Looks like the space that was once home to Lucier, one of the most hotly-debated (and pricey) restaurants in recent history, might be landing in the hands of Lark Creek Restaurant Group — a well-respected and ever-growing restaurant company based out of San Francisco, CA. Starting in '89 with the Lark Creek Inn, the LCRG has grown into a portfolio of 12 restaurants including San Francisco's stellar One Market Restaurant; Bradley Ogden at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas; and Fish Story in Napa.
Sources say there has been activity at the South Waterfront eatery, and it looks like Lark Creek might be thisclose to getting the keys to Lucier. When asked, a representative for the Dussin Group, which currently owns the space as well as Fenouil and The Old Spaghetti Factory, declined to make any comments regarding the rumor.
UPDATE: Representatives from the Lark Group also refused to comment, saying simply "We can’t actually comment on this right now."
