Don’t let the old stereotypes of downtown Las Vegas fool you, the revitalized area surrounding the famed Fremont Street Experience has become a foodie’s personal slice of heaven. One of the best spots is Eat, which recently celebrated its third anniversary as one of Sin City’s premiere breakfast and lunch restaurants.
Owner and chef Natalie Young has enjoyed a 20 year career working at some of the finest restaurants in the world. She started Eat to provide simple, soulful and exceptionally good food to her local friends and neighbors. The restaurant’s casual atmosphere has made it a top local pick for breakfast and lunch and provides the ideal setting for the comfort foods featured on the menu. Eat’s signature dishes put a twist on Chef Young’s classic French culinary training, and the restaurant only uses the freshest, sustainable, locally-sourced and organic ingredients. From its delicious truffled egg sandwich and shrimp and grits for breakfast to their stacked-high-roast beef sandwiches and killer grilled cheese for lunch, even the most seemingly simple menu items have been transformed to fresh culinary treats that are bursting with flavor. When it comes to value, the portions at Eat are large and the prices are reasonable, making this a a spot to include in your regular downtown restaurant rotation.
The slogan for Eat is, “Good food for good people, made with love in downtown Las Vegas,” and the entire staff take this concept very seriously. In addition to the food at Eat, customer service has also received rave reviews on Yelp, which we found to be well warranted. While there is almost always a line outside during peak hours of operation, you’ll never wait too long as the courteous staff keep things moving swiftly. Eat has become so popular over the last three years, Chef Young recently opened up a second downtown Las Vegas restaurant, called, Chow. Located just down the street from Eat, Chow specializes in Chinese food and chicken dishes, while also serving through dinner time. It’s yet another testament to how Las Vegas locals have embraced the simple concepts and comfort food dining experiences that Chef Young loves to deliver.
The next time you’re looking for an out-of-this-world breakfast or lunch in Las Vegas, give the Strip a break and head downtown to Eat.
