Details on Jose Andres' new Chinese-Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas
As reported earlier, Jose Andres will be opening two new restaurants at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The first will be a Sin City outpost of Jaleo (Andres' Spanish tapas restaurant in Washington) and the second a Chinese-Mexican concept.
Until now, Andres' Chexican restaurant remained unnamed, but the new addition to his Think Food Group family will be called China Poblano. The space will be designed by SEED, which also has designed restaurants for the likes of Emeril Lagasse and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Asian-meets-Latin-American fusion has taken the mobile food world by storm, and it'll be interesting to see Andres' updated take on the trend when the restaurant -- and the Cosmopolitan -- open on Dec. 15.
