One of John Besh’s original concepts, lively Lüke embodies the French brasserie, with a New Orleans twist, of course. Chef de Cuisine Matt Regan has a way with Gulf seafood, which he embellishes with classic French sauces and flavors. House-made is the game here, with pastas and sausages evolving from product into the anchors of spot-on entrees under Regan’s care. And an open kitchen gives diners a view of the craft. Lüke’s long, abundant raw bar offers the unmolested pleasure of seafood still kissed with salt water. And Mixologist Tomas Garcia plays into New Orleans classic cocktail past, updating drinks like the Sazerac and French 75.
