The company that owns several of the bars and restaurants in the Fremont East district has just acquired another one. Corner Bar Management, the company behind downtown Las Vegas bars like Commonwealth, Lucky Day, and Discopussy, has acquired the Mexican restaurant La Comida. In its place, Corner Bar will introduce a new restaurant, La Mona Rosa. Executive Chefs Daniel Arias and Isidro Marquez-Castillo, from Corner Bar’s downtown restaurant, Peyote, will curate a menu for La Mona Rosa, which aims to celebrate Mexico’s diverse regions and robust flavors.
The 3,500-square-foot La Comida in the Fremont East area houses a dining room, bar, patio seating, and a 25-foot-long cocktail bar that overlooks neighboring Corner Bar bars and restaurants like Park on Fremont and We All Scream. Corner Bar’s owner, Ryan Doherty, will keep the 7-foot-tall pink neon monkey that clings to the side of the building but plans to add a stage for hosting nighttime entertainment.
La Comida first debuted in 2013 as a venture by Jenna and Michael Morton’s Morton Group, which is also behind La Cave Wine and Food Hideaway at Wynn Las Vegas and One Steakhouse. Jenna and Michael are in discussions to open a new La Comida in a resort hotel property, according to Corner Bar Management.
