Vegas favorite chef Carlos Buscaglia already took over the kitchen at Hexx Kitchen & Bar last year, then brought its sidekick Alexxa’s Bar to Paris Las Vegas at the beginning of the year. Now the sangria spot has a new food menu filled with tapas hot and cold, flatbreads, and desserts. The new menu makes its debut later this month.
Diners can order cold plates such as deviled egg toast, heirloom tomato salad, grilled Caesar endive salad, ahi tuna tacos, ceviche, and Calabrese salami. Warm dishes include two fried chicken sliders served with pickles, spicy aioli, steamed buns, Asian slaw, and green onions; two vegetarian empanadas with hen of the woods mushrooms, black beans, asadero cheese, and avocado mole; and a prime rib pierogi with bacon caramelized shallots, ricotta, and horseradish sour cream. All range in price from $10 to $14.
Flatbreads cover prosciutto, chicken sausage, and butternut squash, as well as baked cheese served with rustic bread and baba ganoush served with warm pita bread.
On the dessert side of the menu, dishes include mango spring rolls, churro bites, a trio of pie pops, butterscotch pot de creme, and chocolate cannoli with Hexx chocolate.
Of course, sangria still take center stage. Drinks include a sparkling sangria, cider sangria, and seasonal sangrias as well as cocktails made with fresh juices. Diners can order a flight of sangrias if they can’t narrow down the choices or punch bowls meant to be shared.
