Holiday Dinner at Eclipse di Luna

My friends and I did our annual holiday dinner at Eclipse di Luna by Perimeter Mall this week. For big gatherings, this place works very well for a number of reasons. First of all, they were easily able to accommodate our group of 16. Second, the tapas menu is great for large groups as you can try many different things. And lastly, the atmosphere is fun and loud, so we didn’t feel like our boisterous group was infringing on other diners.

The menu at Eclipse di Luna is two sided, one side is meets and the other side is veggie. Each side of our table took turns ordering, and our side, being mostly guys only ordered from the meat side. While I don’t remember the exact names, there were plates of calamari, seviche, empanadas, steak skewers, pork skewers, and the white sausage. We even splurged with an order of the paella. When it came time for the other half of the table to order (mostly female), I saw plates of tomatoes, potatoes, cheese and hummus. I have been a number of times with Lady Steakhead, and the same pattern occurs there as well, so I wasn’t too surprised. We devoured everything we ordered, and even ordered a few seconds on somethings (the white sausage and the steak skewers made encores on our end).

The holidays are a great excuse for having these kinds of dinners. Lives get busy. Some folks are married, some are single, some have kids, and it’s very difficult to get everyone together that often these days. So when we do, we want a place that will allow us to laugh out loud, provide some decent grub, and offer a festive environment. And a place that doesn’t put a major crimp in the wallet during the holidays is a big plus as well. Eclipse di Luna delivered on all fronts.

Steakhead Recommends: Yes (especially for big groups)

Steakhead, I'm interested in the idea of tapas for large groups, but doesn't it get weird at the end when you split the bill? Does everybody agree to split it up the middle or do you try to figure out who ordered what?

Hey Marty- It can get weird. We divvy up between drinkers and non-drinkers, but not by food, and I think everyone is reltaively cool with that. Our group has done this dinner for 5 or 6 years now, so we sort of all know the drill. But even in non-tapas restaurants, splitting the bill with large groups can get hairy if someone feels they're getting jobbed.
