Two restaurants reopen at South Point, the resort southeast of the Strip, on March 15.
Don Vito’s, the Italian restaurant, returns Sundays through Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 10 p.m. Two-course meals start at $15.
Big Sur Oyster Bar also returns daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. With the reopening come the oyster bar’s popular “What the Shuck!?” lunch specials starting at $7.95 and half-price oysters and clams on the half shell. The “What The Shuck!?” specials are available daily from noon to 4 p.m.
The news comes as the state plans to relax its COVID-19 restrictions at restaurants and bars. In November, Nevada restricted restaurants to 25 percent capacity with a maximum of four people per table to slow the spread of COVID-19. On February 15, the state let restaurants and bars offer 35 percent capacity and a maximum of six people per table. Gov. Steve Sisolak says that if the state’s COVID-19 numbers continue to decline, he expects to continue reopening by relaxing capacity levels to 50 percent on March 15.
In January, the state moved hospitality and food service workers ahead in the line to get the COVID-19 vaccine. So far, that group of workers does not have a date to start receiving vaccinations.
