That’s a weird thing to say about a restaurant...
Applies here, though.
Welcome back, Truluck’s. The newly constructed seafood emporium is now open in Uptown just behind the previous version, which found a second life as a parking lot. (See the slideshow and the menu.)
So, what’s changed? Glad you asked.
Then: It was a one-story operation. The neon-green sign and all that chrome gave things a real diner feel on the outside.
Now: They added another story, for starters. The neon’s gone, and everything’s all sleek and handsome.
Then: Pretty cozy spot with red leather booths.
Now: They’ve still got the red leather booths. But now you’ve got 12,000 square feet to work with, including a large upstairs dining room with private event space.
Then: A 14-seat bar.
Now: A 90-seat bar with a piano and live jazz. That’s precisely 76 seats better than its predecessor.
Then: A menu consisting of chilled seafood platters, 16-ounce ribeyes and fresh stone crabs.
Now: The exact same thing.
