Luc Restaurant Review

: Luc re-creates a little bit of France in Madison Park, where 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 to honor 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 essence of lemon. Bistro favorites range from burgers, steaks and pork chops, to Moroccan-spiced lamb sausage. Pizza and pasta selections (don't miss the 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 souffléd potatoes are a signature dish. Should you wish to try the nightly special, which is large enough for a table to share, choose 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 recommended, but it's usually possible most evenings to find a seat.
