Dessert and Aperitifs
Alton Brown has declared the Little Gem Lettuces salad at Luca to be the best he’s ever had, so naturally, Luca has been on DO.’s radar for quite a while. We visited Luca and became huge advocates for their dessert. Luca is the perfect place to go to split a dessert, paired with one of their aperitifs (or even an aperitif flight). Aside from their wood-fired pizzas, Luca is known for their unique selection of various aperitifs! Aperitifs are a type of liqueur typically consumed before a meal to help stimulate the appetite.

Download the Lyft app and get ready for a wine crawl! Start at Checkers Bistro. Then walk right over to Fenz. You can make your way to John J. Jeffries right around the corner, and end at The Fridge (yes, they have wine). What a perfect idea for a wintery night. Oh, and don’t be shy— order some appetizers and dessert, too!
