Just over a month old and the fast, casual dining side of Downtown Summerlin is singing its praises. Crazy Pita and Five Guys Burgers & Fries tell the Review-Journal they are exceeding expectations.

Crazy Pita creator Medhi Zarhlou told the paper, demand is so high they have increased staff levels from from 8 to 24. Gregg Carlson, the new co-owner of the burger franchise in Nevada, explained even with a chill in the air their Summerlin branch broke the company wide record of the most shakes sold in the first week of operation.

As the mega-mall gears up for the holiday shopping season, an outdoor ice skating rink will soon be added as a new attraction. Plus, shoppers await the imminent arrival of MTO Cafe, Ribs & Burgers and California Pizza Kitchen.
