Description

LA Weekly's Description

The California-Mediterranean cooking of Suzanne Goin, which is feminine in all the best ways, is profoundly beautiful in its simplicity, and there is satori to be found in every bite of grilled fish, every herb salad, every roasted vegetable. When she's on, Goin teases out the flavor from a tomato with the precision of a sushi master, making textural contrasts dance and playing with bursts of acidity and the resinous flavors of fresh herbs. Lucques, named for a vivid green variety of French olive, is located in Harold Lloyd's old carriage house; it boasts an ultrasleek Barbara Barry design and one of the nicest patios in West Hollywood, but on loud weekend nights the restaurant can sometimes seem as if it is about 90 percent bar. Sunday family dinners are legendary. Prix fixe dinners.

    If you don't already know, Susan Goin is pretty much the most talented and accomplished Chef in L.A.. This is the first and i believe still the best. She also brought you A.O.C. and the very low key but awesome little seafood restaurant Hungry Cat. As the protoge of one of the pioneers of "California cuisine", Alice Waters, she brings elegance an style to Cal-French comfort food.... More >>

    So chic and romantic. The food definately lives up to reputation of this restaurant. A gastronomic must. Try to book a table on the outside patio.

    The much-lauded Sunday Suppers ($45 per head) are still the best bargain here.

    A relaxed setting with great food. Must sit in the enclosed patio, where the breeze fills the walls. The Alaskan cod or lamb are great picks. -Julie Kwon, Launch My Line

    I love Lucques! I think it's the best restaurant in the country. Go on Sundays and have the great Sunday Supper! -Ryan Scott, Top Chef

    A chic LA classic and a fave of Robert Duffy's. Order the short ribs!
