    For those of you, and us, who miss Luna Del Mar, I've got great news. Cantina Laredo opened in the last couple of days at Grand Boulevard, and the food is grayt! As are the margaritas. The only bad news is that somehow the word is already out and tonight when we tried to make reservations the choices were 5:30 or 8:30.

    We went with some other folks at 5:30 and the place was already hoppin'. By the time we left it was packed, and everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time.

    We will be going back many, many times.

    Not to rain on sowal's parade, but I am hoping this one is better than the ones here in Dallas. Of course, for a Mex restaurant to take reservations is a bonus! I am also sure they do not have JUMBO's. ;-)

    Reservations. Mexican restaurant.

    Do these belong in the same sentence? :lol:



    On the other hand, the Frog household is one that still misses Luna del Mar and will now drive regularly to either Los Antojitos or La Rumba (sorry, we're not Cocos fans) for our Mexican fix. Nice to hear there's another option.

    I had hit or miss experiences at Luna del Mar. Is this new restaurant operated by the same people, or did you make the comparison because it is Tex Mex?

    Grand Blvd is really growing and will make Mack Bayou even more attractive to many home buyers.

    SJ- That's right, comparison made because both are upscale Tex Mex. They're not operated by the same people.

    Publix at Sandestin is part of it. Look at all of the stores to the immediate west of Publix, and that is a portion of Grande Blvd., which is still growing.

    Los Antojitos is in PCB - don't remember exactly where - sorry and LaRumba is part of a chain that is on 98 between the outlet mall and Bass Pro Shop - on the south side where the Destin Commissary use to be and also Corkys BBQ.

    Has anyone heard whether or not PF Changs is still going to be part of Grand Blvd? They used to mention it as one of the restaurants, but I haven't heard lately. I just went to a PF Changs in Houston a few days ago and loved the food and the prices, so I'm hoping that one is really going in here.

    Los Antojitos is in Panama City, not PCB. Cross the bridge on 98, go straight at the light where would turn left to go to 23rd (i.e. stay on 98), and it will be on your right maybe 1/4 to 1/2 mile past the light.

    The place to watch for new national businesses coming into the area is monster.com, and I seem to remember seeing that PF Chang's was indeed looking to hire management in the Florida, Pensacola/Panama City (location: Destin) job market a few weeks back.

    Heard more great compliments on Canitna Laredo today. It seems that they were packed last night, as I'm sure they will be for a long time if they keep the food tasty and the service good.
