Casa Playa

Las Vegas, US

Casa Playa offers an authentic slice of Mexico in the heart of the Wynn Las Vegas resort. The restaurant has drawn upon the talents of Boston-raised chef Sarah Thompson, who learnt her trade working at Enrique Olvera’s seminal modern Mexican restaurant, Cosme, in New York City. She brings with her a lightness of touch and exceptional skill in seafood cookery, which comes to the fore in dishes such as shrimp- and chorizo-filled masa empanadas, snapper tempura and whole market fish doused in Mexican spices and applied to the plancha. All tacos are made to order, with fresh-pressed tortillas prepared with heritage grains to an ancient recipe. Dishes are served family style and are designed to build upon one another – the pork belly al pastor, for example, can be incorporated into rice dishes, tacos and enchiladas. A good wine list is available, but even greater interest is found in the exceptional selection of agave spirits, served by a knowledgeable sommelier.
