Luna Blu and Salt & Pepper win permanent approval for expanded outdoor seating

Two Main Street restaurants can keep using outdoor dining areas that Tiburon temporarily OK’d under now-lapsed pandemic-related carveouts.


In separate 4-0 votes on April 30, the Planning Commission updated the permits for Luna Blu and Salt & Pepper restaurants, allowing them permanent use of adjacent private properties owned by their landlord. 

Luna Blu, at 35 Main St., already had outdoor dining on its own waterfront deck but, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the restaurant was granted a temporary permit to use the adjoining private deck of offices at 39 Main St. The decks combine to seat 28 customers over 500 square feet, and the office tenants can use it when Luna Blu is closed.


Salt & Pepper, across the street at 38 Main, had patio seating and won a pandemic-era permit to expand outdoor dining between the restaurant and the Tiburon Depot welcome center, in the paseo that leads to the Cinelounge movie theater and the Main Street parking lot. The new area seats 25. The updated permit requires a barrier to outline the eating area and signs delineating where alcohol can be consumed while allowing for continued pedestrian access.
