Las Palmas Opens at the Smith Center in Cambridge's Harvard Square

A pair of Dominican restaurants have been joined by a third, with this one being a second location in Cambridge.

According to an article in The Harvard Crimson, Las Palmas is now open within Harvard University's Smith Campus Center on Mass. Ave., taking over the space where a location of Swissbakers had been. The new outlet joins the original in Roslindale along with another at The Launchpad at MIT, and it offers such options as rice bowls, empanadas, Dominican-style hot pockets, caramel flan, tres leches cake, coffee, and tropical juices.

In addition to the new location of Las Palmas, the Smith Campus Center also has outlets of Sally's Sandwiches and Blackbird Doughnuts.
