Cafe Luna is a family-style, family-owned, galactic culinary ambassador that delivers refined recipes in an elegant atmosphere of pale brick walls, scarlet curtains, and sinewy metal architecture. Appetites are introduced to a menu piloted by raw filet mignon carpaccio with fresh arugula, capers, and shallots ($13) that leads pasta and protein passengers. Handmade pasta sheets form the signature rosetta, rolled with ham and swiss before being sliced and baked in a creamy parmesan ($15), as well as the capelli di gamberi, mingling angel-hair pasta with sautéed prawns ($21). Large hungers can be substituted by the sautéed flavors of vitello marsala, a veal scaloppini in a creamy marsala wine sauce with mushrooms ($21).

Nestled inside the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Red Pearl Kitchen's executive chef, Chad Cranford, tosses a mélange of Pan-Asian elements that garnered an OpenTable Diner’s Choice Award in 2010. A specialty dim sum menu of steamed, fried, and grilled small plates brims with delicacies such as shrimp har gow dumplings, which hold more tender fillings than the Pillsbury Doughboy's jacket pocket and arrive with a spicy ginger-soy dip. Bacon-wrapped dates take in a two-man show of blue cheese and sweet soy as salt-and-pepper prawns cancan into a bath of sriracha aioli. Drawing inspiration from vibrant tropical gardens and rolling ocean waves, the papaya salad stars seared ahi tuna sprinkled with orange slices and peanuts.
