Lucques is solid from beginning to end. The food is top-notch. Service is professional but warm. And the ambiance works for anything from a business meeting to a friendly get-together to a cozy romantic date. You really can't go wrong here.


  1. I love restaurants where it's more about the food than the "scene"

  2. Looks amazing! I just cooked from the Suday Suppers at Lucques cookbook last night, but have no yet made it out to the restaurant ...
