A festive new taco is coming to Mercadito at Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas as part of Mercadito Hospitality’s national Tacos for Strength Campaign. This December, Mercadito will feature a winter-inspired taco created by James Beard Award finalist and Michelin Star award-winning chef Paul Virant of Vie and Perennial Virant in Chicago. A portion of the proceeds will go to Share Our Strength.
Mercadito at Red Rock Resort opened with great anticipation among locals mid-summer. Drawing from culinary experiences in Mexican Markets, Mercadito features a wide variety of creative tacos made with handmade corn masa tortillas, guacamoles, refreshing ceviche and classic dishes like enchiladas and chile rellenos.
Mercadito Hospitality (now based in Chicago) started with their first restaurant (Mercadito) in New York in 2004. A second Las Vegas area Mercadito is slated to open in 2015 in Henderson at The Green Valley Ranch Resort.
Executive Chef & Owner Patricio Sandoval (born in Acapulco) is our guest.
