New Panamanian Restaurant, Esencias Panameñas, Now Open in Park View

3322 Georgia Ave, NW
3322 Georgia Ave, NW

The former Rita’s Carryout space officially opened as Esencias Panameñas (authentic Panamanian Cuisine) on Wednesday, July 22. Their website says:

“Esencias Panameñas Restaurant & Catering, unlike a typical Latin cuisine with a Caribbean flair 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”

Anyone already take a taste?
