True Food Kitchen, the healthy food restaurant out of Phoenix, now has an opening date for the first of two locations in Las Vegas. On Wednesday, Oct. 23, the location at Downtown Summerlin opens at 10970 Rosemary Park Drive, Suite 160, taking over the former Crave American Kitchen & Sushi Bar in the northern Dining Arroyo section of the shopping center. Construction permits show the restaurant will fill 7,277 square feet, large enough for a maximum occupancy of 361 inside.
Integrative medicine specialist Dr. Andrew Weil co-founded the restaurant with a healthy menu that uses by wholesome, simple ingredients. The restaurant plans to serve lunch, dinner, and a weekend brunch with a menu that includes organic Tuscan kale salad, an Inside Out quinoa burger, ancient grains bowl, and the spaghetti squash casserole.
Seasonal fall dishes include the roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted beet and goat cheese flatbread, butternut squash pizza, Thai coconut sea bass, and the new Unbeetable burger.
For brunch, diners can order smashed avocado toast, a vegan chorizo bowl, banana pancakes, and seasonal mimosas.
Even desserts get the healthy treatment with antioxidant-packed flourless chocolate cake and seasonal squash pie.
Other options include fresh-pressed juices from a scratch bar, as well as organic teas and sparkling prickly pear tisane, beer, wine, and cocktails that can be made with organic and gluten-free spirits.
The restaurant also offers a children’s menu with an almond butter, banana and apple sandwich, mozzarella and organic tomato pizza, and a chicken teriyaki bowl.
Initial estimates called for a construction budget of $1.8 million to remodel the space, set to feature a bright, vibrant dining room with open kitchen and create a scratch bar featuring fresh pressed fruit and vegetable juices, seasonal cocktails, local beer, and wine. The existing patio will also undergo a light makeover.
True Food Kitchen also plans to open at the Forum Shops at Caesars.
