Luc Lac Vietnamese Kitchen - Review
The location, 827 SW Second Ave, has been many things over the years, most recently a mini food court. Alan Ho gutted the place to create something much better. Simple design, one open room with concrete floor. The side and back walls are covered with oxblood-colored cushioned bench seats, which are comfortable. Two-top tables ring the outside, which are easily reconfigured for bigger parties The center, as with most new restaurants these days, consists of a three sided bar. The bar opens in the back which, intentional or not, evokes a yin yang feel when juxtaposed with the front-sided opening to the three padded walls. From the ceiling hang a number of pink parasols. For the budget spent on décor, they did a pretty good job to create a somewhat modern but still comfortable feel.
Luc Lac’s menu has many other items that looked good on paper and on nearby tables.
It’s worth a try for lunch or dinner and a huge upgrade for that space and the immediate area.
