S’more Luna Park


Luna Park is definitely my go-to place for a romantic, easy dinner with Abe. I’ve had this Groupon deal saved for a little while, waiting for the right time. Since I thought/hoped I’d be working on a TV Show Wednesday, I hadn’t made any plans – so last night was perfect!


The Prix-Fixe Dinner meal (offered every single night) is 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts from their menu


We split our starters…


…Roasted Cauliflower with Calabrian Chiles + Capers (even better than it was the last time we were here) and Grilled Artichoke


The latter came with Lemon Aioli; I didn’t use any since it was already pretty greasy. This ‘choke was actually really tough and skimpy.


Not at all disappointing, however, was my main dish…


…Ale Marinated Chicken with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, and Sage Jus


I ate every savory + sweet bite, save a couple pieces of skin…


…plus some of the crust + noodles from Abe’s Mac n Cheese with Broccoli


We got a dessert to go…


…I dominated most of this one, which CANNOT be wrapped up in a box


These make-your-own s’mores were featured on the Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate


Sad to say, they were definitely NOT the best thing I’ve ever eaten. In fact, they were the WORST s’mores I’ve ever had!

The graham crackers were flimsy…


…most of the marshmallows got stuck to the side of the pot…


…the chocolate was like Hershey’s syrup. It was a hot mess…


…but I still finished it off.


Gotta stop ordering dishes I see on the Food Network!!!  Other disappointments – Dorowot, Chicken Meatball, Chicken Pot Pie

But I’ve had some winners too – Garlic Noodles, White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter, and of course, Umami Burger!

What have your experiences been with media-hyped-up meals?

    yum! i have that same groupon waiting to be put to good use! working in PR, i’m confident in saying that some of the reviews are probably true, while others are totally contrived. the thing is, you can’t really tell which is which! guess that means you’ll just have to keep on food testing 🙂

    bummer about the luna park smores! i’ve never had them but i have had the deep fried apple pie and that was pretty decent. on the appetizer front, the goat cheese fondue is always a winner in my book.

    I saw their s’mores featured on Food Network- what a bummer that they don’t live up to the hype!
    Everything else looks sensational though. And for the price with your Groupon, how can you go wrong?

    Too bad about those s’mores!
    Austin and I hunted down the “Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake” at an NYC restaurant that was featured on that Food Network show, and it was seriously amazing! (and that’s coming from a girl who doesn’t even like marshmallows…) I love Umami burgers, too!!

    But, I did try a hyped-up breakfast restaurant during my last trip to NYC, and it was the WORST breakfast I’ve ever had– and probably the priciest, to boot. I guess it’s hit or miss.
