José Andrés’ offers Las Vegas locals a whimsical treat
Thu Jun 25 2020
It should come as no surprise that people flock to José Andrés’ restaurants, not only because of his delicious creations and his sparkling charisma, but to also show their own thanks for his remarkable contributions, particularly providing meals in the wake of disasters. For years, world-renowned chef and humanitarian José Andrés has dedicated his time to be in the front-lines to benefit human welfare. He has traveled across the globe to help out during some of the world's most devastating catastrophes, most recently to the Grand Princess, when it was docked during the inception of the COVID-19 pandemic. Andrés and his team at World Central Kitchen remain heroes of the global community.
Now, Andrés has made his own restaurants inside The Cosmopolitan safe to dine in and enjoy his classic dishes once again after the long-needed “intermission.” Diners will experience strategically-spaced, sanitized tables, contactless menu from a QR code, personnel in masks, and “genuine concern and sincere hospitality.” To welcome Las Vegas locals for their support, his two restaurants, China Poblano and Jaleo, are introducing locals' only deals. All you need is proof of Nevada ID and this digital ad upon purchase.
Weekly from Sunday through Tuesday during lunch and dinner at China Poblano, enjoy Mexican and Chinese cuisine, “the José way.” The locals’ menu deal features the Chef’s Tasting Menu ($35) which includes signature favorites, such as traditional siu mai, cold cucumbers, tacos de carnitas, 20 vegetable fried rice, shrimp mojo, mango sticky rice, and chips and salsa. The meal comes complete with a cocktail of choice: the famous Salt Air or Classic Margarita.
At Jaleo by José Andrés, also located inside Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, choose from two complimentary libations: Sangría de vino tinto or Estrella Damm Lager, with the purchase of your favorite tapa. Jaleo is known for its small plates, which are designed to be shared. Each plate offers bites that combine Spanish tradition with a touch if whimsy. One of my favorites is the Pan de Cristal con Tomate, toasted slices of uniquely crispy and ethereal bread brushed with fresh tomato. Delightfully addicting! Enjoy the locals’ offer each week, Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 - 10:30 p.m. and use this digital ad.
