LUNA, a New Restaurant with a Familiar Name, to Debut in Mission District

By Cicero A. Estrella

A grand opening to coincide with San Francisco’s—as well as California’s—grand reopening.

LUNA, a modern yet timeless American brasserie, is set to open its doors and welcome diners on June 24. Located in the heart of the city’s Mission District, LUNA serves familiar dishes with an emphasis on crafted cocktails delivered with on-point service by a team of restaurant veterans led by general manager Nick De Luca, chef/partner Scott Quinn and partner Tony Marcell.


The brasserie is perfect for an intimate date night, a celebratory dinner with friends, a casual and light lunch, or a leisurely weekend brunch.

Does the LUNA name sound familiar to you? It should, as it pays homage to Luna Park, the former neighborhood institution that for more than a decade occupied the same space at 694 Valencia St. (at 18th St.)


LUNA will hold a special sneak peek by invitation on June 23, before opening to the public the following day.
