The Joy of Lüke


Behold, my supper this evening, at Lüke, one of John Besh’s restaurants, an Alsatian bistro. Had to drop down to New Orleans today, and had an early dinner there. Lord have mercy. Everybody should go to Lüke, all the time. Every single day. Get there early for the fifty-cent raw oyster special. The shrimp and grits were exalting too. You know I post on this place every time I go there, but damn! That food!
