If you have grown tired of the traditional Tex-Mex offering at local restaurants but like the Latin-American tastes in your meal, then the new Las Americas restaurant may be for you. Las Americas is a new Latin Cuisine restaurant located at the corner of Commerce and St. Charles Streets in Downtown Brenham. They offer dishes from different Central and South American countries including El Salvador, Columbia, and Cuba. One of the owners, Shannan Canales explains some of the dishes they serve and where each is from:
Canales says that the idea for the restaurant came from the travels with her husband, Junior, and the places they enjoyed eating. She says that is reflected not only in the dishes they offer, but in the look and feel of the dining area. Las Americas is holding their grand opening today (Friday) and Saturday. They are open Monday through Thursday from 11 to 8, Friday from 11 to 9, Saturday from 10 to 9 and Sunday from 10 to 8.
