Las Palmas, a Tex-Mex restaurant from a longtime Dallas dining family, will be headed to Uptown in February.
The new eatery will debut at 2708 Routh Street in the space formerly occupied by Social House, CultureMap reports. Heading up the new venture is Sina Heidari from the Heidari family, which is responsible for the Kennedy Room, Bowen House, Old Warsaw, and St. Martin’s on Lower Greenville. Heidari’s Tex-Mex joint will be fashioned after a cool 1950s Beverly Hills vibe, even sporting a similar pastel pink color as the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel. He told the publication that his brother Pasha Heidari (Bowen House, Kennedy Room) will lend a hand with interiors. For those familiar with Bowen House, expect something similarly stunning while maintaining its coziness.
Las Palmas’ focus will be on classic, affordable Tex-Mex — think fajitas, tortillas made-in house, and probably some iteration of enchilada combo plates with tamales, tacos, and more typical Tex-Mex dishes. As far as drinks go, frozen margaritas will take center stage along with a menu of cocktails created by nearby Bowen House.
Las Palmas is slated to open mid-February. Stay tuned for an official opening date and hours of operation.
