The Dish: Pampas Debuts Tonight, Brings Buzz South

New, 2 comments

For the first time in recent memory (probably since Red Lantern in November), the Peninsula gets a rather high-profile opening tonight with the arrival of Pampas, the 230-seat churrasco-style restaurant in Palo Alto. Seeing as how it's always fun to compare the before and after shots, check out the gallery of photos sent along by the Pampas folks. Other notable facts: the flat fee for the churrasco dinner will set you back $44, a la carte also available, the cachaças collection is supposedly very attractive, and for better or worse—we're still not sure how we feel about the whole "consulting" trend—big name consultants are aplenty (Marisa Churchill, Mark Bright, Dominic Venegas). In any event, a splash has been made on the Peninsula, which in itself is a feat for both Pampas and its PR blitz. 529 Alma Street, Palo Alto, (650) 327-1323
