Don’t think that Resorts World plans to skip the casual food when it opens on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip this summer. Aside for the already announced hawker center food hall Famous Foods Street Eats, the resort opening this summer has everything from a celebrity-favorite vegan restaurant and paper-thin pizza from Beverly Hills to a casual restaurant from local restaurateur Billy Richardson and another location for a San Diego Mexican restaurant.
Celebrity darling Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream out of Los Angeles serves 100 percent vegan ice cream that’s certified kosher and gluten-free. The cashew-based ice cream comes in scoops, pints, sundaes, and shakes in flavors such as Melrose Mint Chip, Sunset & Strawberry, Killa’ Vanilla, and Perfectly Chocolate.
Marigold from Las Vegas local Billy Richardson, who has restaurants such as Holsteins Shakes & Buns at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and now permanently closed The Barrymore at the Royal Resort, expects to serve American staples including burgers, lobsters, and desserts made in house as well as craft brews, cocktails, and wine.
Richie Palmer’s Mulberry Street Pizzeria of Beverly Hills, which originally opened in 1991, serves pizzas about as thick as a piece of paper by the slice and in pies with specialty toppings such as chicken ranch, eggplant Parmesan, and rigatoni.
Sun’s Out Buns Out, developed by Resorts World, plans to feature comfort food starring eggs as the primary ingredient, all day, every day.
San Diego’s Tacos El Cabron, which just opened across from UNLV and has a second location in the works at the intersection of Decatur Boulevard and Meadows Lane, plans to serve Tijuana-inspired Mexican cuisine such as street tacos, elote, burritos, bowls, and specialty dishes such as birria.
The resort also has a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night restaurant in the works. The Kitchen at Resorts World plans to serve internationally inspired cuisine ranging from burgers and pasta to wok-fried noodle dishes. Bonus: the restaurant includes a buffet option from its perch overlooking the casino.
The Market Eats & Drinks goes super casual with grab-and-go sandwiches, sweet and salty snacks, fine wine, and small-batch sodas 24/7.
The resort’s 5.5-acre pool complex features Agave Bar & Grill, serving Mediterranean fare and grilled seafood dishes; Bites, a snack bar located at the family pool on the east side of the pool deck; and two full-service bars — one of which will feature life-sized Jenga and cornhole, located on the east side of the pool complex and the other overlooking the resort’s infinity-edge pool.
