The Southlands shopping center is an excellent area in Aurora, Colorado that is filled with fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options. However, I was just recently thinking that they could use a new restaurant that is locally owned and not a chain. With the recent opening of the Latin Eatery and Cantina, “Platea”, my wish was granted! I was just given the opportunity to try this great restaurant, and I was definitely not disappointed.
This cantina and eatery is locally owned and operated, with the friendliest owners and managers. The decor and atmosphere is perfect for a relaxing, and delicious meal. The menu is very versatile, and combines great elements across various Latin Cuisines. This restaurant is also a very fun cantina and one of the partners is a very experienced mixologist, so make sure to try some of the various craft beers, wines, or amazing margaritas. Be warned that the margaritas are quite substantial, and each one has at least two shots of tequila! Another great perk of this restaurant is the amazing prices, and happy hour deals. This great local business is delicious, fun, and an excellent value, so make sure to check it out.
The Southlands entertainment area is just one of the many great perks of living in Aurora, and this restaurant definitely adds some great flavor to this district. Colorado is such an amazing state because it combines some of the most incredible, scenic outdoor areas in the world, with incredible city amenities. I love this community, so I always strive to support local businesses, and I can tell this is a great one. Make sure to come try a delicious meal and margarita soon, and if you would like to learn more about this great city, contact us today!
