More restaurant activity going on Greenville Avenue. This time it is south of Ross Avenue and brought to us by furniture store operator, Tim Goza and will be cheffed up by Luis Medina. You might remember Medina from Komali. The name of the new restaurant that will soon open at 1418 Greenville Avenue near Bryan Street is called Palapas Seafood Bar. A palapa is a grass or tiki-style hut with open sides and a thatched roof.
The South American influenced seafood restaurant was originally to open back in December, but construction has delayed the opening. The renovation has been painstakingly taken place over the past many months, and Goza is taking precautions to preserve the historic building.
