Slice of Vegas is gearing up to open April 6 at Mandalay Place, and Michael Jasilewicz, director of operations for Titan, which owns Hussong’s Cantina as well as Slice, gave Eater Vegas a preview of the new resto. The name will be reflected in the artwork that will bedeck the walls once it’s open. Each shows a slice of life in Vegas through matchbooks and ashtrays from old resorts or a manhole cover from New York-New York, to name a few of the contenders. These slivers of life set the tone for this new pizzeria that plans to offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes on its menu as well as traditional pizza and Italian fare.
Step inside this long restaurant to discover an industrial feel with exposed brick and a red and black color scheme. A chalkboard dons the exterior. In front, booths with lights that look like industrial hair dryers hanging above offer primo people watching seats. On the right side, guests will be able to order pizza by the slice along with sandwiches and salads on the go.
The bar, which takes up the same space as the old Giorgio Ristorante E Caffe’s bar, but has an industrial feel with recycled corrugated metal and lighting underneath. High tops surround that area and a jukebox guests can program from their iPhone sits toward the back. They can even program a song to play as they walk in the restaurant.
In the back, the Marquee room can be closed off for special events that hold up to 150 comfortably. Images of signs from Vegas resorts stretched over canvas and a blue color scheme adorn this room.
In all, the space is a huge 11,000 square feet.
