Though not worth a special detour to the Upper West Side, Bar Luna is good for a decent meal or a drink and some snacks at the bar. With a respectable wine list and a small glassed-in cellar with hundreds of bottles, it makes for a nice place to unwind after work, while a sizable patio dining area attracts nearby residents for sunny Sunday brunches. For appetizers, briny fried oysters come crusted in cornmeal and displayed in scallop shells; angry chicken lollipops are a silly name for chicken wings on “sticks” with housemade hoisin sauce – they’re tasty enough but pretty tame. A section of pastas tempt with truffled macaroni and a tagliatelle of lamb ragu, but you’re better off skipping straight to the main plates. There you’ll find a braised short rib, almost molten and saucy, accompanied by gorgonzola polenta. Adding a small side of gently sautéed spinach completes the square meal. Night owls can dig into a bar menu that includes a saffron lamb burger.Recommended Dishes
