Celebrity chef John Besh made his name with the ambitious fare at August. At Lüke, his latest venture, he’s built a place where people can relax with a custom-brewed beer, a colossal platter of raw and boiled seafood, or a satisfying plate of choucroute garni (sausage and pork bellies over sauerkraut). Lüke is a dead ringer for a Parisian brasserie with its pressed-tin ceiling, antique-looking fans, and décor of dark wood and brass. At lunch, it’s become a favourite spot for businesspeople to table-hop. At night, the crowd is a bit more subdued but still having fun.
