Lucky’s Steakhouse, an icon at 1270 Coast Village Road in Montecito ever since Gene Montesano and his longtime partners Jimmy Argyropoulos and Herb Simon launched the restaurant in 1999, will open a second location at the Malibu Country Mart in mid-September, bringing its popular dining experience to the center’s diverse collection of upscale boutiques and retailers. The restaurant offers USDA prime steaks and fresh seafood, classic cocktails and an award-winning wine cellar. “From Santa Barbara to Malibu, we are thrilled to be expanding down California’s beautiful coast and opening up in such an iconic destination,” said Montesano. “The Malibu Country Mart is truly the heart of this wonderful community and we are honored to be joining it.” The new restaurant, run by Executive Chef Michael Rosen, will feature a classic steakhouse menu, and the space is designed to be both comfortable and glamorous – great for a casual lunch, brunch or special-occasion dinner. The new Lucky’s Steakhouse will be located within Malibu Country Mart at 3835 Cross Creek Road in Malibu.
