It's a Saint Paul on Saint Paul suit, reports the Pioneer Press. Lulu's Market & Deli on the corner of Selby Avenue and Fry Street in the Merriam Park neighborhood alleges that a new Minnesota State Fair booth is confusing customers. Lulu's Public House debuted a rustic new building with a rooftop patio at the West End Market where Heritage Square once stood. Owners of Lulu's Public House also own the Lucky's 13 Pub restaurants. During a tour of the new site before the fair opening, co-owner Charlie Young explained to Eater that the name was inspired by Linda Young whose nickname is Lulu.
Both Lulu's offer takes on a Juicy Lucy, the cheese filled burger. Both offer tacos, although Lulu's on Selby's are fish tacos and Lulu's Public House has prime rib.
The complaint says that Lulu's Market & Deli has been contacted by several customers requesting information about their new State Fair location and wishing them well. Lulu's Market has asked a Ramsey County District Court judge to force the state fair vendor to change its name, siting trademark infringement.
