March will see the long-awaited arrival in Downtown Summerlin of Andiron Steak & Sea, Ribs & Burgers and Gelato Messina and now we know the timetable for two more dining destinations, both with proven track records out of state.
First to arrive will be the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, marking their 16th location and their first outside of Southern California.
Currently hiring, the 9,174-square-foot, upscale casual Lazy Dog concept has announced via social media they are on track for an April opening. Family- and dog-friendly, Lazy Dog is noted for their brunches and internationally inspired twists on upscale casual menu favorites. Inside will be accented by fireplaces and a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs. A 2,038-square-foot dog-friendly patio will include views of the forthcoming Andiron Steak & Sea from Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla.
Further along Festival Plaza Drive, Public School 702 will unveil their 14,420-square-foot, school-themed project in May. They are also currently hiring. PS702 promises "an education in the art of food & beer," aiming to source their gastropub menu from local farmer’s markets. The seasonally updated menu is described as "eclectic" and is already promising "Colorado lamb burger, roasted poblano with quinoa and their "infamous Bacon Cheddar Tots."
Keeping the school theme, happy hour is dubbed "Recess" and features "parmesan truffle fries, crispy ahi tuna tacos and PB&J Sliders." Beer flights will be encouraged, as well as shareable, over-sized bottles of select beers, they deem suitable for "Group Study."
Public School already operates three locations in southern California, one in Dallas and will run seven restaurants by the end of the year.
