THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Luna Park Restaurant Review

: The sister restaurant to Luna Park in San Francisco continues a successful run in a roomy, high-ceilinged space on La Brea Avenue. A large bar occupies one side of the restaurant; you can choose to sit at a table or in the private booths (where you can close the drapes) to enjoy the fun, California bistro-style fare. The noisy, dark setting --- crystal chandeliers dress up an inviting, casual scene --- draws a young clientele for the lively bar scene and a value-oriented menu. One can start with meatballs in a tomato-based arrabiata sauce, blue crab cakes, or gnocchi with wild mushrooms in a pesto cream sauce. Follow with large plates like jerk-marinated half chicken with roasted Brussels sprouts, seafood chowder with a base of lobster broth, or red wine-braised short ribs with jalapeño-cheddar grits. There’s also a variety of salads, pizza and pasta. Desserts, which include “interactive” items like make-your-own s’mores, can be on the heavy side. For drinks, Luna Park excels at strong libations like strawberry mojitos or spicy margaritas.
