One of the most eagerly awaited debuts of the summer has arrived on Main Street, sitting under an iconic Arts District neon sign and serving a casual breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu from local restaurateur Leticia Mitchell.

Letty’s De Leticia’s Cocina replaces the 1,842-square-foot former El Sombrero Cafe space at 807 S. Main Street, a location synonymous with Mexican dining since 1950.

Opening daily at 7 a.m., chef Mitchell expanded on her Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina menu at the Santa Fe Station and created a new, counter-service restaurant inspired by her Mexico City roots.

Featuring a protective barrier at the counter and socially distant seating, Letty’s collection of apertivos, or small eats, includes $8 ceviche, $5 grilled corn, $8 chicharrones, and seasoned fries upgraded with Mexican chorizo, Oaxaca cheese, and topped with two eggs.

Customers can order heartier lunch and dinner options of tacquitos, tamales, empanaditas, gorditas, $9 enchiladas, and the $11 steak ranchera.

Tacos include street-style preparations with al pastor, pork belly, and carne asada, guisados tacos filled with choices of pork mole, birria, or chicken tinga and the $4 ensenada taco created with seared, or battered, fish and shrimp.

Also available, tortas, sides, and desserts, plus beer, margaritas, and an evolving roster of cocktails.
