Luz--consistently good

We went to Luz (177 Vanderbilt Ave.) tonight for dinner. Arrived around 7:30; the room was pleasantly crowded, but there were a few tables available, and we were seated promptly. Service was friendly and attentive (the bus boy has been there for a long time, and is really nice). Had a pitcher of sangria, which we really enjoyed. We shared a salad (hearts of palm, mango, avocado, grape tomatoes and red onions dressed with ginger-orange vinaigrette) which was very tasty, and then my husband had the salmon and I had the chupe (shrimp chowder in a saffron broth). Both were delicious, and very good value.

We've been going intermittently for several years and always enjoy the food and service. Just wanted to give them a shout-out for maintaining quality and service.

  1. I like it too, and the menu is creative. It deserves more love, you are right. The construction site next door put me off for a while, though. Is the construction finished?

      We went at night, and found parking almost directly outside, so I didn't really pay attention to what was around it. I think the construction "shed" is still up, but can't be sure. But, certainly no impact inside the restaurant :)!
