Description: Luke New Orleans is Besh's homage to the grand old Franco-German brasseries that once reigned in New Orleans. Luke offers an extensive French, German, and Belgian beer selection, including three exclusive house brews [custom-made in Louisiana]. The cuisine is unaffectedly Old World, using slow and traditional cooking techniques. The wine list features reds and whites from the Loire, Alsace, and Savoie regions, as well as Badischerwiens of Germany. Since opening in 2007, Luke has been hailed by Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, and The Times-Picayune Lagniappe, which awarded Luke an impressive three bean-ranking for its "disarmingly home-spun culinary touches and broad-shouldered dishes that satisfy something more than just an appetit."

“Great brunch location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We came here looking for breakfast, but we found out they serve breakfast only on weekends. Our server was kind enough to recommend a great breakfast restaurant nearby, but since we were already seated and it was almost lunch time anyway, we decided to stay. I ordered the Lüke Burger and my friend ordered the Cochon De Lait Jambalaya. Both were good, though not great.

Our server was quite friendly. He asked if we were visitors to the Big Easy and suggested we visit the Le Bon Temp Roule to listen to the Soul Rebels brass band. Great recommendation. Authentic NOLA bar with great entertainment and diverse crowd. Lüke gets an additional star just because of our server - too bad I don't remember his name, but thanks anyway.

“Delicious Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We very much enjoyed eating here. The food was excellent - we had oysters, the soft shell crab BLT, shrimp, and cheese grits. Truly delicious.

Service was just okay - I did not get checked on to reorder drinks until the end of the meal and although I ordered an appetizer of oysters and then shrimp and a side of cheese grits as my entree, they brought out the shrimp as an appetizer. It was served on ice, so not a big deal to save it - just not great in terms of pacing and service. But really - the food was EXCELLENT.

Sunday brunch was excellent. No jazz, but the food was wonderful. Get the crab omelet and a French 75. :-). Wait staff is attentive as well.

“Great food all around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Took a group of 6 to Luke for a social business lunch. The crawfish bisque was very good (had crawfish meat and corn - not blended). It was Thursday so I got the jambalaya and cochon special. It was outstanding - especially the grilled sausage. Others in our group were highly pleased as well. Great pick in NOLA.
