Three veterans of the San Francisco restaurant scene are opening Lucky Luna, described as a "Mexican and East Asian street-style" restaurant, with fruit-forward cocktails, at 167 Nassau Avenue in Greenpoint. Chef Howard Jang met bar man Ken Ho while working at Boulevard, while partner Marisa Cadena met Ho at Palomino. Lucky Luna, we're told, is reflective of their backgrounds, and the menu will riff on street food served in Oaxaca and Taipei, with South America and Asian influences — think Peking-style duck baos and sweet bowls of dulche de leche rice topped with roasted apples. The gang is almost halfway to their fund-raising goal on Kickstarter, with three weeks to go. Check out more on the food and the space, straight ahead.
