Luna Red Restaurant Review

: Seasonality and sustainability are celebrated front and center at Luna Red, where chef Shaun Behrens creates such eclectic, global dishes as shellfish ceviche, skirt steak with chimichurri and lamb gyros with tzatziki, as well as oyster po’ boys. Specials have included a banh mi-style pork sandwich with house-made pickles, and a spinach salad with warm bacon-fat vinaigrette and crispy onion strings. Vegetarians don’t get shorted, with choices ranging from roasted vegetable sandwiches to Brazilian black bean fritters. For dessert, ask about the daily flavors of sorbets and gelatos, or tuck into a spiced-apple pot de crème. Luna Red also extends its market philosophy with “farm-to-glass” libations using top-shelf brands (many of them organic) and ingredients like fresh juices and homemade mixers. The restaurant hosts live music on Thursday evenings.
