Take note: When this Gibsons offshoot calls itself “Lux,” it means it in an old-school way. Both the food and space seem to be imported from a simpler era, with dishes like luscious filet mignon “sliders” and crispy, juicy fried chicken. For a clubbier take, check out the upstairs Lux Lounge, open Friday and Saturday nights only, where all-female DJs spin dance music and mix cocktails.
