Top pick: The menu changes constantly, but you will definitely want to score at least one bowl of pasta per person, whether it’s a well-known shape like ravioli or a more obscure regional noodle. Don’t miss the charcuterie, which often includes basturma, the cured ancestor of pastrami and a nod to chef David Uygur’s part-Turkish heritage.
The downside: The veggies and pastas are usually more interesting than the meaty main courses — which might be a good thing, since by the time the mains arrive, we’re usually already full.
Fun fact: The notorious difficulty of scoring reservations at Lucia scares people away from actually walking into the restaurant and asking for a seat, a strategy with a decent chance of success, especially in good weather when two outdoor tables are available. ly.
