You're About To Get Schooled on the Newest Restaurant Coming to Downtown Summerlin

Public School unveils its sixth restaurant, opening at the shopping center next spring.

Think you know all the restaurants going into Downtown Summerlin, the shopping center opening next week south of Red Rock Resort? Think again. You’re about to get schooled on Public School 702 with the tagline, "An Education in the Art of Food and Beer."

The 13,833-square-foot, full-service restaurant and bar plans to open next spring, becoming the sixth location. You can find three in California, and one opening in Dallas and Sherman Oaks, Calif., soon from restaurateur Bob Spivak.

Executive chef Phil Kastel serves up dishes such as bacon cheddar tots served with Sriracha ketchup, a Colorado lamb burger with tomato cranberry jam, and shrimp and Grafton cheddar grits. New for Vegas only, a late-night menu.

Public School, which will be affectionately called PS702, features a draft list with 24 craft beers and more than half of them rotating to feature seasonal and regional brews. The restaurant also plans to serve some local beers. "Artisanal cocktails" and wine "on tap" also show up on the drinks list.

Happy hour here is referred to as "Recess" with $4 to $7 items.

The seating here is a mix of communal tables, booths and traditional indoor and outdoor dining tables. Those communal tables may double as spots for beer pong on the outdoor patio on the second level. And all has a touch of the classroom.
