Palms and Politics
Talk about getting the support of your hometown. Las Palmas (1318 N. Ocean Dr., Hollywood, 954-929-0550), the latest restaurant to join the party that has begun to spread along the formerly Taverna Opa-dominated Intracoastal coastline like ouzo on fire, opened with a number of political ribbon-cutters on hand, including Hollywood Mayor Mara Giulianti and the town's Chamber of Commerce president, Joe Risoli. What does their attendance say about what we can expect from this tiki-hut, waterfront Mexican eatery that specializes in catering to large groups of diners and boat traffic? Until further notice, only that the ultralarge frozen margaritas will be served until 2 a.m. and that's with the community's blessing.
