Last Thursday, I had a business dinner, of sorts, with someone from out of town. We wanted to take her somewhere local and unique. Luna fit the bill perfectly.
I almost always order the same thing, unless I'm feeling indulgent. The mega veggie salad with tuna. Well, Thursday night I was feeling frisky, so I opted for shrimp instead of tuna. I know, I'm a rebel. This salad is a huge pile of spring mix, topped with chopped zucchini, shredded carrots, red onion, artichoke hearts, Parmesan, and I always opt for the house made balsamic vinaigrette. (All of their dressings are phenomenal. Their cosmic is sort of legendary. It's like ranch's beautiful older sister, who everyone loves and it gives ranch a complex.)
The shrimp were large and cooked and seasoned perfectly. The few shrimp did look a little sad atop this massive salad, but believe me, I was plenty full when dinner was over. The vegetables were so fresh and crisp. This truly makes for the perfect summer dinner.
Obviously, I will be returning to Luna soon.
What restaurant serves your favorite salad? What is more important when it comes to a restaurant, food or atmosphere?
