Market is Panama City's premier American-style steakhouse and burger bar and it's often crowded. As with owner David Henesy's sibling spot La Posta, the atmosphere here is clean and the space is beautifully designed (zebra-print floors, polished concrete, walls lined with bottles of Chianti). For all that, Market stays in touch with the casual diner. Meat, obviously, is the signature element, be it New York strip or grass-fed Angus from the Chiriqui highlands, or the dozen different sandwiches and burgers. There are also mouth-watering sides like bacon mac 'n' cheese and portobello hash. Surprisingly, the salad selection here is superb as well. Note: Make sure you have the right address. The current location is one block from the original.
