Phoenix-based True Food Kitchen, the healthy restaurant beloved by Oprah Winfrey, now looks to spring 2020 for its opening at the Forum Shops at Caesars. The 11,314-square-foot restaurant with room for 315 plans to include True Bar next to the Reflecting Pool area on the ground floor of the shopping center, near the Las Vegas Boulevard entrance, close to another 2019 arrival, San Francisco’s The Slanted Door.
The space includes a patio dining, inspired by an industrial warehouse overtaken by greenery. Diners will see natural wood and stone, industrial-style lighting, steel-framed glass doors, and a greenhouse-style ceiling with live plants throughout the space.
Two interior private dining rooms offer flexible space for up to 72 diners. The first private dining room is a more secluded, intimate space inspired by a tropical beach hut with wood shutters and slat walls along with backlit window features to inspire a sunlit room. The second private dining room is large enough to be divided into two spaces and showcases a trellis ceiling with hanging plants and natural stone mosaic tiles to evoke the feeling of a lush, green garden terrace.
True Bar will sit atop the nearby Reflecting Pool with a range of cocktails including the Citrus Skinny Margarita made with citrus juice and organic tequila, along with beer and sustainable, organic and bio-dynamic wines. The scratch bar will also offer freshly pressed juices, organic teas, and natural refreshers, such as the Medicine Man, Hangover Rx and Kale Aid, among others.
True Food Kitchen’s menu rotates seasonally, but includes dishes such as spaghetti squash casserole, organic Tuscan kale salad, grilled fish and grass-fed steak tacos, the Inside Out quinoa burger, and more.
