search and devour: lucas park grille's hummus platter
our faithful readers know that we love us some frickin hummus, and we've commented on lucas park grille's hummus before, but we recently discovered that they've upped their game even more. during our last visit, we ordered the hummus duo platter, which featured their already-stellar roasted red pepper hummus. now, though, they're also including a roasted garlic hummus and a lentil and couscous salad. the roasted garlic hummus has just the right amount of garlic and cumin; the lentil salad was equally good and in no way played the roll of third fiddle. it doesn't hurt that lucas park used some really good olive oil, but it was the peppery lentils and feta that kept us interested. combine all of this with warm, seasoned pita, and you have yourself one of the best mezze plates in the city.
