Today's Groupon tickles your taste buds' fancy with playful fare from around the world: $20 gets you $40 worth of lunch, dinner, or cocktails at Luna Park, a hip eatery that's part lively bar, and part casual lounge rolled into one mauve-and-amber-encrusted package. Cozy up with a date in one of Luna Park's intimate booths, or magnanimously pick up the tab at lunch. Luna Park's extensive menu covers every meal with a warm blanket of comfort food. For lunch sink into a portobello sandwich with hazelnut romesco ($11) or vegan white bean cassoulet ($15.25). Or tantalize your taste buds for dinner with breaded pork cutlet stuffed with mushrooms and gruyere cheese, topped with an apple cranberry sauce and served with mashed potatoes and string beans $18.75. Save room for dessert: Luna Park lets you make your own s'mores for $8.25 or, for the same price, serves you chocolate espresso pot de crème.
The folks at Luna Park pride themselves on mixology (referring to mixing drinks, but not ruling out phat beats), and have an extensive list of original cocktails—such as Kick A** Mai Tai and volcanic scorpion punch bowl for two, and an award winning Mojito—in addition to an approachable wine and beer list.
The Los Angeles Times loves the imaginative fare and romantic atmosphere at Luna Park:
- The fun, funky atmosphere at Luna Park calls up the lush vibe of a bygone era of decorative opulence mixed with a contemporary vintage flair...But it's the food that keeps customers coming back for more. As eclectic as the decor, the American comfort food turned out by Luna Park's kitchen staff is hearty and imaginative. – Los Angeles Times
- I've always been a fan of Luna Park. Get a booth for something a little more romantic. But overall, the place is great for groups...And try the desserts and drinks. Both are amazing! – OpenTable.com user, 9/7/2009
- I don't hand out many 5 star reviews, but i have to say, I love this place. I've never had anything that wasn't delicious. My personal fav's [sic] are the Mac and Cheese and the Flatiron Steak. – Garrett B., Yelp
- You can't help but love a place that wraps their PBR cans in paper bags. Luna Park definitely felt like a home away from home because of its decidedly San Francisco trappings. – Patrick K., Yelp
Luna Park offers an eclectic menu of French and Italian eats accented by notes of American and Asian cuisine. From within the warm, jewel-toned eatery, satisfying, house-cooked meals of rigatoni with spicy lamb ragu and pizzas topped with wild mushroom and brie arrive to tables artfully plated. Ample seating at the bar invites perusal of the drink menu, which overflows with local and international wines, frosty beers, and chandelier-swirled signature cocktails.
