Best Dinner Theater - 2007
Lucas Park Grille
You never know what show you'll see at the hottest of Washington Avenue's hot spots. The ribald adventures of a bride-to-be and her bachelorette party favors? A comedy of manners about someone's wiggling rear and its proximity to your $30 entrée? A tragic tale of convention attendees drunk on Bud Select and ogling women half their ages? A triple bill, perhaps? Whatever the particulars, you can rest assured that dinner at Lucas Park Grille will feature entertainment, and that most of the cast will be young, beautiful and dressed to kill. Fortunately, dinner here is more than a mere sideshow. Chef Jason Bayle offers a menu that is both strikingly creative and heartily satisfying: Maybe he'll dazzle you with the unlikely pairing of foie gras and a marshmallow; maybe he'll offer you the hearty satisfaction of a saddle of venison or American Wagyu beef. Either way, you're likely to want an encore.
