Lunch at Lusca
I made a return visit to Lusca over in Buckhead for a dude's lunch last week. I've really enjoyed the food at Lusca both times I've visited. Honestly, if it were closer, and not quite so $$$, I'd make it a regular stop. The crab toast above has been a mainstay on Lusca's menu for some time. And for good reason. It's pretty to look at and is right tasty.
Farm egg with Uni. Still a winner.
The burger. I'd put this near the top of very good burgers I've had recently. Thick patty, cooked to a perfect med-rare with a rich, juicy interior. Could do without the sloppy pile of grilled onions, but all-in-all, along with tasty, thin-cut crispy fries, this was a winner for me.
I had met the A+ sommelier at Lusca, Tim Williard, at a friend's b-day party and we reconnected at lunch. Tim was nice to send over a sample of this low-alcohol, bone-dry Lambrusco which was a great little lunch wine. Thanks, Tim! If you are into wine, go check out Tim's list of eclectic and geeky wines.
