My spouse and I went to Loca Luna on a recent Monday evening. We arrived after 8, and thus any dinner crowd had thinned out. As is my habit, I’d perused the menu beforehand and was ready with my order for bison meatloaf, while my spouse ordered lobster bisque for an appetizer to be followed by the seafood platter.
Lobster bisque is one of my favorites, and I’m constantly amazed by the differences to be found among varieties. Loca Luna’s bisque is creamy and rich, with the most well-blended of lobster flavors. I’d order this as my main in a heartbeat.
The seafood platter was overall quite good. The crab cake at the center was very crispy on the outside, with good, tender crab on the inside. The shrimp, too, was perfectly cooked and covered in a complementary light sauce. The side of veggies was generous and nicely cooked, and the garlic mashed potatoes tasted scratch-made with real garlic. While the salmon was slightly overcooked, the rest of the platter made up for it.
My main of bison meatloaf was a similarly tasty experience. The sauce had notes of brown sugar, and the meat, while spongier than beef, was an interesting departure from the norm. I’d call it Southern with a twist, which is exactly what Loca Luna is going for these days.
