Lucques Restaurant

Sunday, October 11


8474 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90069

Named after a variety of French olive, Lucques Restaurant is set within the neighborhood of Melrose in West Holywood. The restaurant is supervised by popular chefs Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne. The place was opened in a converted carriage house transformed by designer Barbara Barry---of silent film star Harold Lloyd into a rustic setting. The building was decorated with aged brick and façade of vines that adds to the distinctive farm-feel of the place. Stepping into the restaurant, a diner will be emanated by subdued lightings and dark wood flooring. An artful display of mirrors in the dining room surely presents an air of elegance. You can choose to dine into one of their booths near a fireplace or outside in an enclosed patio lined with vines. The ambiance alone is quite satisfying.


"Niman Ranch Beef Short Rib"

Lucques Restaurant introduces contemporary Mediterranean cuisines. First in the menu is an array of wine selections from sparkling, white or red wine. The range of wine was expertly picked by Caroline Styne. Upon order, drinks were presented promptly so you can sip your wine while viewing the menu. The dishes served here are fresh-from-the-farm produce bought from the local farmers. A suggested starter dish is the “Asparagus with Slow-Cooked Egg” with whole grain mustard, parmesan and Salame Gentile. This dish is very appealing and tastes warm and creamy. Another complementing dish is “Cipollini Onion and Bleu de Severac Tart” with walnuts, dried figs, and arugula.  The selection of main course is definitely a challenge in this restaurant, because of a very wide variety of meal, but the most recommended main dish is “The Devil’s Chicken”, a signature dish of Goin comprised of chicken in mustard, breadcrumb crust and spicy marinade. Another must-try is “Niman Ranch Beef Short Ribs” prepared with sautéed greens, pearl onions, and a dollop of horseradish cream. To top it all, a choice of panna cotta with grapefruit or strawberry for dessert is really enticing.


Lucques Restaurant is a place any diner should not miss out.  You may also want to try their Sunday Super Nights offering three courses. Surely, Lucques’ customers will be glad to return.
