Another Las Vegas restaurant is being featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives “.
The popular Food Network show is putting the spotlight on a local cantina. And for good reason. The food is delicious, and the ambiance is casual and fun. The eatery is called Letty’s De Leticia’s Cocina. Located in the heart of the Arts District.
It’s no secret that host Guy Fieri loves him some Las Vegas food. As a UNLV alumni, Fieri has a soft spot for our little town. And even though he has many restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, Fieri knows some of the best eats are found off the beaten path.
Letty’s De Leticia’s Cocina is located at 807 S. Main Street, across from a bail bonds place and next to a law firm. But there’s no way you can miss it. It’s the adorable little building painted in vibrant colors that makes it stand out. It’s exactly what you would expect from a restaurant in the arts district.
And whatever chef Leticia Mitchell does to the food gives it the same vibrancy in its flavor. Reviewers are constantly beside themselves with the food, as well as the whole experience of dining at Letty’s. The amazing eats. The famous cocktails. The live music on the patio. It’s just something you have to do.
Letty’s is a smaller version of Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina.
Just to clear up any confusion. Both restaurants are owned by Leticia Mitchell. Both serve the same amazing food. But Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina in Santa Fe Station is more of a sit down place with a hostess and servers. Whereas Letty’s is a casual café where you order food at the counter and take it to your table. You can eat outside on the patio or inside, in front of a beautiful mural of Frida Kahlo.
And if whether permits, you should eat on the patio. With colorful umbrellas and raised planters full of flowers, you’ll appreciate the experience. And Mitchell is planning to make even more available outside with the construction of a patio bar.
Look for Letty’s De Leticia’s Cocina on this Friday’s episode (March 24) of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”.
