LUCK's Food Doesn't Quite Match Up to the Beer

Scott Reitz went to LUCK: The recently opened Trinity Groves spot has "a decent beer list that makes LUCK worth a visit on its own," but the food is a bit more of a challenge. He found the beef-and-cheese-stuffed bierocks "dry, almost chalky," soft pretzels "blonde and bready," and smoked chicken wings "occasionally dry, and tainted by an acrid bitterness." Better choices are a torta de lengua "heaped with tender, beer-braised meat," and an apple fritter "that should be applauded," particularly when paired with a side order of the beer ice cream, which is made with Lakewood Temptress — but beware, the ice cream is "so alluring that it sells out most nights." [Observer]

Mark Vamos (filling in for Leslie Brenner) reviewed Salum: Tucked away from the raucous Uptown crowds in a quiet shopping center, Abraham Salum's restaurant caters to "serious, grown-up people" with food to match. Although the food is hardly cutting-edge, it's consistent, "intelligently conceived, flawlessly prepared and beautifully presented." Standout dishes include Belgian beer-steamed mussels with perfect frites and the Dijon-truffle crusted rack of lamb. The wine list "skews toward California" but offers reasonable prices, and service is "attentive and exact." Four stars. [DMN]
