Can I walk in at Luna without a reservation?
Yes of course. There is plenty of room if you'd like to sit and taste our wine, mead or hard kombucha samplers or have a pour of one of our many wines made on location. Depending on how busy we are, there may be a chance of getting lightfare food if you like. It just depends.
What if I call to make a reservation on the same day I want to come to eat?
If you want to make a reservation for 6pm on Friday and call at 9am that Friday, you will not receive the full food menu. We need at least 24 hour advance for it to be a reservation. This helps us limit food waste and valuable time. And it guarantees you the best possible food experience on the planet! Well, let's just say you won't be disappointed.
A friend told me your place is amazing and "unconventional." He loved the food and wine but said it's the whole experience that's amazing but couldn't put his finger on it. Can you elaborate?
I think your friend pretty much answered it, but sure we'll take a shot. "Unconventional," yes, in the sense of location for sure. We are located on a 10 acre parcel off a dirt road in a valley of Northeastern PA. Unconventional in so far as the kinds of plates on our menu. It's all original vegan-vegetarian. You won't find a recipe for a plate on the menu online or in a book or magazine. Another thing is, all ingredients are made from scratch. Vinegar, we make it. The cheese, we make it. The breads and so on. The last thing is we grow the vegetables. Not all. We count on our farmer friends who use the best practices, that have the same vision of small farming that we do. Last thing, we're unconventional based on the fact that it's just two people running most everything. John has the front end of the house, makes the drinks, serves the drinks, and Chef Doreen takes on the colossal challenge of making and delivering the food plates. This vastly limits the number of tables we can take at once. But it's exactly where we want it. The emphasis is on quality and not quantity. Folks can stay as long as they like. We don't push people out to seat new folks at the table. So there's something intangible when you put all that together under the same roof. Amazing? We think so too.
