Organic coffees and teas head to the southwest when Urth Caffe opens its first Las Vegas off the Strip at UnCommons, the $400 million development at Durango Drive and the 215 Beltway. The wildly popular European-style coffee shop opened its first first non-California, U.S. expansion of the Los Angeles-based brand at Wynn Plaza in November 2018.
Urth Caffe uses coffee beans from some of its own exclusive sources in Africa and South America, all 100 percent pesticide-free to produce organic coffee. The cafe part of the restaurant offers farm-to-table fare made with sustainable ingredients using home-grown recipes. Options include acai bowls, omelets, pancakes, French toast, panini, brunch dishes, breakfast pizzas, and more.
UnCommons plans to open in 2022 with work spaces that feature floor-to-ceiling windows, breakout spaces for individual work or small group collaboration, a conference center that can be used to host small meetings and workshops, and more. Fitness studios, an open-air common areas, contemporary residential units, a luxury movie theater, and food and beverage options are set to fill the space.
The restaurants already announced include Platform One, the city’s first neighborhood food hall from Batch Hospitality, with dining outlets from a dozen local chefs including Geno Bernardo, who had Nove Italiano at the Palms and ran Herringbone at Aria; Claudia Andracki from Desert Bloom Eco Farm near Pahrump; Jessica Perlstein, the executive sous chef at Main St. Provisions; and Roy Ellamar, who has Harvest at the Bellagio.
