Lucky 8 is serves updated versions of classic American-Chinese food -- the kind you find in any town in America, but somewhat better. The chef is Justin Strnad (Osteria La Spiga, Palace Kitchen, Purple). The decor is slightly kitschy but comfortable, with a large gong in the kitchen area, and they have free (bicycle) delivery for people in the Capitol Hill area. There is a small bar, with fairly limited spirits -- at least on this visit shortly after they opened.
