Lusca Opens For Dinner Tonight

luscadrawing

Lusca will open for dinner service tonight at 5:30 p.m. The highly anticipated new restaurant from chefs Angus Brown and Nhan Le of Octopus Bar takes over the Brookwood Hills space once occupied by Bluefin.

“It’s pretty much the dream restaurant for Nhan and me,” Brown said recently. And earlier today Brown confirmed that Lusca would be “all the way open tonight” with full bar service.

CL has a preview of the menu, which includes a raw bar with oysters, live scallops and sea urchin, cured meats and other treats from butcher Jonathan Sellitto, and entrees such as lamb neck and quail. Look for lunch and brunch hours soon.

I love Octopus so I went to Lusca last night expecting to be impresses and I was!! Love the space, service is attentive and the food is amazing!! We tried several Nigiri-hamachi belly, eel, and sweet shrimp and I drool thinking about each one. Also had fried smelt and a crab/avocado dish. Finished off with a ricotta tart and my friend had a crazy delicious banana cake with chocolate and topped with coffee ice cream. Can’t wait to go back.
