Sunday Supper at Lucques – Los Angeles

Veal scallopini with polenta, sweet corn and sage brown butter

With a focus on local produce, Lucques is a smart choice for those craving a comforting seasonal menu in warm surroundings. Service is both friendly and professional and the staff will make you feel right at home. Open for lunch and dinner, Lucques also has an extremely popular Sunday Supper which offers a three-course menu from chef Suzanne Goin for $45. Considering the quality and portion size, it is a very inviting deal. I love the idea of a Sunday Supper with three courses, a set price, and a set menu. It creates simplicity as far as decision making goes, and believe me, when you inspect Lucques dinner menu on any other night, there are definitely some tough decisions to be made, from all of the tempting selections.

This past Sunday was Father’s Day, and how fitting that the menu consisted of chef Goin’s dad’s favorite dishes. I must thank and commend him on his good taste, because dinner that evening was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the first course which was a Summer Salad of Cherry Tomatoes, Haricot Verts with Burrata and Pesto.  The Chocolate Sundae with Vanilla Ice Cream, Toasted Almonds, Chocolate Sauce and a Meringue Closerie des Lilas was the perfect ending. Although my dining companions were quite full by the end of the meal, I finished every last morsel.
