Two years since entrepreneur and developer J Dapper purchased downtown's former Nevada Savings and Loan Association Building, San Diego’s Broken Yolk Cafe filed new paperwork to bring its famed breakfast and lunch menu to a ground-floor space.
Located at 201 Las Vegas Boulevard S. and previously announced to feature a rooftop dining concept from FukuBurger’s Colin Fukunaga and Graffiti Bao’s Marc Marrone, the Broken Yolk Cafe began the city’s architectural review process earlier this month.
Original leasing documents allocated a 4,210-square-foot area for the restaurant, plus a 1,268-square-foot patio that stretches from Las Vegas Boulevard around the corner onto Carson Avenue. Those early plans also made space for Olivier Brouillet’s French-inspired Baguette Cafe to expand from its southwest base and move into 1,667-square-foot venue on the Carson Avenue side of the building.
A revised debut date for any of the four-story building’s tenants has not been announced.
A tourist hot spot in San Diego's Gaslamp District since 1979 and now grown to more than two dozen locations, the Broken Yolk Cafe immediately became a busy hit at the Town Square retail center when it expanded to Las Vegas last year.
The restaurant that serves generous portions of American diner classics and breakfast favorites is currently being promoted as the dining anchor for another Dapper Companies venture, destined for the corner of Rainbow Boulevard and Richmar Avenue in Enterprise.
Renderings reveal the Broken Yolk is imagined for a very prominent corner property, joining a potential second local outpost of the Aware Coffee & Tea Lounge, a possible third Las Vegas home of Napoli Pizzeria, and perhaps the first Nevada restaurant for California chain Plant Power and its 100 percent plant-based menu, if the latter three sign leases.
Yet to be built, an estimated timetable for completion has been been released.
