Out to eat

A few ladies went to lunch to say goodbye to our friend Emily.  We thought we would give Luna Bistro a try and we weren't disappointed.

The gazpacho was delicious.  Perfectly season and fresh.  The bell pepper really shined in this blissfully  simple cold summer soup.

The cheese, fruit and yogurt appetizer.  With local honey and fresh bread, the combination of the fruits and Greek yogurt was perfect.

Tilapia tacos.  An interesting take on a taco, the tilapia was coated in corn and wrap in naan.  I was told is was delightful.

The turkey sandwich.  How can you go wrong with quality bread, turkey, fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes?  

Even though I try to stay away from gluten, and I certainly could have here, this sandwich looked to good to pass up.  And it was.  This vegetable sandwich had asparagus, zucchini, yellow squash, red onion and white cheddar cheese.  The combination reminded me of a wonderful pizza similar to this that I had in Provo, Utah at Pizzeria 712.  The bread help nail this sandwich.  It was hearty, but soft and didn't over power the delicate vegetables.

Flourless chocolate torte.  Smooth and delicious, but I was a little disappointed with the quality of the chocolate.  Maybe I am wrong, but flourless chocolate torte should only be made with Valrhona.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Wontons.  Warm, crispy on the outside and silky smooth on the inside, these were very good.  Although the honey was nice, it was almost a little too much for this treat.
