"Upon entering, Truluck's tantalizes the senses," says Todd Alley, a flack who represents the place. "Imported marble flooring, onyx bar tops, and a back bar showcasing a wine keeper system, luxurious mahogany millwork, rich leather booths, white‑glazed ceramic tile, and brick combine to give the restaurant a timeless, classic feel. Textured walls, cove lighting, and decorative fixtures impart a warm and inviting golden hue."
