    I love the steak frites at Lucques. (It's probably too early for their blta, which is astonishing, to be on the menu.)

      You can check the menu online; Saturday lunch has limited choices, but the steak frites is all you need. It comes plated with with an arugula salad, and the super-skinny frites have some bits of fresh herbs fried along. No starter needed.

        I never order chicken, but the crisp baby chicken with shortrib hash at Table 8 is fantastic.

          There were just several posts raving about the porterhouse steak for two at Table 8 ($75). You need to call ahead and reserve one if it piques your salivary glands interest.

            i agree that best dish at table 8 is the salt crust portershouse steak..order it when making reservation.
            alos on the menu that was great is lamb dish done in 3 ways...not sure if its done everynight but great! lamb chop, lamb osso bucco and lamb loin? best lamb dish we ever had!

            Table 8: the kobe steak, but whatever you order I don't think you can go wrong. I hope not for their and your sake anyway.

            Lucques: haven't been there...have fun though!

              I was not impressed by Lucques -- but I went for the Sunday Supper. I felt rushed and the food was overcooked. Maybe I'll need to give them another chance on a non-Sunday.

                As others have said, the steak frites at Lucques are not to be missed.

                At Table 8, make sure to get the veal cheeks.
