New Modern Mexican Restaurant and Lounge Debuts in Summerlin
Otro Mas from 81/82 Group! La Neta Cocina y Lounge is opening in Downtown Summerlin® this summer! La Neta Cocina, an elevated escape inspired by the rich cultural heritage of Mexico with a modern approach offering a consciously constructed menu. Created and designed by hospitality connoisseur Ryan Labbe, La Neta will debut an alluring dining experience amid a spacious indoor garden as well as an intimate cocktail lounge serving the finest hand-shaken margaritas, rare tequilas and mezcals amidst a full bar.
Step into La Neta, the lavish 5,336 square foot contemporary space meticulously constructed with superior attention to detail highlighting natural elements with warm and earthy tones. The sprawling space is adorned with stained glass murals and exposed brick walls accented by wooden beams in vaulted ceilings and an array of chandeliers that set the scene for a provocative ambiance. The main dining room welcomes nature into the dining experience in the form of a living tree that invites guests for an evening of cocktails and conversation under the stars. The lounge at La Neta takes center stage presenting dinner-goers with a living wall art installation outfitted with lush greenery.
Helmed by Chef Israel Castro, La Neta will offer its modern take on the traditional cuisine with locally-sourced ingredients incorporating bold Mexican flavors with an array of options for every palate. The shared-plate concept will offer dishes such as their Cochinita Pibil, braised and slow-roasted pork garnished with habanero onions and topped with chicharron crumble.
The highly favored Taquero Mucho, will surely be the ultimate taco party offering a vast selection of fine meats including chicken, carne asada, escabeche, mushroom and panela cheese. Chef Castro will present his rendition of the iconic Spanish rice dish, Paella, served with shrimp, calamari, lobster, oysters and fish topped with white wine lemon butter. Other menu highlights include a Chicken Relleno, a stuffed chicken with arroz verde and poblano cream and a savory Roasted Acorn Squash served with sauteed seasonal veggies, garlic, and spritz with a herb vinaigrette.
La Neta’s masterful cocktail initiative will have you sipping on specialty tequilas and rare mezcals along with their bountiful sips that include the Margarita De La Casa served with blanco tequila and El Jefe Carajillo boasting with spiced rum and horchata foam. Other playful cocktails include the vodka-based Birds of a Feather and Como La Flor with gin and elderflower.
“Tourists and locals are two completely different markets,” says 81/82 Founder Ryan Labbe. “We are bridging the gap and providing a unique dining experience with the glitz of the strip in the heart of downtown Summerlin.”
