FUSION CAFÉ WITH A WIDE APPEAL: Red String, located on Federico Boyd Ave and 52 St, offers Japanese, Mexican, and Italian cuisine along with seafood all inside its chic terrace. With its varied menu and its comfortable setting, its an ideal place for a mid-afternoon coffee rendezvous with friends or a low-key open-air dinner.

While the indoor seating stands out for its bookstore-like design, Red String’s most appealing attribute is its very singular outside seating overlooking Federico Boyd Ave. With a chandelier hanging from the glass ceiling, and a tree branching out from one of its corners, the open-air terrace provides a refreshing and comfortable sitting area where you can enjoy the warm Panamanian weather. As the sun sets, the dim candle-lighting creates a soothing atmosphere, ideal for a relaxing night out.

The café’s menu offers sushi, salads, sandwiches, seafood and vegetarian dishes, all kosher and designed with the eating balance inculcated by the teachings of the Kabala. There is no meat or chicken on the menu, which according to tradition cannot be properly digested when mixed with cheese, found throughout its menu. Its Red String salad has become a favorite, which consists of a bed of green leaves with two types of dried tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, black olives, baby tomatoes, and a special house dressing.
