Three years after debuting just south of the runways of McCarran International Airport, New American Sandwich Co. has shuttered and quickly been replaced by a new restaurant that lets diners decide between healthy or indulgent casual dining choices.

Created by chef Vince Upperman, who oversaw the menus at both now shuttered locations of Portion Control, the space at the corner of Grier Drive and Paradise Road sits next door to the Paradise Pub, in an industrial neighborhood almost devoid of dining options.

On the menu, health-inspired dishes ranging from “198 calories and running up to 550 calories” and on the Glutton side, meals “running from 550 calories all the way to 1,300.”

All priced below $13.99, diners can order burgers, bowls, salads. smoothies, cauliflower crust pizzas, and “plate” selections including chicken and waffles, fish tacos, avocado toast, a sirloin “steak plate,” and the namesake “Glutton,” created with braised pork belly, candied bacon, and chicharróns.

The Guilt Free Glutton, 955 Grier Drive, Suite D2, 702-278-6097. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and closing at 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
