Not everyone visiting the massive Downtown Summerlin shopping and dining district debuting this fall will have time for a leisurely meal at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, or the un-named third restaurant from Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla. The 106-acre, 1.6 million-square-foot open-air complex naturally needs to fill the cravings of those hungry for the simple, fast and casual.

As construction rapidly continues, not all the retail and dining tenants have been revealed, but new additions have been uncovered by Eater Vegas.

Leading off the list of unannounced tenants, Five Guys Burgers & Fries will house a 2,873-square-foot outlet at the southern, Dillard's-anchored, end of the mall, an area set to feature Nordstrom Rack, Old Navy and Sport's Authority.

Moe's Southwest Grill becomes a close neighbor to Five Guys, adding 3,187 square feet of space to serve Mexican-inspired dishes with "free chips and salsa with every order." Moe's already operates within Concourse A at McCarran International Airport.

Across the parking lot from Moe's and in the building next to the large, 5,940-square-foot Red Robin Gourmet Burgers costing an estimated $850,000 to construct, sits a couple of familiar favorites. Building 8B will feature a Panda Express and Las Vegas natives, Capriotti's Sandwich Shop. The 1,865-square-foot Capriotti's will bring the chain's local presence to almost 40 stores.

Nekter Juice Bar, a California-based juicery chain will occupy 3,003 square feet in building L, close to Macy's in the middle of the shopping center.

Zaba's Mexican Grill, a rival to Moe's Southwest Grill, is building their sixth local location in Las Vegas on the opposite side of Dillard's to Moe's. Zaba's is best known for being part of the food court at Downtown's Plaza Hotel.

Crazy Pita, born and bred in Las Vegas, was one of the earliest rumored tenants. Their 1,999-square-foot site is their third location in the city and beats their long-rumored arrival at the Fashion Show mall. Crazy Pita's Mediterranean-inspired dishes are in the building east of Zaba's, also in front of Dillard's.

Other dining options include California Pizza Kitchen in a stand-alone, 9,842-square-foot building next to Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, a second local MTO Café, ROC Resto-Lounge, a cafe at the Lindbergh clothing store, Teavana, Centennial Hills' Sushi Loca, the equally sushi-focused CRAVE Restaurant, a Wetzel's Pretzels and Bonanno's Pizza.

Also rumored is a version of Trattoria Reggiano Italian restaurant from the Venetian's Grand Canal Shoppes, owned by the same company as Bonanno's.

Downtown Summerlin will officially debut Oct. 9.
