La Parrilla is now open in Olathe

La Parilla has opened in Olathe.
  • La Parrilla has opened in Olathe.
A staple of Massachusetts Street in Lawrence has come southeast to Olathe. The second La Parrilla - a Latin American restaurant known for rice bowls and empanadas - opened at 1197 S. Strang Line Rd. (119th & Strang Line) earlier this month.

Co-owner Subarna Bhattachan opened the first La Parrilla with Alejandro Lule in 1999, since introducing Zen Zero (economical Southeast Asian fusion) and Genovese (North Italian cuisine and wood-fired pizzas) to the restaurant scene in Lawrence.

For those who have made the trek to Lawrence, the menu is similar if a bit larger. The same can be said for the new space in Olathe, which seats 150 people and 40 more on the patio (the few outdoor tables at the Lawrence location are always full). There's a full coterie of tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas, but the rice bowls and house guacamole are among the most popular dishes. Vegetarians can eat well here with tofu rice bowls and portabella and roasted-pepper empanadas. Those on a gluten-free diet will also not feel limited.

The restaurant has 20 kinds of tequila and lime margaritas. Pitchers of those margaritas are $12 on Friday and Saturday, while lime margaritas are just $2 on Mondays. For those who want a nonalcoholic drink, La Parilla has Sidral (apple soda), aguas frescas, horchata and Brazilian lemonade (lime juice, coconut milk and ginger).

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday.
