Listen to this week’s boozy, briny episode!
For those who work in the restaurant business and work split shifts (lunch & dinner) like Chef Willin Low, you’ll treasure those magic 2-3 hours in-between. Willin heads here for a little “me” time when he can, specifically because it’s open all day from 12 noon and also because of the wonderful food and drinks! For a post-lunch, pre-dinner snack, Willin recommends Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chop House’s fresh, flavourful Tuna Tartar with avocado & toasted ciabatta and Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes done Maryland style. The crab cakes, in particular, are mostly big chunks of crab, so juicy on the inside, crisp on the outside and altogether awesome!
Needless to say, leave a little room for some fresh oysters, washed down with a stress-busting cocktail or two. Willin is partial to their Martini & Bloody Mary, which he likens to tomato soup that’s cold and refreshing, with a good punch of alcohol and the perfect balance of savoury, sweet, spice & tang.
So next time you’re in dire need of an early Happy Hour or looking for a place to while away time between lunch and dinner, Luke’s is the place for great cocktails, lovely interiors and delicious snacks.
There are 2 branches now, but Willin’s favourite remains the original, just off Club Street.
