Following an October debut of her cocina at the Fiesta Henderson, sibling resort Santa Fe Station is now the new home of Mitchell's very similar restaurant, Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina, a rapid replacement for the shuttered Cabo Mexican Restaurant.
Featuring creations inspired by the flavors of “Mexico City, Puebla, Guadalajara, and the Mayan Peninsula,” the restaurant encourages “family-style” dining and has introduced a Sunday brunch available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
During the week, happy hour specials on drinks and small plates are served from 2 to 6 p.m. and at the bar from 6 to 7 p.m. On the weekend, the bar deals are scheduled from 9 p.m. to midnight, staying open after the main dining room has closed for the night.
Both the large Henderson and northwestern menus and prices are identical and include a full roster of entrees, tacos, burritos, sopas, ensaladas, tamales, fajitas, and mariscos, plus a series of “Chef Specials,” including a 13-hour marinated pork shank, “tiger prawns shrimp, clams, mussels and grilled fish in a robust tomato broth” and steamed cooked lamb prepared with a cup of consommé and two tacos.
Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina, Santa Fe Station, 4949 N. Rancho Drive, 702-658-4900. Open daily from 11.30 a.m. to 9 p.m., closing at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
