Though the Space Race captivated some, it was the Spacetaurant Race to convert the moon into an eatery oasis for interstellar travelers that truly captured the world's heart. Sample America's contribution to Earth's culinary complexion with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of French and Italian fare and cocktails at Luna Park on South La Brea.
Luna Park's extensive menu covers every meal with a warm blanket of comfort food. For lunch, drop enamel-coated anchors into a turkey burger with gruyère cheese and avocado ($15) or braised boneless short ribs with garlic mashed potatoes and kale ($19.75). Hard-boiled brunchers munch no further than bourbon-cinnamon french toast, topped with wise-talking berries and beat-up cream ($12). Or tantalize taste buds for dinner with breaded pork cutlet stuffed with mushrooms, white cheddar cheese, and gruyère cheese ($20.25). For dessert, customers can make their own s'mores, recalling childhood camping experiences or adult attempts to launch a graham-cracker-based currency ($8.50). Luna Park’s mixology mavens also dispense an extensive list of original cocktails, such as the Kick A** mai tai ($12.50), the Volcanic Scorpion punch bowl for two ($23), and an award-winning mojito ($10), providing fuel to jump-start conversations or vodka-powered car engines.
Luna Park is a hip eatery that's part lively bar and part casual lounge rolled into one mauve-and-amber-encrusted package. Cozy up with a dinner date in one of Luna Park's intimate booths, or magnanimously pick up the tab at lunch.
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.
