Luna's Kitchen & Bar
« on: May 03, 2019, 11:38:00 AM »
I just stumbled across Luna's Kitchen & Bar on Seamless. Does Anyone know anything about this place?They claim to be farm to table on their Yelp page (I'm suspicious of that claim). The menu looks pretty good and they have quite a few healthy options.

i've walked by a few times, and actually walked in to take a look (between meals, so didn't stay). a nice vibe, dark but not too dark. entrance on the side street, and yes, the menu looks good, so hoping to try soon.

this leads me to ask what's the deal with this property? That's the old Arepa Lady space, no? I thought that lot was being developed, and that's why all those businesses were being kicked out. But there are new businesses going in there.

Anyone got information, or was I just misinformed?

you're right...the arepa lady and the tattoo place both said they were being forced out, and i remember reading stories about a seven story mixed use building. maybe people thought twice about relatively expensive residences 25 feet from an elevated subway on that particular stretch of avenue?

the brunch photos on Yelp look pretty good. i know photos don't tell the whole story, but the eggs benedict look legit.

Yes, they do. I think it's worth a try!

Odd. Nice owner photos, but no reviews. Next to Luna “Health Spa”. Very Bizarre. Can’t wait for the Health Dept visit.

Makes me think it was done to force out old tenants to get higher paying tenants.  Seems fishy that everyone had to leave because the building was going to be developed (at least, that's what we thought here), to be replaced with other businesses.

No doubt those business people who had to relocate took a financial hit, and I'm not so sure we can be confident every business was even able to relocate.

less odd to have no reviews than to have four reviews, all by the owner, as French Roast Bakery (see other thread) has....
