The open sign is almost visible.
The soft hum of a crowded restaurant is almost audible.
The waft of Howard’s delicious steamed Peking duck confit bao almost tickles my nose.
And the sweet nectar of Ken’s Mezcal “In Fashion” cocktail almost warms my mouth.
December started off with the long-awaited arrival of our t-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags. Below the crew models the goods joined by our dear Ashley Mellinger, showing off her Lucky Luna bag on the way to grocery shop.
We finished sealing the bar and the tables, not without a few hiccups, of course.
We also enjoyed what some may consider the most enjoyable aspect of opening a restaurant— the samples!!!!
Our mascot, Drake, has kept us entertained and offered comic relief from the stresses. He also made an excellent nap buddy for the times when exhaustion takes over.
The most enjoyable part we must say, has been putting the finishing touches on Lucky Luna, a place that at times seemed to exist only in our minds and through our descriptions that may have been incoherent to anyone but us.
We are in the final stretch to prying open Lucky Luna’s doors to the world. Keep your eyes and ears perked for the grand announcement!!! And don’t forget to follow us @LuckyLunaNY on Twitter and Instagram for updates and current happenings.
