With so many mediocre hotel restaurants in Panama City, Solo, inside the Riande Urban Granada, is a breath of fresh air. The sleek, formal space, with large windows looking out at the lovely pool area, is filled with pop art and design features like ambient lighting. The two Spanish-trained chefs are quite gifted and aren't afraid to use molecular gastronomy techniques like freezing ingredients in liquid nitrogen. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Some dishes, like the tuna tataki, will be exactly as expected, while others, like a deconstructed ropa vieja that's turned into a soup, are drastically different. Ingredients are top quality, and it's easy to taste the care that goes into the food here.
