We saw Lucky’s Cafe on “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” The location is tucked away in a corner of a re-gentrifying neighborhood. The restaurant is small and I could easily imagine that the place would have long waits for service on busier days. There's some outdoor seating that would be a nice option on good weather days. It was moderately busy when we arrived for a late lunch, but were seated immediately. I had a Reuben while my wife tried the Shipwreck skillet. The meals were very good, but also very expensive. Their prices are closer to fine dining than diner. Another reviewer commented that Lucky's is "hipster central." I concur with that observation 100%. And being hip is a good thing when the result is an unconventional, relaxed eatery. But sometimes hip equates to a pretenious staff. Lucky's generally fell on the positive side of that equation, but some of the staff (the hostess) were aloof. All in all, I’d be interested in stopping again to try a breakfast selection, but I know now that I’ll first need to get a home equity loan in order to pay the tab. Did I mention how expensive our meal was?
