What to Eat at Lucca Back Bay, Now Open on Huntington

As we mentioned yesterday, Back Bay’s Sasso is now a second branch of the North End’s Lucca. The new Lucca, however, doesn’t have quite the same menu as the first — some dishes from Sasso have remained and the cocktail list is more carefully edited and less tailored toward the sugary drink mad tourists in the North End.
