The chefs at Cafe Luna sate voracious appetites with a menu of grilled pizzas, crisp salads, and hearty sandwiches. Lunchtime diners prep taste buds for the piquant curry-chicken sandwich with chutney and toasted almonds ($9.25), or sink teeth into the half-pound Angus burger, which arrives atop a portuguese sweet roll ($9). The penne pesto mingles grilled chicken with roasted red peppers in a pesto cream ($19), and the panko-crusted tilapia ($17) bathes in a lemon=butter sauce, much like most aristocrats. On the eatery’s outdoor patio, guests bask in a cool breeze while sipping glasses of house wine ($7) from the wine list or sending semaphore insults to birds flying overhead.
In Cafe Luna’s bustling kitchen, Chef Christopher Farrell emulsifies vinaigrettes, stuffs ravioli with the filling of the day, and slides pizzas atop a sizzling grill. Cinnamon-flecked cappuccino and glasses of house wine pair with dishes from the elegant lunch and dinner menus. The elegance exudes from dishes such as roasted-pear salad and veal saltimbocca, each meticulously plated with sprigs of fresh herbs or swirls of sauces. On the eatery’s flower-filled outdoor patio, guests bask in a cool breeze while nibbling dessert biscotti and sending semaphore insults to birds flying overhead with each table’s navy-blue umbrella.
