The dining footprint of Fremont East expanded further east when The Kitchen at Atomic finally made its debut. Chef Josh Horton, previously at Cili Bali Hai Golf Course just south of the Strip, brings a dinner menu of what he calls “fine dining meets fun bar food with a twist” next door to Atomic Liquors on Fremont Street.
Dishes served by night include “social” bites including mac bites with poached lobster, Gruyere bechamel sauce and roasted peppers; soft pretzels with spicy beer mustard and a smoked beer cheese; and chicken wings with a pepperoni pizza waffle.
Main entrees include a ribeye crown with a pink peppercorn-shallot relish, sea scallops with Thai eggplant and chicken thighs with chicken fried hen of the wood mushroom. Of course, Horton notes, the menu may change “seasonally (or when the mood strikes us).”
