The brunch at Luke is spectacular. Eggs in a jar, simple enough in name, sometimes feature an entire fried soft shell crab creeping out of a clear glass dish layered with eggs and grits. The pancakes are perfect and there's always something on the menu for kids. One of the best reasons to come is for the oyster happy hour. The bivalves are 50 cents each from 3-6 PM seven days a week, so there's no shame in ordering a dozen (or two) for yourself.

A John Besh restaurant, Lüke pays homage to the grand old French and German brasseries that were once hugely popular in New Orleans. A mix of casual yet classy, modern yet vintage, with Southern hospitality ever present and food and drinks that delight the senses. I was floored.
While everything on the menu looked tantalizing, three out of four of us decided to get their daily changing 3-course Express Menu for $23. Best decision ever. I had crawfish bisque as my soup selection, and it was fantastic - a yummy little crawfish with its tiny head poking out of a delicious pool of flavorful bisque. The Friday dinner special was a Redfish "Court-Bouillon" with crab, shrimp, oysters and rice served in a skillet. The generous portions of seafood tasted so fresh, and the cajun sauce was so delicious that I polished off my entire plate with my bread. For dessert, we had Brendan's bread pudding with vanilla bean ice cream and hot buttered pecan sauce which was heaven in a bowl. Bread pudding is my favorite dessert, and Lüke surely blew away my tastebuds with it. And all this for ONLY $23!!
Lüke's classic New Orleans cocktails were also made to perfection. The French 75, St. Charles Streetcar and Sazerac were all wonderful.

Lüke is the "Hotel" restaurant for the Hilton, and what a cool and classy place it is. It has a grand old European feel, with nice hospitality, deep woods, and staff in jackets.
I was here for breakfast recently and received an extra bonus when an old work friend (who I hadn't seen in years) happened to wander in just after me. It was a great time and atmosphere to catch up and contrast my healthy choice with his full on Southern Breakfast. I'd love to come back and give this place a workout for Lunch or Dinner.

Luke is a restaurant I frequent.... John Besh one of New Orleans renown chef's owns it. It has great Brunch Saturday and Sunday with eggs in a pot (with crab grits and hollandaise) and their Mimi's Pancakes with honey pecan butter are my favorites! At 3pm they begin a Happy Hour all week long with 50 cent fresh oysters and half price cocktails... They make a fabulous french 75! There lunch and dinners are great too... I highly recommend Luke!

Chef John Besh's version of a French Bistro with some German and Creole influences. They throw a fine happy hour from 3-6 pm with half-priced alcoholic beverages and 50 cent oysters. The charcuterie is equally amazing and furthers the growing reputation that New Orleans definitely knows their charcuterie.

Hands down the most satisfying gumbo served in New Orleans. The Seafood Gumbo a la Creole is hearty enough to split with a friend and is poured in your bowl table side and chock full of succulent jumbo shrimp and oysters the size of your palm. Sit at the bar if there's a wait for your table and try to contain the drool as you feast your eyes on the skillful shucking of large fresh oysters while you sip on a refreshing Luke Frü, a local blonde lager.
