Menu announced for Lucia, the newest Bishop Arts restaurant

Lucia, the new Bishop Arts District restaurant from former Lola chef David Uygur, is expected to open in the next week.

Uygur told the Dallas Morning News he is doing some trial runs — training staff and cooking for friends and family before the restaurant opens.

He also gave a sneak peek at the menu, which will change daily.

We hope Uygur will draw some of Sharon Hage’s followers now that York Street, sadly, is closed. He contributed to our December cover story with a recipe for his great-grandmother’s apple cake.

    I am sure OC will support it, and I hope folks in Dallas will too.

    It looks like this place is going to be greatness. I hope OC supports it.

    Also, I think it’s charming that Uygur evidently speaks Italian, at least enough that his menu contains no Italian spelling errors. Most menus cannot achieve that with English.
