Loving Luna Park

After enjoying a couple of meals at the bar in the past, my wife and I went to Luna Park (on LaBrea near Wilshire) the other night with four friends. The place was packed and I was afraid they would keep us waiting, but we were quickly seated and had a great time.

We started with two appetizers - the goat cheese fondue and the tuna poke. Both were very good and perfect for sharing. (Fondue is sort of fun if the cheese is something other than Velveeta.)

Four of us had the grilled chicken with brussels sprouts as a main couse. The other two had the pork cutlet. The chicken is fine, but it's the brussels sprouts that make the dish. They're apparently done in honey and served with toasted hazelnuts. Hard to explain why, but it all goes together really well. The cutlets were sort of thin and crunchy and another good choice. Finally, the corkage was only $12.50 per bottle.

I highly recommend it to those who haven't tried it, even though it's dark and sort of loud.
