LUCA ON SUNSET Celebrates Oscar Sunday

It’s Oscar weekend.  Joan Rivers is busy with an emergency touch up.  Stylists all over town are suffering panic attacks.  The ladies of the red carpet haven’t eaten solid food in weeks.   And we mere mortals… absolutely cannot get enough!

Of course, critiquing of red carpet faux pas and mocking acceptance speeches gone awry takes energy and creativity.  Los Angeles sarcasm does not arrive easily, and is not performed well on an empty stomach.  Enter Luca On Sunset. This weekend, the West Hollywood eatery that has quickly become a neighborhood destination is rejoicing in all things Oscar.

First, for every dollar spent in the dining room on Oscar Sunday, guests will receive a gift certificate of the same denomination to return to the restaurant in the future.  The red carpet arrivals will stream live, as will the awards ceremonies.  Guests will be given ballots to choose winners, and for each winner correctly selected, Luca and The Mann’s Chinese Theatre will award the guest with two tickets to the theatre.  You may never pay for another movie ticket in 2012…or 2013.

If, on the other hand, you must run in to pick up a gorgeous dessert for a hostess gift, a sandwich for the sofa, or dinner for the family, you will not miss a minute of the action, whether it is Miss Rivers unknowingly insulting a tween starlet, or Harvey Weinstein pretending that he didn’t just purchase an award.  You’re guaranteed to enjoy every salivating minute.


Opened recently on a high profile stretch of Sunset Boulevard by the gregarious Luca Giorgetti as a follow up to his long successful Beverly Hills lunch destination, Basic Bites, Luca On Sunset is a casual dining destination featuring a healthful California twist on the foods and recipes of his Tuscan childhood.  Recently expanding hours to include a dinner menu, Luca’s menus offer a unique selection of Panini, salads, pizzas, pastas, and dinner entrees, as well as a boutique selection of wine and beer.   Luca on Sunset has rapidly built a cult following for its freshly pressed juice and coffee bar offerings, with lines forming continuously throughout the morning hours for the restaurant’s healthful start to the day (and quite possibly the most delicious croissant in Los Angeles.  YES, we said it! …More to come on those croissants).
