First and foremost, our food is all scratch-made. From the bread to the vinegar-wine reductions, the cheese, the yogurt, pasta, marinades, sauce, even the herbal salts. It's always a challenge but we love the end product. The kitchen offers simply complex dishes consisting of plant-based whole food. There is no reason why a vegetable dish can't be delicious AND hearty, the vegetable simple yet succulent. The menu is vegan & vegetarian. The thing is, our ancestors who ate all-vegetable dishes on a given day didn't call it vegan or vegetarian. It was dinner. Here at Luna, the labels fade and real flavors emerge. Some of the food is grown on site using sustainable organic practices and the rest is sourced locally from farmers markets. Our friends take great care in growing vegetables and are as fascinated as we are by the microbes in the soil and the practices taken to make those microbes happy. Composting is a way of life! Especially in the kitchen.
We highly encourage people who come to eat at Luna to share plates with the rest of the table. The staff on our best day consists of four people. Plates are made fresh and not held under heat lamps or warmers. When they're ready they come out, they come out 1-2 at a time, sometimes three, depending. Sharing plates will allow you to experience more of the menu. It is not uncommon for a table of 3-4 to order every dish on the menu. Today there were eight items to choose from. Sharing plates are provided. Sharing becomes a communal experience and by the time you've finished your food you will feel restored in every way and some. Of course, you are welcome to order your own plates and enjoy it all the same.
