Tivoli Village wasted no time replacing Cantina Laredo after it departed the shopping center over the summer. Centennial’s Mexican restaurant Leticia’s opened a second Las Vegas location.
Chef Leticia Mitchell, who immigrated to Las Vegas from Mexico City in 1964, focuses on dishes from Mexico City, Puebla, Guadalajara, and the Mayan peninsula.
Mitchell’s dishes include molcajetes, grilled carne asada, tiger prawn shrimp in a ranchera sauce, camarones al mojo de ajo (shrimp cooked in a garlic butter sauce), costillitas (pork short ribs braised in green tomatillo sauce), quesa tacos with grilled shrimp, and cecina a la tampiqueña (top sirloin topped with sautéed mushrooms and bacon).
She added chamorro adobado (marinated pork shank), only available at the Tivoli Village location.
Sundays bring a Mexican buffet brunch with Mexican pan dulce served table side, huevos rancheros, beef machaca, chicharrones, made to order chilaquiles, and eggs and omelet stations.
The original location in Centennial debuted in 2009 and remains open.
