With wicker chairs, an abundance of natural light, and a covered patio lined with potted palms, a dinner at Khaluna feels like you’ve stepped off Lyndale Ave. into an exclusive island retreat for the rich and famous. The decor’s light color palette is just as colorful as most of the dishes, like the tropical fruit salad garnished with fresh flowers and multi-hued rainbow rice.
Be sure to try the sakoo, mushroom-stuffed dumplings made from tapioca pearls, and the bucatini talay, which combines pasta with a Thai basil and tom yum ragout. Cocktails are equally tropical—there’s an Old Fashioned made with palm sugar, and non-alcoholic drinks with big spa energy, like sparkling water flavored with jasmine, lavender, and chamomile.
