Posh restaurants are ideal locations for celebrating life's milestones, such as graduating college or successfully sprouting scaly wings. Today's Groupon sets an elegant scene for your next celebration: for $25, you get $55 worth of upscale Mexican dinner and drinks at Mundo. Your Groupon is redeemable for dinner at the I-15 adjacent eatery; see today's side deal for lunch.
Mundo boasts an innovative menu of upscale Mexican fare conceived by their award-winning Yucatán-born chef, Robert Solano. Start with a refreshing ahi-tuna tostada ($14) and scoop the sushi-grade snack into your fish-famished mouth, or sip spoonfuls of the spicy cumin-enhanced poblano-chile corn soup ($8) with traditional garnishes. Succulent entrees will transport your taste buds back to the summer spent stowed away in the kitchen of an upscale cruise boat based in Puerto Vallarta, because a sample of the sweet chipotle-glazed shrimp tamale ($24), drizzled with red-chile brandy sauce and queso-fresco relish, will bring on food-triggered flashbacks. Flaunt an order of the tender filet mignon of kurobuta pork ($26), glazed with an ancho-chile and mango sauce, at the late-night water cooler or indulge your steaktooth with the 16 oz. strip-steak mixed grill ($34), served with grilled fresh veggies, applewood smoked bacon, and roasted salsa.
The swanky eatery boasts a sleek interior made cozy by plush booths and Moroccan lamps that adorn the walls of the dimly lit interior. The intimate décor makes Mundo an ideal location for a romantic rendezvous with minxy Mahfouz scholars or secret meetings of the Mary Tyler Moore–impersonators club. Call ahead for reservations.
- It's tempting to call Mundo the most important restaurant to open Downtown in the past 20 years. If it survives, it will almost certainly be hailed as such. If it doesn't, Las Vegans will only have themselves to blame for not supporting a place pulling out all the stops to impress. – John Curtas, Las Vegas Weekly
- The carnitas were tender, with a wonderful blend of chile and nice sweetness. – Vegas Musings
- I had a chile soup for an appetizer that was pretty amazing...I really look forward to my next visit. This has the potential to be the best mexican(esque) food in Vegas. – Doug A., Yelp
