Luc's Brasserie is a delightful throwback to the Belle Epoque. The bar really is a zinc and waiters are formally attired in black and white without imparting any stiffness. On the contrary, it is a friendly establishment with decent if limited menus du jour and a reasonably wide a la carte.
However, the glaring pitfall is the presence of one or two rogue French wines which are absurdly overpriced and probably on a six times multiple of wholesale price. Nevertheless there are some more reasonable ones available on a more global scale. Chez Bruce has a similar issue with a quite ordinary bottle of Fendant at a price in excess of £100, which is more like a 13 times multiple. They must have thought I had come down the Shannon on a green bike.
All told Luc's is well worth a visit, the food is well cooked (with good advice from the waiter on the onglet) which quite rightly needs to be no more than medium rare or it becomes as tough as the zinc bar.
