Offers a small selection of beers, plus 3 house beers custom-brewed for them by Heiner Brau:
Lüke Fru (a very young beer, perfectly suited for the raw bar), Lüke Export (a golden pilsner with a nose of Austrian hops), and Lüke Alt (an aged pilsner in the Düsseldorf style, best for the menu's meatiest dishes).

With a baby boy at home named Luke, we were immediately intrigued walking by yesterday. And when learned this was a John Besh restaurant, we put Luke on the radar.
Lump crab asparagus omelette with fromage blanc. So light, so fresh and flavorful. Kelly chose the chicken & waffles, accompanied with a side of local mayhaw syrup and a side of Benton Farms bacon, mushroom, onion gravy. The perfectly fried buttermilk chicken breast with gravy was a homerun.
Pretty good, clean beer list for this food forward bistro. Grimbergen, Schneider Weisse, Stella & 3 house made brews on tap. Over 30 in the bottle...lots of Belgians.
The service was very good. We walked I around 1040 and the hostess said they were now serving lunch. We thought about leaving, but were

Stopped in for happy hour on the walk from the French Quarter to the Superdome for the Sugar Bowl.
The 25 cent P&J oysters were the best oysters I've ever had. Not to mention 12 of them for $3. The wife had a roasted beet salad and frites.
I sampled all three house brews, Mardi Gras fest beer (cream ale), blonde, and amber, and a Spaten Optimator. The only beer that appealed to me was the blonde. Not a cream ale fan at all.
The other taps were Stella and Schneider Weisse.
This is easily the most upscale and nicest beer-forward establishment that I've been to in New Orleans. Since it was happy hour (3-6), our bill was a measly $31.

Located in the Hilton, Luke's has great old world charm. It looks well worn with scuffed hardwood floors, wood walls and a nice back bar.
There are two rooms that make-up the space. There is a bar room in front and a dining room with an exposed kitchen in the rear.
The bar sits about 12 and they have nice display of iced oysters, shellfish, etc to whet your appetite.
They have a great happy hour. It runs everyday from 3 to 6 and includes 25-cent oysters and 1/2 price beer.
Speaking of beer, they offer 8 beers on tap including three "house" options (I went with the tasty seasonal Marzen). The bottled list includes a heavy does of European (primarily Belgium & German) & US Micro options. Tap beers were regularly priced at $4.50.
The service was incredibly friendly but pretty slow. I was in no real hurry, but may have been frustrated if I was really thirsty...
The food is fantastic. While they have some local dishes, the menu is definitely bistro focused. Portions are decent sized and the sides are fantastic.
I will be back to visit next time I'm in NOLA.
