Le Kon Celebrates Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead)

From our friends at Le Kon...

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. This year, Día de Muertos is celebrated October 31 - November 2.

Le Kon restaurant in Clarendon is celebrating by offering $4 Margaritas, along with their Mexican menu which highlights entrees such as Pig Head Carnitas; Chicken al Pastor; Tempura Salmon and a variety of steaks including a 32 oz. Tomahawk cut. Small plates include Ceviche; Tostadas; Chips and five salsas and prawns crab guacamole. New to the menu is a variety of raw oysters with Mezcal Mignonette including Malpeque ($12 per half doz./$20 per dozen) and Sea Grass Point ($15 per half dozen/$25 per dozen.)

On Thursdays, the restaurant will host Pride Night from 6-9 PM with a percentage of all bar sales going to NOVA Pride. Saturday evening from 10 PM to close, Le Kon will offer a portion of their proceeds to a rotating group of local causes.

Le Kon has a colorful modern urban vibe with funky design elements like Latin-inspired pop art, coffered ceiling, exposed bulbs, bright purple to scarlet ombre corn husk wall hangings festooning the top of the walls by banquets and a concrete bar with metallic copper ceiling. The hand mosaic tabletops are white Carrara marble tile. Whimsical ’Day of the Dead’ wallpaper was custom made for Le Kon.
