First revealed back in October 2015, "Old Vegas"-themed tavern and restaurant Atomic Kitchen is getting set to open next door to Atomic Liquors, Las Vegas' oldest freestanding bar.
Located inside the bar's 3,237-square-foot garage, Atomic Kitchen will also take over the existing 475-square-foot fenced-in patio space out front and is now working on adding an extra 1,000-square-foot of private patio.
The site of the backroom mobster scenes in Martin Scorsese's 1995 film Casino, the concept originally promised to serve "American style" cuisine surrounded by a "semi industrial yet refined" interior design.
Josh Horton, formerly of Cili at the Bali Hai Golf Club, takes over the kitchen that plans to server dishes such as prime-rib dip, chicken wings and a burger. He describes the food as “fine dining meets fun bar food in a casual, fun atmosphere,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. That means seafood and steaks as well.
Atomic Kitchen said on Facebook that it is looking at a mid-February opening.
