Charleys Philly Steaks now open at La Palmera


Lush preparing for limited in-person opening; Razzoo’s and ChinaMax to open later this year


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (July 14, 2020) – The new Charleys Philly Steaks opened today in the La Palmera Cafés food court, the first location in the Coastal Bend.

Known for its delicious sandwiches grilled fresh to order, particularly the Philly Cheesesteak, the new Charleys features foodie favorites like gourmet loaded fries and real fruit lemonades. Charleys uses only premium ingredients, including 100% USDA choice steak, 100% all-white meat chicken, all-natural cheeses, and hand-cut vegetables.

Lush, the socially and environmentally conscious retailer known for its all- natural hair, face and body products, is planning to open for in-person shopping for the first time in early August. With its original March 16 grand opening sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new store has only partially opened when it began filling online orders for pickup on June 18. This is the first Coastal Bend location for Lush.

Two other new dining options are slated to open later this year at La Palmera. Razzoo’s Cajun Café will be located adjacent to JCPenney off Staples Street in the mall’s southeast parking with its festive casual atmosphere and made-from-scratch Cajun food, including gumbo and gator tail; and ChinaMax will bring its fusion of various Southeast Asian cooking styles and fresh and healthy traditional Chinese fare to the La Palmera Cafés.
