Luna Grill Opens First Inland Empire Locations

July 2016

Fresh Mediterranean Innovator Opens Spots in Temecula, Eastvale

San Diego-based Luna Grill ( is adding its first locations in the Inland Empire with the opening of restaurants at The Promenade Temecula on July 25 (40756 Winchester Road, Temecula, 92591) and in Eastvale the week of August 1 at (12523 Limonite Ave Suite 490, Eastvale, 91752).

These newest locations mark the 26th and 27th restaurants for Luna Grill, currently offering fast casual Mediterranean fare with locations through Southern California and Dallas, Texas and recently named one of the country’s “Hot 100 Brands” by Fast Casual Magazine.

“Luna Grill has been anxiously anticipated by our shoppers and community for some time,” said Kym Espinosa, Director of Marketing of Promenade Temecula. “We know that the restaurant’s focus on fresh and healthy cuisine, paired with a great contemporary and casual setting will be extremely popular in this market,” Espinosa said.

Luna Grill offers authentic Mediterranean cuisine such as signature kabob plates, gourmet salads, appetizers including hummus and falafel, wraps, desserts, craft beer and wine in a contemporary setting. All foods, marinades and sauces are crafted with care daily from scratch and meals are made fresh to order and served to the table with genuine cutlery and tableware. A cross between a fast casual and full service sit-down restaurant, Luna Grill combines the best of both worlds and has created the concept of “Luxe Casual.”

These newest restaurants feature the company’s latest iteration of its design and interior style called “Luna 3.0” — representing the company’s commitment to the evolution of its brand and feel since its first location opened in 2004. “Luna 3.0 is mix of vintage yet modern, with organic elements throughout. Distressed finishes are paired with modern pieces to create a cozy, comfortable and fresh feeling,” said Nicole Abraham, vice president of marketing for Luna Grill.
