Newcomers to Atlanta may not know Luna, to whom words like "legendary" and "bad boy" have been routinely applied. He first arrived here as chef of Bice in the early '90s, as I recollect, then opened Luna Si, Cafe Mystique, Eclipse di Luna and Loca Luna. A year ago we reported that he was writing a bilingual children's book, Luna Needs a Miracle, which will be available next month.
Known for rather temperamental behavior in his restaurants -- ejecting diners who asked for salt, for example -- he also became infamous for dancing on table tops in very few clothes. Diners tolerated the behavior because his food was so extraordinary.
We'll keep you posted when we hear more.
