11/3/17 O&A NYC THIS WEEK: Chez Lucienne Reopens

By Walter Rutledge

Chez Lucienne celebrated it’s reopening on Wednesday, November 1st. The restaurant, which has been closed for the last two month, is back with a new look, a new menu and under new management. Located at 308 Lenox Avenue (one door south of Red Rooster) this quaint little French Bristo has returned with great panache and West African flair.

The remodeled décor has a freshness that accommodates both the happy hour revelers and intimate dining. A serpentine shaped communal seating area framed by ceiling to floor French doors provides an excellent area to mingle. Window shutters uniformly adorned with mirrors lined the long white washed brick wall.

The revamped menu has retained some Chez Lucienne staples. Great burgers ranging from the Le Burger Classique (angus beef) to a veggie burger with chipotle mayo, and French cuisine favorites as Steak Frittes in a signature peppercorn sauce have survived the transition. And new dishes such as La Grillade D’Agneau (lamb Dibbi Mbacke style) Les Boulettes de Poisson Sauce Dakar (Senegalese fish balls in a tomato stew) offer patrons an exciting West African alternatives to French inspired dining.
