True Food Kitchen, the healthy restaurant that opened a Downtown Summerlin location back in October, gets ready to open its first location on the Strip. The restaurant opens on Wednesday, February 12, at the Forum Shops at Caesars, complete with a first for the company out of Phoenix — a True Bar sitting on top of the shopping center’s reflecting pool at the entrance at Las Vegas Boulevard.
The 11,314-square-foot restaurant features an indoor patio, two private dining rooms each with their own theme, and an open kitchen. All come with design touches only found in the Las Vegas Strip location.
The heart of the menu focuses on simple ingredients that highlight the health benefits and favors of each ingredient. Integrative medicine expert Dr. Andrew Weil co-founded the restaurant in 2008. Lunch, dinner, and a weekend brunch each have their own menus. So far, teased dishes, which change seasonally, include an immunity bowl made just for winter, a fig and Gorgonzola flatbread, and guacamole made with edamame, as well as a vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Other dishes always found on the menu include an ancient grains bowl, spaghetti squash casserole, organic Tuscan kale salad, grilled fish tacos, and the inside out quinoa burger.
The 1,800-square-foot True Bar sits nearby, floating on the reflecting pool and specializes in detox and retox drinks. One private dining room features a garden-inspired decor while the second larger private dining room features an al fresco-inspired dining room.
True Food Kitchen plans to be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday from 11 a.m. to midnight; Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
