Loca Luna's chefs populate a menu of small plates embellished with compact Latin cuisine including tacos, tapas, ceviche, and paella. Chefs incorporate Latin ingredients such as plantains and mango into small portions of cold and hot tapas, which allows guests to order a number of small dishes to create a meal with as many permutations as a Choose Your Own Adventure story about a door factory. The lively bar keeps glasses filled until the wee hours, pouring drinks such as Loca Luna's famous original mojito, traditional South American caipirinhas, and a selection of domestic and imported beer.
Drawing loyal customers and celebrities alike, Loca Luna's spacious central dining room transports diners into a verdant, lively jungle setting with vibrant, leafy murals and tropical trees that delicately hang over tables and are known for routinely asking to sample the cuisine. The bar and lounge area serenades guests with live nightly tunes, and the restaurant's picturesque patio is perfect for practicing open-air ingestion. After dinner, customers can head to the dance floor to channel senses of Latin rhythm.
