La Buca since expansion?

Haven't seen anything on La Buca (melrose at wilton) in some time. I've never been.

Is the expansion finished? Is it still good? What to order?

    1. I drive by it frequently, and the expansion is definitely not done yet.

          Oh, yes, with fireplace upstairs, blonde paneling on both floors, open and large bar downstairs with a patio out back, it looked to be ready in about 4-6 weeks, and that was 2 weeks ago. Be prepared for after Labor Day opening or thereabouts.
