La Neta Cocina Y Lounge

Opening this summer at Downtown SummerlinLa Neta Cocina Y Lounge will feature a dining experience set in an indoor garden and a cocktail lounge serving mezcals, tequilas and hand-shaken margaritas. The decor will showcase stained-glass murals and exposed brick walls with wooden beams and vaulted ceilings. Ornate chandeliers set the scene for a provocative ambiance. A living tree will be the focal point of the main dining room, and, in the lounge,  there will be a living-wall art installation.

Chef Israel Castro crafts each dish with robust Mexican flavors such as the Cochinita Pibil, braised and slow-roasted pork garnished with habanero onions and topped with chicharron crumble; Taquero Mucho, the ultimate taco party offering a selection of fillings, including chicken, carne asada, escabeche, mushroom and panela cheese; and Paella, served with shrimp, calamari, lobster, oysters and fish topped with white wine lemon butter.

There will also be a Chicken Relleno, a stuffed chicken with arroz verde and poblano cream; and a savory Roasted Acorn Squash served with sautéed seasonal veggies and garlic and spritzed with an herb vinaigrette.
