The best Lettuce Playlists

If there’s one thing Lettuce restaurants love…it’s a theme. Think about it: you can leave the Chicago winter for some California sunshine at Summer House Santa Monica, taste the tropics at Three Dots and a Dash, and even time travel back to the ‘70s at R.J. Grunts

But it wouldn’t feel quite the same without music to match the mood. 

Whether you’re into hip hop, classic rock, or even easy listening – there’s probably a Lettuce playlist for you. Fire up your Spotify account and get into the groove of your favorite restaurants.
