Food is tasty, but two tiny arepas for $7 started my frustration. But $14! for a bowl of soup. Granted its a delicious shrimp chowder. But $14 is an insult.

Went to Luz on friday, was not impressed, the chicken was so so, the spinach was a total let down, they changed cooks and it was very different, could hardly taste the garlic on the spinach mostly lemon juice, beans had a little too much cilantro, just not what I was expecting, alright atmosphere, the food took a while to come, the waitress came to the table a hundred times even after we told her we would have drinks have dinner. she was nice, but a little annoying. A funny thing happened while I was there, a cute little poodle ran in the kitchen twice, it was hilarious.

Skip the Lamb, it was fatty and absolutely nothing special about it. The salad thing that came on the side gag inducing, i couldn't even swallow it. Ceviche wasn't good, too much ginger and you could hardly tell what was what, i like a junkier ceviche.

I absolutley love the food, atmosphere and the service is great. The chicken is delightful, especially with the sauces they are served with. I am not usually one to do desserts, but whenever I go to Luz I can't leave without having the amazing Mexican Sorpresa - it's molten chocolate brownie, with banana and ice cream (served warm). The absolute best!

In our continued pursuit for a single, consistently great brunch spot, today my girlfriend and I ventured to Ft.Greene to try out Luz. The short of it: pretty good, but short on authenticity. The atmosphere is pretty bland, feeling more like an imitation Latin club than an authentic culinary destination. Initially the music was distractingly poor, with 4x4 beats further conveying the club environment, but that subsided and was replaced by very good down-tempo, think Kruder & Dorfmeister, DJ Cam, and the likes. The place was surprisingly empty. The menu was initially intriguing, but upon further discovery I think the descriptions are probably more creative than the actual dishes. She had the eggs benedict, which is a Latin twist on the standard brunch fare, chorizo instead of canadian bacon, corn bread instead of english muffin, and a "rocoto" hollandaise sauce. The corn bread wasn't able to hold up against the yolks and sauce, resulting in grainy mush rather than a platform for taste. The rest was more or less standard, with neither the chorizo nor the sauce standing out as unique. I had the coconut crusted french toast with "seasonal fruit-cachaza salsita and cinnamon scented maple syrup." Let me translate: chopped strawberries and mangoes (not in season) and syrup with a cinnamon stick plopped in it right before serving so there's no real noticeable scent. I think you get the picture of the descriptions vs the dishes. As with most every brunch possibility, we won't be returning, so our seemingly endless search forges on.

The cocktail menu is very interesting and they made a great pisco sour. Chicken was really good, and only $6 for a half-chicken (although the sides are $5 each). Mango ribs were delicious, falling off the bone, we had another appetizer of plaintain-wrapped roast pork that was good too. The salmon was pretty good. The best, though is the arepas yum!

If you're hungry and like to eat, don't come here. Most of the dishes are superb (the beef ribs among the best I've ever had - as well as the - yes - collard green!). But there are no extras and some portions are very small. The green salad was tiny and weightless, and the ceviche, though excellent, was the smallest portion I've ever seen anywhere served - for $18, barely enough for one. There is no visible bread. A glass of wine is really a half glass. But the menu and food are hard to beat in Bklyn!
