Jerry Perez and his Ace Bar & Restaurant Equipment supply company have been outfitting Las Vegas restaurants for almost a decade and alongside his wife and business partner Brenda, he is now stocking his own.
316 Cafe will take over the shuttered Big D Original Italian Subs at 316 Bridger, next door to a FedEx outpost and across from the Bank of America Plaza.
Perez began his career as a chef in Los Angeles and is bringing his sandwich knowledge to the new venture. Expect to find coffee, wraps, soup, salads, smoothies and his promised chicken salad or pulled pork sandwiches with homemade slaw.
The former sub shop has been stripped down and new colorful seating and decor have added, plus Internet access. No opening date has yet been revealed.
