Plastic, not paper, will rule the roost at Flock & Fowl this fall, when husband-and-wife team Sheridan Su and Jenny Wong debut their second incarnation downtown.
Set to be named Flock & Fowl DTLV, the 2,546-square-foot replacement for Itsy Bitsy Ramen & Whisky on the ground floor of The Ogden will not accept cash, only credit or debit cards, in a first for a high-profile Las Vegas restaurant.
Explaining the reasoning on the company Facebook page, the merits were listed as “clean, no audit, no worries of missing money, no worries of getting robbed, lower insurance premium, easy accounting, no bank runs ever, and all that time and money saved can go towards focusing on the guest and the food.”
They also cited the example of restaurateur Tony Zazula and the first Manhattan concept to go cashless, the now closed Commerce Restaurant.
Once the downtown location debuts, now expected to be “three to four months away,” the original Flock & Fowl site on Sahara will also stop taking cash.
