Fodor's Expert Review La Luna
It’s hard to know what’s more impressive—the view or the cuisine at this restaurant without walls, where the sun melts into the Pacific and La Luna (the moon) takes center stage. Innovative starters range from Gorgonzola-and-tomato tarts to honey-garlic calamari. For something tender and moist, try the Parmesan chicken, the plantain-coconut mahimahi, or the ginger-and-panko-crusted tuna. The five-course tasting and wine pairing ($75) is a bargain considering the fine blends that are served. Portions tend to be on the small side, but the service is outstanding. Happy hour, from 4 to 6, includes discounted tapas and cocktails. If you want to learn the secrets of the young prodigy chef, reserve a spot in the cooking class.
