About the Chef
The Best There Is
Lusy arrived in the United States not speaking any English. She opened Lusy’s Mediterranean Café & Grill in 2006. At Lusy’s insistence, everything was from scratch. No canned ingredients, no pre-made sauces or packaged foods. Her recipes came straight from Lusy’s grandmother with her own touches.
Word-of-mouth and Internet postings began to spread about her cooking. Food critics began writing about their experiences.
Reviews from LA Daily News and Westways Magazine, with four million readers, chose Lusy’s as a top pick. Yelp, the online guide for restaurants, calls Lusy’s “stellar” and rates it as among the top in Los Angeles for fresh Mediterranean cuisine.
Named champion at a West Coast chef’s competition in front of industry pros, chefs and restaurant owners. Lusy continues to delight and satisfy diners every day.
