La Palapa combines authentic Mexican home cooking with a festive bar and a warm and friendly atmosphere which makes for the perfect place to dine or celebrate any occasion! We specialize in "Mexico City style" tacos and quesadillas and regional home cooking. Our menu includes such dishes as Tacos al Pastor, Mole Negro Oaxaqueno, Salsa Pibil and many other specialties from different regions of Mexico. Our Margaritas are all made with fresh juices and are delicious, especially when you add house made hibiscus aqua fresca and a chile-piquin salted rim! We have many flavors from the traditional fresh lime to mango, blood-orange, ginger, tamarind, wild blueberry and more! Refreshing Mexican beer cocktails, such as the Michelada and the Chelada are even given special attention at La Palapa. We also have an extensive tequila selection, cocktail and beer menu. La Palapa is available for catering on or off premise. We specialize in creating menus for private parties and events.

"Meal here was most enjoyable. The mains were all well prepared. Mole sauces were excellent. Fish tacos also well prepared. The house guacamole was unremarkable and for the price should have been prepared tableside. It tasted like a premade guac that was doctored up a little bit. Nopale salad was OK - would have benefitted from more nopales. Overall food here was very well prepared and tasty and the atmosphere is very pleasant"

The cuisine is unaffectedly Old World, using slow and traditional cooking techniques. The wine list will feature reds and whites from the Loire, Alsace, and Savoie regions, as well as Badischerwiens of Germany. Located in the heart of the Central Business District, Lüke will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

"We enjoyed our meal here. The appetizers were much better than the entrees. One of the entrees, the local fish prepared almondine, was totally unremarkable. We actually had to ask for some sort of sauce to liven it up. We had four different appetizers, all of which were excellent. The desserts were also fabulous"

Founded in 1908 by the Davino family Grotta Azzurra was named for the blue grotto on the isle of Capri and designed to evoke the beauty of one of the worlds most famous caves in the world, intensified.<br><br>Enrico Caruso feasted here after performances, and Sinatra called it his one and only favorite Italian restaurant, making it the site of many a “Rat Pack” evening.<br><br>Shuttered for six years, Grotta Azzurra has now been stunningly renovated and rebirthed by a descendant renaissance for dining in Little Italy, with multi-talented chef Frank Castellana recreating the finest in Italian Cuisine.

"we arrived early - there was no one else here and we were a little suspicious. However we had an excellent meal with very attentive service. By the time we left it was beginning to fill up. Recommended"
