Ed. Note: In April 2014 the owner of Rita’s Carryout passed away.

Esencias Panameñas website says:

“Esencias Panameñas, LLC, unlike a typical Latin cuisine restaurant, will provide a unique combination of authentic Panamanian food at value pricing with a fun and entertaining atmosphere. Chef Yadira is a native from Panama and she pays tribute to her place of birth through traditional dishes made with staple food products, such as corn, coconut, culantro (not cilantro) and rice.

Each quarter we will feature a historic event, a holiday observed, or a tradition upheld in Panama. In addition, we will also feature a fruit, dish, or bake good in season during that quarter.”

You can see their menu here.

Updates when they get closer to opening in May.
