When downtown’s Bronze Cafe shuttered last month, the owners announced they would be up and running by Dec. 3 at a new location near Summerlin and providing a daily menu to Smooth Eats at the John E. Carson Building.
Just a few weeks later, the new outpost will not be ready to open until next year and Smooth Eats has been taken over by the Fashion Show mall’s Juice Stars.
Launched in June 2017, the ambitious, locally created restaurant runs a made-to-order custom juice bar and vending machine at the mall. Downtown, Bronze Cafe now plans to be supplying the “sammiches, salads, and sweets” beginning Dec. 15.
Located next door to Bocho Sushi, Juice Stars replaces the cold press juice and sweet and savory selections at Smooth Eats, opened last year by the owners of Donut Bar, still open around the corner. Hoping the third time’s a charm, this location was also previously home to the shuttered Grass Roots Juice Bar. Updated opening hours have yet to be announced.
Diners who want to eat the Bronze Cafe creations at its new home close to the corner of Buffalo Drive and Smoke Ranch Road, will now have to wait “until after construction of our front of house coffee bar and juice bar and dining room,” expected to be in early 2019.
