he first time I went to Luso, my boyfriend and I bumbled in off the street, following the sound of bossa nova guitar. Owner/chef Fatima Eremite Hemmons welcomed us in out of the rain and asked if we liked wine. She handed us glasses of rich, inky Douro red. When she asked if we were hungry, we said yes.
