Culinary Arts

Denton draws on over 20 years of culinary experience, having headed up kitchens at some of the nation's top restaurants, including Eureka and the Hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles, The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, and Red Sage in Washington, DC.

Wolfgang Puck, Dean Fearing, Mark Miller, and Rich Melman are among the many mentors who have helped shape Denton's long career.

Since taking over the helm at Restaurant LuLu in 1995, Denton has overseen tremendous growth in the company, cementing LuLu's reputation as one of San Francisco's premiere dining spots. In 1998, he opened Zibibbo in Palo Alto, which was named on of the country's top 20 restaurants by the readers of Gourmet magazine. His third restaurant, Azie, will debut in 1999 in a converted warehouse space next to Restaurant LuLu, located in San Francisco's burgeoning South of Market neighborhood.

Denton continues to find new inspiration for his cooking in travel, gaining first-hand knowledge of the traditional and innovative cuisines of cultures around the world, and fostering a truly cosmopolitan approach to cooking that informs all of his culinary ventures.
