When Frank Bonanno added Lou's Food Bar to his empire, fans rushed in for housemade sausage, charcuterie and what the restaurateur was calling roadhouse fare informed by a seasonal French influence. Lou's occupies the former home of Ron & Dan's Keg, an open, awkward room that's been given a minimal makeover in shades of gray with cement floors, dark wood and red cursive lettering on the walls. The bar dominates half of the spot, sharing space with a couple of wall-hugging booths; tables fill in the rest of the blocky dining area, one corner of which is designated for the charcuterie station, where an aproned chef slices cured meat, cheese and pté. The fried chicken and meatloaf are consistently good, and the sausage and spaghetti are occasionally fine, but you expect more than fine from a Bonanno restaurant.
