Lucca Cafe Orange County
6507 Quail Hill Pkwy, Irvine, CA 92603
I was looking for a Thanksgiving dinner in a box when I found the Lucca Café and Market on-line. The dinner waas a complete meal with a whole turkey, salad, yams, green beans, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry/orange chutney (very yummy!), dinner rolls, and a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Heating instructions were included that were accurate and easy to follow, about 45 minutes from start to table. Give yourself an extra 15 minutes to get a head start on carving the turkey prior to heating. The Turkey was thoroughly cooked and moist (they brine the birds for 1-1/2 days before roasting). All of the sides were very fresh and tasty. Nothing was over cooked. The meal fed 8 adults at our table with plenty of left overs even after seconds. This has to be one of the best Thanksgiving dinners I have ever eaten. I would do this again in a heartbeat. I can't say enough about how good this meal was. What a gem of a place. I hope they remain in business for many, many years.
