Palm Springs Life magazine readers and editors have named Lulu and Acqua California Bistros winners in their annual “Best of the Best 2021” awards just announced in the August edition. Lulu and Acqua are both winners for Best California Cuisine; Lulu for Best Breakfast (Brunch), and Lulu for Best Take Out, which was also an “editor’s pick.”

“It’s always an honor to be recognized by our guests as their ‘best’,” said Lulu and Acqua founder Jerry Keller. “Every day our staff works incredibly hard to make our restaurants the very best in the Valley and we’re humbled to be receiving these awards.”

For 10 years, Lulu has served its delicious California cuisine to nearly two million guests who have also enjoyed its extensive menu choices, generous portions and festive dining rooms. Acqua at The River in Rancho Mirage has welcomed guests since opening in 2003 also with delectable menus of fresh California flavors. Both Lulu and Acqua are well known for their award-winning $19.99, three course brunch served on weekends- a favorite of both locals and visitors! Lulu’s take out menu was enhanced during last year’s pandemic and has quickly become a favorite choice for guests dining at home.
Lulu and Acqua have been winners many times in Palm Springs Life’s “Best of the Best” awards including Best American Cuisine, Best Caterer, Best Craft Cocktail, Best Continental Cuisine, Best Hamburger, Best Outdoor Dining, Best Pizza, Best Romantic Dining, and Best Vegetarian/Vegan.
