This branch of the local Las Palmas chain is more sophisticated than the others in the city. Appetizers include empanadas, arepas, ceviches, and guacamole prepared tableside. The traditional steak taco entree was smoky and good, topped with queso añejo and chipotle jam; other large plates include pan-roasted mahi-mahi over purple-potato puree and lamb shank braised in banana leaves. A jumbo margarita easily carried me through my meal—that and the strolling guitarist and pleasant weather on the charming back patio.
