The El Guapo tostada piles on the shellfish and avocado.
Celebrity chef and Top Chef Masters contestant Lorena Garcia has made her mark as the Strip’s first female Latin American headliner. Traverse Central and South America through a menu without borders, ranging from Peruvian ceviche to Venezuelan short rib arepas, Argentinian empanadas and Mexican tacos. And wash it all down with your choice of apple or blackberry sangria. Venetian, 702.430.1235, venetian.com $$$
Edo Tapas & Wine
On the far edge of Chinatown in a bustling strip mall, Edo delivers Spanish tapas with hints of Asian ingredients in a nod to its locale. On a menu full of don’t-miss items, don’t miss the griddled bikini, smoky montadito and the transcendent arroz meloso con uni while partaking of the playful gin and tonic cart. 3400 S. Jones Blvd., #11A, 702.641.1345, edotapas.com $$$
