Seattle-based Casa Del Matador lasted about two years at Downtown Summerlin before closing. The Mexican restaurant on the north end of the shopping center sat near Andiron Steak & Sea and Crate & Barrel.
Inside, the restaurant featured ornate metal railings from Seattle’s 2K Metal Works while co-founder Zak Melang added his touch to the ornate table and bar tops to the brand he created in 2004 with Nate Opper.
The 4,306-square-foot included a 660-square-foot patio, a bar with more than 130 tequila choices, and a circular, 12-seat, indoor fire-pit.
On the menu, choices included enchiladas, tortas, tacos and burritos, as well as braised carnitas, carne asada, fajitas, and rib-eye steak.
More than 130 tequilas, mezcals, and añejos lined the bar, arranged on the menu by flavor profiles, and available in flights.
