$20 for $40 Worth of Mediterranean Cuisine
The menu includes small plates such as fried blue-cheese olives with horseradish tahini ($7) and stuffed clams ($10) as well as large plates such as mussels in a green-harissa broth ($14) and lamb shank braised in barolo wine ($25).
Unlike its eclectic selection of seasonal dishes, Lura Restaurant features a design theme hinged on two simple materials: wood and rock. Walls lined with exposed stone and brick surround stained-wood tables, thick timber columns, and a wooden mantle above a fireplace. Patrons gather in the rustic setting to share Mediterranean-style tapas, which may include sun-dried-tomato hummus, tahini artichoke hearts, and Italian-style fettuccini with fennel sausage or to devour individual dishes, such as grilled tiger shrimp and steak frites. As its cocktail-embedded logo suggests, Lura Restaurant also offers a number of mixed drinks, wine, and beer that pair perfectly with the seasonally changing menu and your frenemy’s face.
