Lucques was opened in 1998--to instant international acclaim--by the duo of three-time James Beard Award-winning Chef Suzanne Goin (Who's Who of Food & Beverage in America 2017, Outstanding Chef 2016, Best Chefs in America--California 2006, Best Cookbook--Cooking from a Professional Point of View 2006) and award-winning, James Beard nominee sommelier/restaurateur Caroline Styne.
Originally the rustic carriage house of the Harold Lloyd Estate, Lucques’ decor featuring brick, wood beams, a garden setting, and wood-burning fireplace, provides a warm and intimate setting.
Goin and Styne have made Lucques a classic in the Los Angeles dining scene, emphasizing delicious and indulgent market-driven ingredients, guided by principles of sustainability, and served in a comforting and gracious setting of hospitality. The beluga lentil soup is a particularly decadent favorite.
Each week, Lucques presents Sunday Suppers: ever-changing, three course, prix fixe menus showcasing the best of seasonal produce from the local Farmers Markets. This night was the inspiration behind Goin’s Beard award-winning cookbook, “Sunday Suppers at Lucques.”
Dining at Lucques is a singular experience. It is undoubtedly fine dining, but in a wonderfully comfortable environment. And they are fully capable of bringing that identical experience to your private functions. Whether it's a cocktail reception or a seated dinner, the restaurant staff can create an event as special as Chef Goin's award-winning cuisine and as unique as Caroline Styne's artisanal wine list. And don't forget to include that beluga lentil soup.
