☞ EAT: Tapas at Tio Luca on Lenox
Word of mouth has it that the owner is from South America originally so we chose the lobster ceviche tapas to start and thought that dish had good qualities but was a little overcooked. The avocado and mango flavors within the dish were definitely top quality along with the robust kernels of roasted corn which had a bit more texture to them than what North Americans are familiar with.
After having more tacos at Cantina this weekend, we decided to check out the chicken quesadillas at Tio Luca which had fresh ingredients but somehow could have been grilled more or offered up warmer than presented. There were heavier entrees on the menu but nothing too adventuresome that would worry a picky eater. Overall the new rustic space with its high ceiling and exposed brick walls is a solid addition to the neighborhood with decent service but we probably have to return one more time to see if some of the other offerings could really amaze us. Has anyone tried Tio Luca?
