Dish of the Week: Hongos Coca at Eclipse di Luna
The I-85 bridge collapse. The buckled section of roadway on I-20 that sent a motorcyclist airborne. The pollen count. And let’s not forget politics and the District 6 special election. That’s just what’s happened locally in the last few weeks.
Need a break from the news of late? Escape to Eclipse di Luna and break bread instead. Make it the Hongos Coca, a crispy flatbread with a fiesta of fixins’.
Roasted mushrooms (the “hongos”) bring deep, earthy flavor. Scallions and basil brighten things up, while zig-zag striping of goat cheese crema give this small plate big personality.
For 20 years now, Eclipse di Luna has helped Atlantans forget about their worries and have a bit of fun. And right now, we can’t think of any better place to dodge bumper-to-bumper traffic on Piedmont Road than at Eclipse di Luna’s cheery hideaway on Miami Circle. Hongos Coca in one hand, a house caipirinha in the other – Ah! Life is good.
