burbank - toluca lake help
Anyone ever been to Lucas Trattoria? I can't find anything about it. I like Bistro Provence (same owner, same strip mall on Pass) and I've been to Third & Olive, located at ( shock o shocks) 3rd & Olive in Burbank and while I prefer Bistro Provence, perhaps that's because I prefer the smallness, "hidden gem-ness" of the place.
Any idas? Suggestions? (Hold the chains, please!) Thx!
I haven't (yet) been to Lucas Trattoria ... are you aware it's the same owner as Bistro Provence and Third and Olive?
D'Cache has very good food in a charming, truly hidden-gem location. I've had problems with their service - I wouldn't go on a night when you have theater or movie plans.

It sounds like you're looking for higher-end places; Burbank's not really good at that.
If you're OK with downscale options, I recommend Chinda Thai on Victory (technically in Glendale). It's next to Nishi-Ya, which is also very good sushi but traditional only (you'll drop $40-$50 for lunch, no California rolls, etc.)
Cafe Bravo, also technically in Glendale on Glenoaks, is very good Armenian food.
Portos-corner of Magnolia and Hollywood way. This a bakery that serves lunches. Always busy.
Tony's Buena Vista-Magnolia Blvd-Italian
Century Dragon- Magnolia Blvd-Better than average chinese food for the area.
sushi Nishi-ya-Actually in Glendale-Victory Blvd. Maybe the best sushi bar in the area. Very small
sushi Yuzu-touluca lake-the menu leans toward fusion type of cuisine.
North End Pizza-
Big Mista Bar B que-Atwater farmers market-Saturdays only.
