There's a new Mexican joint (where a Coco's went out of business..woo hoo!) on the corner of Buffalo and Vegas called Galerias. They've only been open a couple of weeks, so go before the crowds find out about them.
Sorry, Michoacan restaurants, we love you immensely, but I think we have a new favorite Mexican place!
We had dinner there last night and it was incredible. The place is decorated like a Mexican mansion of old, so there aren't any sombreros or sarapes on the wall. It's quite attractive. They're so new, the Las Vegas location isn't even on their website yet. (That's GaleriasGourmet dot net for those who are interested.) It's a second location of this restaurant, not a chain venture, btw.
I have to rush to work right now, but will fill in the details later. The menu is filled with dishes that you've probably never seen unless you've lived in Mexico or eaten dishes prepared for local fiestas. Not many Mexican places offer dishes with ingredients like rose petals or fresh mint.
My wife's enchiladas suizas were delectable. I had the Filete Uruapan which is grilled skirt steak, layered with sauteed mushrooms, peppers, and onions, then covered in an avocado sauce. Presentation was beautiful and the Mexican rice was the best I've ever had.
Very much not your typical Mexican joint...and that is a wonderful thing!
