Luna Grill to Open Dana Point Location

January 2016


Luna Grill, a fast casual Mediterranean style restaurant with 21 locations in California and Texas is opening in Dana Point on January 11, 2016.

All day on January 11, 2016, 50 percent of proceeds from the new Dana Point Luna Grill located at 32525 Golden Lantern, Suite E will benefit Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC).

Subsequently from January 12 through 31, all six Orange County Luna Grill locations will conduct a ‘Round Up’ campaign, asking guests if they would like to round up their bill to benefit CHOC.

Founded in 2004, 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.”

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in Orange County and join the Dana Point community, all while supporting a wonderful facility such as Children’s Hospital Orange County,” said Sean Pourteymour, chief executive officer of Luna Grill.
