Well, well, well. That restaurant taking over the former home of B.B. King's Blues Club at the Mirage now has a name. Back in February, Eater Vegas broke the news of the $3 million renovation of the restaurant and speculated that it could be called The Pantry. Now comes word that Pantry is indeed the name of the 24-hour restaurant, debuting this September.

Supporting an ongoing trend here in Vegas, the restaurant will focus on sustainable ingredients for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night. Breakfast will be available 24 hours a day for guests who happen to want pancakes, omelets and scrambles. Also find fruit and vegetable juices covering pomegranate, carrot orange mango and cucumber pineapple ginger.
Munge Leung, which designed 1 OAK at the resort, is behind the look and feel of the place. Expect to find hardwood floors and white walls lined with cabinets that hold china so the place will feel like a family kitchen. The specials find a home on chalkboards while that family kitchen feel extends to clocks and artwork. Even the servers will don denim and flannel shirts.
Already the Mirage has released a teaser of some of the menu. Find cinnamon roll French toast, feta and spinach scrambled eggs and a short rib pot roast hash served round the clock. For lunch and dinner, served from 11 a.m. to 6 a.m., find mahi-mahi tacos, clam chowder, a chopped vegetable salad, a natural honey-roasted turkey BLT, "Texas Pete" fried natural chicken, as well as desserts such as a seasonal fruit cobbler and cookies baked on the spot.
