Forget Maestro's or Flemmings, or Wolfgang's, Lucky's is the place. Amazing atmosphere, light, airy and not dark and dim. Great bar service and everything from the calamari to the burger to the Delmonico shines. Crushed it and will be back many more times!

Sure. Lucky's is very accommodating, but the question is why would you want to call it in? Half the fun of eating at Lucky's is... eating at Lucky's!
