About Matthew Hamilton

The road to Lulu & Po has been long and winding for Matthew Hamilton, a veteran chef and former Marine, Great Grandson of a butcher and Grandson to a ships cook. After a childhood on Long Island and Upstate NY, immersed in local foods (clams from the sound, turtles from the local ponds, pig roasts on neighboring farms) he discovered a world of previously unknown tastes when stationed in Arizona, California, and Japan while serving in the Marine Corps.

Hello everyone. I just want to
"Hello everyone. I just want to say that's it's been a great 5 years here at Lulu & Po, but like the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. We made a family decision not to renew our lease and decided to sell our space. Our last day of service will be May 31st. I look forward to the future and want to thank everyone for their support over the years. This has been a very positive experience and we are very happy with our decision. Please come in and see us before then and check luluandpo@com for updates for future projects. ❤️MH"
