La Playa Brings Caribbean Flavor to Gulf Place | Grand Opening Feb 8th

February 1, 2013 by Jill Tanner

La Playa, meaning 'the beach' in Spanish, is all new and super fresh. Set to open February 8th, La Playa will be open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner in the former location of Smiling Fish Cafe and Naked Grape. Live music will add to the atmosphere, libations will flow from the bar, and Caribbean-style cuisine will bring it all together as customers dine by the gulf.

Joe Morris, owner of Cafe Tango, along with his sons, Andrew, Operations Manager and Patrick Morris, Executive Chef, are raising the bar on beach cuisine and dining. Joe lived in the Caribbean for many years and is bringing those recipes to us here in SoWal. Stop in to experience the newest, hottest restaurant by the beach. 

[Editor's Note] The SoWal staff was invited to a private, preview tasting and everyone was impressed! With the Morris' experience, attention to detail, and such a fantastic location - it is sure to be a hit with locals and visitors.
