A Grand Blanc steakhouse establishment has opened a second location in Rochester Hills and because of the success is working on a third location in Dallas.
opened last month on Rochester Road near Tienken, five years after the opening of the Grand Blanc location that launched the Luca's brand. The Rochester Hills location is in a former Mexican that's been turned into a posh restaurant and bar.The Luca's in Dallas will open in that city's Uptown neighborhood.
"It's going really well," says restaurant manager Viktor Krcaj, pointing out that more than 30 full-time jobs have resulted from the opening. "The community accepted us and welcomed us. They've been supporting us from day 1."
Luca's is a family affair started by patriarch Luca Gjonaj and run by sons Nik and Steve. To them, Krcaj says, family service equals hospitality, something Luca's wants to be known for.
"That's the backbone of our business. We pay so much attention to that. We do not forget about the hospitality," Krcaj says, "It's about hospitality and great food. Luca told us when we were planning the menu and the food to just bring the best cuts. Make it great food."
Luca's menu runs the gamut from Italian and comfort food to veal, seafood and, of course, steaks. It has a wine list of 160-plus wines.
