About Lucy Buffett
Creative restaurateur, business woman, author and story teller, Lucy Buffett is more than the sibling of famous troubadour Jimmy Buffett, just as her business, LuLu’s, is more than a restaurant. As creator of the LuLu’s brand, Lucy has taken her initial dream, LuLu’s in Gulf Shores, to become a destination in itself serving some 750,000 customers a year. She opened her second LuLu’s location in Destin, FL in the summer of 2015 and it is sharing the successes of her Gulf Shores location. From restaurants to clothing lines, cookbooks, Bloody Mary Mix, seasonings and sauces, a children’s book and the newly-launched Crazy Sista Honey Ale beer, Lucy Buffett combines true Southern graciousness and authenticity with the nerve of a successful entrepreneur. In the spring of 2016, she re-released her formerly self-published cookbook, Crazy Sista Cooking, with a new version entitled LuLu’s Kitchen, A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life. The new book is Lucy’s culinary guide to classic Southern Coastal Cuisine and is packed with more than 120 signature recipes from her childhood along the Gulf Coast and from the kitchens of her popular restaurants. Known as Crazy Sista for good reason, Lucy marches to the beat of her own drum; she plays nice, but usually by rules she has bent, broken or reinvented.
