La Luna Grill for brunch--a report

Smokey | Oct 21, 2002 02:06 PM

Sunday am, went to La Luna Grill on Connecticut just south of DuPont Circle. Had been meaning to go elsewhere, but didn't have reservation, so on a whim, decided to try this. Although i wouldn't call it a big mistake, I wouldn't return.

I ordered a veggie wrap (scrambled eggs with green pepper and cilantro wrapped in flour tortilla, salsa on side, with home fries). There was no cilantro discernible to tongue or eye, there was zuchini (not a favorite vegetable), hardly any green pepper, and the salsa was from Old El Paso. About half of the home fries were room temperature, the rest were warm, but cooled down quite quickly. The potatoes were reddish, as though cooked in a salsa or something, but no additional flavor, just color. And, worst of all, it was as though they had sat in a steam tray for the last hour or so, because there was absolutely no crispy exterior. Coffee was mediocre.

My husband had scrambled eggs (he was also underwhelmed) and French toast. He and I agreed the French toast was actually pretty tasty. The two other people we came with didn't much comment, so I'm not sure what they thought of their meals.

The coffee was mediocre.

The only bright spot besides the French toast? The waiter. He was friendly, efficient and courteous.

They had quite a line outside--for what, I'm not sure. All in all, not a place to return.
