Javier's, Las Vegas, NV

Javier's Restaurant Review

: Javier’s at Aria Resort & Casino serves dishes created from co-founder Javier Sosa’s family recipes. (The Mexico native also has two Javier’s restaurants in Southern California and one in Los Cabos.) The massive 9,000-square-foot restaurant features a circular main bar with a canopy of ropes overhead, a lounge, two dining rooms and a private dining room. Javier’s is located just off the casino, so request one of the booths or tables farther back if you’d like a less public setting. The décor includes alcove ceilings and the world’s largest piece of chainsaw art, with panels illustrating the Mayan Creation myth blended with modern Mexican history. Kick things off with chips and guacamole or octopus ceviche with red onions and cilantro. We recommend selecting one of the combination meals, particularly the Cabo Azul, which includes a Maine lobster enchilada; grilled chile relleno stuffed with cheese, shrimp and Dungeness crab; and an Ensenada-style shrimp taco. Another option is the “Arrachera,” a 10 oz. grilled skirt steak served with fries, refried beans and salsa quemada. Dessert brings just two choices: flan or fried ice cream. Hand-shaken, made-to-order margaritas are among the libations; the signature “tequila tree” holds a massive collection of bottled tequilas. The staff is efficient and attuned to the diners.
