Luc Restaurant Review

: Luc is the quintessential neighborhood bistro. Chef Thierry Rautureau --- known about town as “The Chef in the Hat” due to his ever-present fedora --- brings his touch to this casual-chic place, named for his father. The inviting dining room has an energetic vibe but still allows for conversation. The affordable --- although not inexpensive --- menu features a small selection of à la carte items, including a complex boeuf bourguignon and classic trout amandine in brown butter, accented with just the right touch of lemon. Bistro favorites range from burgers, steaks and pork chops to Moroccan-spiced lamb sausage. Pizza and pasta selections (perhaps linguine in a tarragon-fish sauce) change often. For a light supper, pair a salad with a rich smoked-salmon tartine with capers and arugula. Luc’s soufflé potatoes are a signature dish. Should you wish to try the nightly special, which is large enough for a table to share, include crispy whole roasted chicken, leg of lamb or duck. Enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail, such as the Vesper, or order from the well-selected wine list. You can’t go wrong with Luc’s reasonably priced half-carafe of house wine. Reservations are advised, but it's possible to find a seat most evenings.
