Time Out says

This new Prospect Heights wine bar and restaurant highlights lesser-seen European natural wines. LaLou takes its name from Lalou Bize-Leroy, a "trailblazing" Burgundy winemaker.

LaLou is run by partners: Joe Campanale (owner of Fausto), Dave Foss (former Anfora Wine Buyer), Ilyssa Satter (who oversees creative direction). The space is simple yet elegant in it’s small details: even the light fixtures made from mycelium by MushLume feel fancy and are a nod to restaurants focus on sustainablity; the concrete bar is meant to reference the material often used to age wine. Bar food includes fried olives, zucchini escabeche and potato dumplings with lemon Sorrento butter sauce,  among others. Dishes are meant to pair well with the of 150+ bottles and by-the-glass wine options.
