Address: Gold Spike, 217 Las Vegas Blvd.
Status: Open 24 hours a day.
The Gold Spike Grill has been replaced by an upgraded, new 24/7 concept at the Downtown Project-owned Gold Spike. Fiddlestix debuts today, describing itself as a "modern cafe" and featuring a menu from chef Geoffrey Graham. The "modern" spin also includes the décor, highlighted by a "20-seat floating fuchsia quartz community table with interactive built-in iPads and internet access."
The makeover of the 1,146-square-foot, 50-seat space has been in the works since last December when the project was working under the name of the G Spot Grill.
Fiddlestix is making a specialty of its breakfast menu, available around the clock and from 6 to 10 a.m. offering build-your-own $9 yogurt parfaits or acai bowls. On Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., their brunch will feature all-you-can-drink mimosas and Bellinis.
Starters include $7 "Dirty Tots," featuring hickory smoked bacon, nacho cheese and scallions, the $10 "Spike Slider" and $9 buffalo chicken wings. Margherita and Chicken pineapple flatbread pizzas join "Philly cheesesteak press" and "tuna melter" panini, plus a range of burgers of sandwiches including a $12 mushroom Swiss burger and an $11 oven roasted turkey option.
A roster of "boozy milkshakes" are led by "The Dude," made with vodka, Kahlua, chocolate syrup, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate swirl, priced at $11.
In 2014, eyebrows were raised when Downtown Project's Tony Hsieh was said to be the reason desserts were removed from the Grill's menu. Fiddlestix have reversed any previous restrictions and are serving a brownie sundae for $9 and a $5 cookie and milk platter.
