Luna Park, ho hum...

Slow Foodie | Sep 9, 2006 12:15 AM

Took the 14 year old to Luna Park last night thinking he'd enjoy it. The service was spacey and erratic and the table seemed on the sticky side. I started with a nice mojito--is $8.50 steep for a cocktail or am I just way over the hill? Teenpup had some sort of pomegranite concoction which was delicious. We started with pretty good fries and a decent roasted artichoke with aioli. Bread and water weren't replenished and son scarfed bread--which looked mediocre, before I could taste. I had jerk chicken--dry with undercooked asparagus and good roasted (but underseasoned) sweet potatoes. My date ordered mushroom ravioli which was ultra greasy and acrid tasting. A real loser. Dessert was a "make your own s'more" thing which was a ramekin of broiled marshmallows and one of melted chocolate served with some boring packaged graham crackers. I remember really liking this place the other times I've been and thinking it would please a teenager. This was either an off night or there's been quite a decline. Too bad, cute space and cute concept.
