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).
