Two Stars for Lure and Lazaro's Cuban Cusine

Andrew Thomas Lee

For Creative Loafing, Brad Kaplan reviews Lure. Kaplan awards the Midtown restaurant two stars and says "executive chef David Bradley and his team nail what is most important for a seafood house — high-quality, expertly prepared seafood," but that they could stand to focus in a little more instead of offering a menu that "suffers from the scattershot approach." He recommends the fish and chips and the Calendar Island mussels, but is wary of more intricate dishes and flavors, saying that "Lure's greatest strength is in its well-sourced and well-cooked seafood."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jenny Turknett takes on Lazaro's Cuban Cuisine. The Cuban restaurant opened last spring in Rosewll and gets two stars from Turknett. She recommends the lechon asado, the ropa vieja, and the mojo sauce, which can apparently make any dish better, but does mention that the restaurant could stand to have a full bar. Bottom line? "Every neighborhood needs a spot to get a home-cooked meal. At Lazaro's, you can get one, Cuban-style."
