LAS VEGAS (December 17, 2018) – Luxor Hotel and Casino spices up the resort’s food and beverage program with the addition of Diablo’s Cantina, opening December 20. At Diablo’s, guests will be invited to ignite their taste buds with tantalizing appetizers, wickedly tasty entrees, delicious desserts and tangy cocktails.
The robust menu, created by Executive Chef Saul Ortiz, will boast vibrant Mexican fare deeply rooted in the culture and traditions of Mexico City, the country’s capital. From starters to sides, each dish balances rich flavors with modern cooking techniques and detailed presentations to provide guests time-honored, south of the border favorites in an approachable way.
“My cooking style is heavily inspired by the produce and street food of Mexico City, my hometown,” said Ortiz. “The menu features a collection of the city’s popular dishes and showcases a modern approach to authentic Mexican cuisine by preparing traditional ingredients using contemporary methods.”
Menu highlights will include:
Diablo’s Salsa Tasting: A tasting of three increasingly spicy house-made salsas including a mild tomatillo and jalapeno mix; medium tomato and chipotle blend; and a tingling combination of roasted tomatoes and Carolina Reaper, the world’s hottest pepper
Combination Fajitas: Sizzling skillet of Achiote-marinated steak, Adobo chicken and citrus shrimp with bell peppers, red onions and yellow squash
Churro Funnel Cake a la Mode: Churro funnel cake complete with cinnamon ice cream, strawberry marmalade and Nutella
Fans of Diablo’s will recognize the abstract sombrero sculpture which remains the focal point of the venue, while a color palette of red, purple and green, along with colorful sugar skull murals and updated fixtures, transforms the room into a vibrant dining space. Large parties can be hosted in the private dining room, which seats up to 60 guests.
Diablo’s Cantina will be located on Luxor’s Mezzanine Level, in the former Tacos & Tequila space. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. For more information or to make reservations, call the restaurant directly at (702) 262-5225 or visit the Luxor website.
