Sometimes simple and humble is best when it comes to design; case in point, the interior of Lulu & Po in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, a low-key restaurant with an industrial vibe punctuated with dashes of color. Oh, and a giant rooster mural. Chef Matthew Hamilton (he's an alum of the Prune and Belcourt) named his restaurant after his daughter, Lulu, and his wife, Po Kutchins; he worked with local design studio Ka.Va. (headed by Kananshree Prasee and Sanjive Vaidya) on the interiors. For more information, go to Lulu & Po .
