ITHACA, N.Y. — Luna Street Food, located at 310 Stewart Ave, will open its newest location at 106 S. Cayuga St. on Thursday October 15th at 5:00 pm. Housed within the confines of Lot 10, Luna street food will offer a full menu from 5:00 pm – 1:00 am, Tuesday through Saturday.

Where as other food entities have come and gone at Lot 10 in a more transient, temporary fashion, Luna Street food will be serving food during all hours of Lot 10’s operation.

In addition to the regular hours, Luna has laid down its roots by converting the one-time server station into an entirely self-contained micro-restaurant complete with a waiting area and counter service. Much like the current hospitality trend of hiding a speak-easy bar within a broader operation, Luna’s mini restaurant and clandestine nature aim to heighten the already burgeoning appeal of their global street food menu.

In only a few short months of operation at Stewart Avenue, Luna street food’s emphatic growth prompted owner Kevin Sullivan and chef consultant Bryan Keller to begin looking for additional locations.

Owner Kevin Sullivan and Chef Consultant Bryan Keller opened the restaurant in less than three months.

According to Sullivan “The response to our menu has been overwhelmingly positive and we were looking for ways to expand our reach into the downtown marketplace.”

While Lot 10 has regularly offered food in a variety of means and scenarios, co-owner Justin McGuire notes “Lot 10 recognizes and appreciates the value in providing a consistent, quality food program and we couldn’t be happier to have found that in Luna.”

Menu offerings at the new Luna satellite locale will include some of their most popular items such as Duck Bacon Won Tons, Pork Belly Bao Buns, Street Corn, Baja Fish Tacos and Fried Oreos.

One of Sullivan’s favorite dishes, the Pork Belly Bao Bun.

The launch date for Luna at Lot 10 will be Thursday October 15th with food and drink specials available from 5:00-7:00 pm.
