Back in 2008, Dr. Andrew Weil connected with restaurateur Sam Fox, and together they developed True Food Kitchen with its healthy food options. Weil, an integrative medicine expert, envisioned a menu based on the anti-inflammatory food pyramid with an emphasis on wholesome, simple ingredients, as well as nutrient-dense staples, responsibly sourced proteins, and little-known superfoods.
Now 12 years later, Phoenix-based True Food Kitchen has its first True Bar that debuted at the restaurant’s second Las Vegas location at the Forum Shops at Caesars. And some of those healthy ideas find a home on the bar menu.
True Bar sits atop the reflecting pool at the front of the Forum Shops with a view of the freestanding spiral escalator and in front of True Food Kitchen. Wrapped in natural woods, the space features room for 66 patrons across its 937 square feet.
On the menu, freshly pressed juices, organic teas, and detox drinks, such as Dr. Weil’s Wellness Shot with sea buckthorn, pomegranate, and ginger; the Hangover Rx with pineapple, orange, honey, and coconut water; and Kale Aid with kale, ginger, apple, celery, cucumber, and lemon.
Cocktails include a ginger margarita; Causemo with organic vodka, prickly pear, and lime; and the Garden of Eden with gin, cucumber, pineapple, elderflower essence, and lemon. Wines, coffee, teas, and beers round out the menu.
For the health-conscious, every item includes the calorie count, and vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are noted on the menu.
