Lusca: A First Look in Buckhead

Warning:  The following may be inappropriate to children under the age of 13 and those who haven't had a late night dessert at Cafe Intermezzo on Peachtree

Lusca is a new restaurant in Buckhead that just opened 5 weeks a go.  I had lunch there today, but not enough of a meal to make a comprehensive entry.

I will say this.  The food was delicious, the staff was knowledgeable and you could tell they were conscientious in their efforts into making each meal memorable.

We had the Beet Tartar and a dozen oysters to start.

The egg made this dish a great combination.

Patt had the Lobster Roll.  The description made it sound like The Optimists poor excuse for a lobster roll, which is really lobster salad, but this game with very generous chunks of lobster meat.

My new-ish foodie partner Terry and I ordered the same thing, which is not surprising after dining with him multiple times.  We had the Veal Tagliatelle.  

The sauteed onions and mushrooms were a nice touch.
The location is in South Buckhead, a couple of doors down where Cafe Intermezzo was in Buckheads heyday.

I look forward to having dinner here and doing a full write up.  This location isn't the best around, but I really hope these guys make it.  You can feel a genuine love for the product and experience that rivals Miller Union.

Today's Footnote:  We have two more entries coming up.  The Final Four of the Taco Tournament will end with a Barnstorming of the remaining taco joints.  There will also be a stop at Buckhead Institution McKinnon's Louisiane Restaurant.

So from an earlier reference.  A little Beat Street for BMac
