The last time we took an in-depth look at Las Palmas, former RFT food critic Ian Froeb reviewed its second location in Maplewood, an outpost that followed the model of original flagships in north county. In late September the local Mexican restaurant expanded to include a third location: Las Palmas (1901 Washington Avenue; 314-241-1557), and it's all set to serve up the best margarita in town.
The restaurant fills the space most recently occupied by J. Spain's Waffles & Wings, and it takes on the same festive look as the other locations, decked out in bright hues as colorful as its plates. From the menu, choose from a large selection of appetizers, soups and salads, chicken dishes, fish and shrimp, steak and pork, fajitas, tortas, enchiladas, chimichangas and combination platters. A lunch menu is also available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Drinks include agua frescas, Jarritos sodas, cervezas and, of course, a variety of freshly mixed margaritas. Las Palmas' Washington Avenue location is currently open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
