There is very little about Lunacy Black Market that feels familiar in the sense of a restaurant experience. But there's a lot about it that feels familiar in the more personal sense. It’s like dinner at a friend’s house. It’s hard to see how chef/owner Paul Luna could possibly make money here: The prices are so low, it appears money is of no interest. Luna's cooking style is deceptively simple -- a potato soup, flavored slightly with garlic and stippled with fresh thyme. Atlanta has few true originals, and sometimes the only antidote to the monotony of predictable upscale food is home-cooked meals and visits to Buford Highway. Lunacy Black Market provides another kind of respite -- a restaurant so steeped in personality, it borders on madness.
