Three much-anticipated restaurants from reputable local operators all opened for business in the past week, adding to an already busy year in the Las Vegas dining scene.
Lulu’s Bread & Breakfast, a bakery and café created by the owners of Metro Pizza, opened days ago in the Centennial Hills neighborhood, serving breakfast, brunch and lunch and a wide variety of breads, pastries and sweets. Lulu’s, adjacent to the newest Metro Pizza location at 6720 Sky Pointe Drive, is open daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Also new to the Valley: Mingo Kitchen & Lounge was conceptualized by Mingo Collaso, one of the partners behind Mundo, the popular pre-Smith Center show dining spot at World Market Center. Mingo the restaurant just opened in Downtown’s Art Square at 1017 First St. #180. The menu includes craft beer, signature cocktails and Latin-influenced small plates.
Staying Downtown and moving to the sizzling Fremont East Entertainment District, Michael Morton’s latest project La Comida is now open at 100 Sixth St., a Mexican restaurant just north of the corner of Sixth and Fremont. A massive margarita menu and authentic cuisine are already attracting big crowds … or maybe it’s the neon monkey sign guiding the way.
