Lucky Duck is a modern American Bistro featuring artisan raised, hormone and anti-biotic free meats, the freshest seafood and truly local and seasonal produce.

Our menu is crafted for sharing, sampling and most importantly –  eating.  Our philosophy here and at our other restaurants is simple:  Natural is always best and basic is not a trend.

Some tips for our neighbors: We offer Happy Hour every night from 6-7 and feature an amazing wine list curated by our friend, Lou Amdur.   We are also very excited to be offering brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9-3.

Hope to see you soon.

Time Out Los Angeles

In an entertainment-driven city such as ours, we are all too familiar with this fact: Trilogies seem to have a depreciating quality (we can debate the merits of re-makes another time). So it is surprising that Lucky Duck by Square One, the third act from Square One Dining, may be the strongest in the series, one that includes the original Square One Dining and Square One at the Boathouse.
