Two Superb CBD Lunches

I recently ate at Luke and MILA for lunch. Both offer fixed priced lunches -- two courses for $15 at Luke and three courses for $20 at MILA -- in addition to an a la carte menu.

Thursday's special at Luke was a delicious bowl of veal cheeks, wild mushrooms and gnocchi. The corn and crab soup had a wonderful seafood broth (no cream).

At MILA, I was glad to see the three course menu from Rene Bistro days. The soup was a silky mirliton and cream puree with fresh Louisiana crawfish. The entree was grilled, smokey quail and rissotto framed in (I believe) a port demi-glace. For dessert, light chocolate mousse and whipped cream, topped with sugared crumbles. The alternative offerings included an interesting salad, filo wrapped redfish, and fresh raspberry sorbet.
