Crave American Kitchen & Bar
Address: Downtown Summerlin, 10970 Rosemary Park Drive
Status: Opens at 11 a.m.
Downtown Summerlin, the shopping center south of Red Rock Resort, debuts today, and with it comes Crave American Kitchen & Sushi Bar, an American cuisine and modern sushi restaurant open for lunch and dinner. This, the ninth restaurant in the chain, is the first on the West Coast.
Crave brought on executive chef Jason Talbot to create the menu that includes scallops with butternut squash risotto, a bison burger and lamb meatballs with poblano cream sauce. A pizza oven displayed in the open kitchen area prepares signature flatbreads.
Over at the sushi bar, find head sushi chef Hiroki Ohata creating specialty rolls served on one of the decorated Hoshii, Geisha or Samurai sushi boats.
Wines are on display in a glass-enclosed wine cellar. Wine Spectator has honored the restaurant with an Award of Excellence since the first location opened in 2008. The bar touts a full spirits program with specialty cocktails, 12 beers on tap and eight sakes by the glass.
Diners can head to the patio that features a water fountain by day and a fire pit at night.
Crave plans to be open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
