Luna Grill continues its expansion trajectory with its first-ever licensing deal for a location in Sycuan Casino’s $226 million new development, slated to open later this spring.

Luna Grill will have a location inside Sycuan’s “UnCommons,” a fast casual dining experience featuring five San Diego restaurants and a variety of cuisines for guests to enjoy. Luna Grill joins other iconic brands such as Phil’s BBQ, Hodad’s, The Hangry Slice and Lucha Libre Gourmet Taco Shop in the new dining hall.

“We are thrilled to have signed our first licensing agreement with such a notable, home town partner like Sycuan Casino. We are impressed with the best in class experience that Sycuan Casino provides and it’s an honor to bring Luna Grill to the UnCommons,” says Luna Grill co-founder Sean Pourteymour.

Luna Grill is a pioneer of the “Luxe Casual” movement, providing fast, wholesome food that the whole family can enjoy. Founded in 2004, Luna Grill offers fresh Mediterranean cuisine such as signature kabob plates, gourmet salads, appetizers including hummus and falafel, wraps, desserts, craft beer and wine in a contemporary setting. The concept has now grown to 48 locations in Southern California, Inland Empire and the Dallas Fort Worth area and the Sycuan spot will be the company’s 50th restaurant with the 49th scheduled to open later this month in the 4S Ranch area of San Diego.

“The UnCommons is not your average fast-casual market,” says John Dinius, general manager at Sycuan Casino. “We are working hard to create unparalleled dining experiences by collaborating with local San Diego restaurants and adding our own twist on classic dishes.”
