New Jackson Ward restaurant uses family farm for ingredients
A husband and wife are keeping at least one farm-to-table supply chain in the family as they settle into their new Jackson Ward restaurant.
Jason and Amanda Lucy in late December opened their first restaurant, Lucy’s, at 404 N. Second St.
Lucy’s will serve seasonal American fare such as steak, seafood and vegetables. It will have three beers on tap to go with the wine and cocktail menus.
“We want it to be the kind of place you’d come to one or two times a month,” Jason Lucy said. “Not one or two times a year.”
“The more people that come down here, the better,” Jason Lucy said. “We’re helping to revitalize this neighborhood and bring it back to what it was.”
The property has been vacant for at least 10 years but was home to New Hong Kong, a Chinese restaurant, sometime before, he said.
The Lucys purchased it for $100,000, according to city records.
