While technically a “soft opening,” that won’t stop fans of downtown’s breakfast and lunch destination Eat from flocking to chef Natalie Young’s new Summerlin restaurant this week. The Carson Avenue original debuted in 2012 and the new expansion will feature the exact same menu during its early days, plus a very similar interior design.
Sitting inside the former Jacques Café at the Trails Village Center, the 2,525-square-foot Eat also features an outdoor patio. Finalized opening hours have yet to be announced, but downtown, Eat serves from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the week and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekends.
Still promising “good food for good people, made with love,” on the menu, cinnamon biscuits with strawberry compote, “golden-brown pancakes” with chicken-apple sausage and maple syrup, a truffled egg sandwich, shrimp and grits, green chili chicken posole, plus salads and sandwiches.
The weekend brunch includes “huevos motulenos,” a “killer grilled cheese,” corned beef hash and "#La 'Kat's deviled eggs," still promised to “make giraffes dance.”
