Cantina Laredo, featuring modern Mexican cuisine, will open in Tivoli Village on November 15th. Cantina Laredo boasts robust lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch and bar menus served in a sophisticated atmosphere.
Patrons seeking quality Mexican fair will delight in the wide variety of options found on Cantina Laredo’s menu, including vegetarian and gluten free offerings. Under the direction of Executive Chef Damon Workman, Cantina Laredo uses the best possible ingredients and prepares everything fresh in the kitchen.
Menu highlights include Camaron Poblano Asada with sautéed shrimp, mushrooms, onions, jack cheese all inside a grilled poblano pepper wrapped in carne asada steak and served on a bed of chimichurri sauce, Enchiladas de Avocado, avocado and artichoke enchilada topped with tomatillo sauce on a bed of spinach and Carnitas, braised pork shanks with chipotle-wine sauce.
Perhaps the most well-known offering is the perfect-for-sharing Top Shelf Guacamole, a mouth-watering mix of the freshest ingredients and Haas avocados, prepared to order, table-side and served with warm tortilla chips.
Workman has been with Cantina Laredo for more than six years, honing his culinary skills in Nebraska, Arkansas, Missouri and Texas. “We think Las Vegas will really embrace what Cantina Laredo has to offer,” noted Workman. “We use fresh ingredients in all we prepare and customer service is at the forefront of all that we do.”
In addition to a palette-pleasing lunch and dinner menu, Cantina Laredo dishes up a selection of sweet-tooth satisfying desserts including Mexican Brownie, Mango Tres Leches, Flan and more.
No Mexican dining destination would be complete without a notable margarita menu, so Cantina Laredo guests can enjoy a variety of margaritas including the signature “Casa Rita” made with fresh squeezed lime juice, and the “Cinco Margarita,” a blend of five tequilas. The bar will house more than 60 tequila labels and there are plans to grow that number with time.
Sunday Brunch is served each Sunday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. guests may choose from a special brunch menu and receive a complimentary Bloody Mary or Mimosa with purchase to complete the experience. Featured Sunday Brunch menu items include Crab Cakes Benedict and Asada y Huevos.
Las Vegans can look forward to daily happy hour specials from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. and 9p.m. – 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Each day will highlight a featured drink special in addition to the standard drink discounts. Happy Hour goers will also be able to choose from a menu of moderately priced, small dishes to complement their cocktails.
