco Dean, Project Manager, Cassandra Buckalew, Designer, Johnny Tam, Cindy Lu Tam, General Contractor Victor Maneerat and Artist Marc Noreikas.

Original Ribbon CuttingThe original House of Lu was opened 18 years ago by Peter and Cindy Lu, with a ribbon cutting that included Mayor Ansley Meaders and Councilman Philip Goldstein. (See photo below).

The Lu’s family’s passion for food and cooking is what started it all. Since 1995, they have served Lu’s original recipes at the original House of Lu. The Lu family  are the original owners of the “ House of Lu”. No other “LU” locations are affiliated with this House of Lu or this Lu Family.

Along with the refurbishing of the restaurant “Mama Lu” (Cindy Lu) has added original Vietnam recipes to the menu.  Cindy Lu Tam advises that the family is Chinese, but grew up in Vietnam. With almost 3 decades of experience in the restaurant business, they proudly preserve their passion for food with their family’s recipes. They care and use the finest, freshest ingredients when serving your lunch, dinner, parties, and catering needs.
