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!
Have you tried D'Cache? Small plates Latin American food. Even entertainment if you are into that.

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.
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.
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.

You might like Prosecco in Toluca Lake rather than Luca's...which seems to have been in the "growing pains" stage ever since its opening. Same problem with Ciao Cristina a few blocks south of Lucas.
