Lucca Restaurant and Bar
1615 J St.
The popular restaurant serves an eclectic, Mediterranean-inspired menu. No one seems to mind that the small tables are crammed closely together or that the noise level can often drown out serious conversation. The food is flavorful and prettily presented. Start with a plate of the fabulous zucchini chips, which are hot, salty and addictive. At lunch, don’t miss The Governor’s Special Salad, inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who practically made this restaurant his headquarters. At dinner, opt for the fantastic housemade pappardelle, tossed with chunks of spicy sausage and mushroom ragu, or the braised short ribs.
Price Range: Moderate
