Location Description:

Bring your best bottle of wine to Lucio's BYOB, between Montrose and Midtown, because it's not just the generous policy (only a $5 corkage fee) that will wow you: The food and service are exceptional here as well, making it an ideal destination for uncorking that long-cellared treat with friends - especially on its elegant patio. Try chef Brett Maesch's simple roasted chicken or a whole fish fileted for you tableside, and save room for the elegant and inspired appetizers, too, from seared tuna sashimi to a gorgeous heirloom tomato salad.
