About Us

The Crew:

We are proud of our Mexican and Taiwanese heritage. Lucky Luna is the amalgamation of the beautiful balance we have discovered between our two cultures and flavored it with a touch of California and Brooklyn. The logo is a combination of two symbols. The Chinese “shou” is said to stand for longevity and fortune. The “luna” guides both the push and pull of the tides, conserving the equilibrium of forces.


Ken Ho, Chef/Owner

Ken Ho’s first job was working in his parents’ Taiwanese restaurant in the Bay Area of California and he hasn’t left the food and beverage industry since. Ken’s experience extends to every sector of the restaurant world, from serving to managing to bar tending in some of California and New York’s most renowned Michelin star/James Beard award-winning establishments. His most recent adventure is at the helm of Lucky Luna, a Taiwanese and Mexican street-style inspired restaurant that he co-owns with his wife.  Ho has returned to his roots, exploring the Taiwanese food of his youth, recreating and reinventing it alongside the Mexican dishes nostalgic to his partner.

Marisa Cadena, General Manager/Owner

Marisa’s first job was in high school washing dishes at a small Italian restaurant. She quickly moved up to delivery girl, prep cook and waitress. Marisa has worked in many capacities in cafés, bars and restaurants across the country and in southern Mexico. Aside from an expansive knowledge of the food service industry, Marisa has devoted years to arts and educational programming, youth development and sustainability organizations. As an artist herself, Marisa’s goal is to create a space for local artists to share, develop, and showcase their work as well as provide a warm environment for guests to enjoy and learn about Mexican and Taiwanese fare, make friends with their neighbors, and to simply unwind.
