Lux will feature small plates chosen from Acadian’s trademark dishes, including crab cakes, flat breads, and signature crème brulee

Dundee’s Acadian Grille has turned over a new leaf, transitioning to Lux Lounge earlier this month. Owner Dan O’Brian has redesigned his Creole concept, which features a new social distancing design and elevated standards for sanitation. Not only is O’Brian’s new spot Covid-compliant, but it also features live entertainment six nights a week. Guests will enjoy live Jazz, Blues, Karaoke, and stand up comedy served along side some of their Acadian favorites. Follow Lux on Facebook for a roster of talent, and for a glimpse at the updated menu.
