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?

    Won't be finished for a while yet.

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

          Yes, the restaurant is open during construction in its original space.

          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.
