A new eatery on Las Vegas Boulevard downtown will open Friday, but those close to the operation got a firsthand taste of the place Wednesday after a ribbon cutting by Mayor Carolyn Goodman.

Nacho Daddy, 115 N. 4th St., is a Mexican/American restaurant and bar housed in space formerly occupied by Thai Vegas.

With exposed brick walls and a large square bar with seating all around, the 3,000-plus-square-foot restaurant has a neighborly feel. Opening at 7 a.m., it will feature a breakfast menu, an espresso bar and Lion coffee beans from Hawaii that Paul Hymas said is not very common in Las Vegas.

Hymas is one of four restaurant investors that also include executives Fred Mossler and Tony Hsieh, and Keith Glynn, all of whom enjoyed food and drinks Wednesday afternoon.

This is the second Nacho Daddy in the area. The first opened in Henderson about three years ago.
