“The Cosmopolitan has a thoughtful collection of high-end, luxury dining options, something the resort has been synonymous with since its inception,” said Patrick Nichols, The Cosmopolitan’s Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development. “Furthering our commitment to our guests, we now see the need for more quick-serve, made-to-order concepts to add to our Restaurant Collection. We have searched the country over the past two years for the most crave-able food and beverage concepts and are excited to bring together six of our favorites to Block 16. The teams behind each of these restaurants are extraordinary, and we are thrilled to introduce them to Las Vegas.”

Fast-casual dining spots from acclaimed chefs are becoming increasingly popular in Las Vegas. At the start of the year, world-renowned chef Giada de Laurentiis opened Pronto by Giada at Caesars Palace. Lifestyle brand Canyon Ranch opened its first stand-alone, quick-and-casual concept CR CREĀT, helmed by Canyon Ranch’s Executive Chef Pete Ghione, inside The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas in May.

The Cosmopolitan is the first resort to coordinate a full lineup of quick-serve, made-to-order restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip. Think of it like an upscale food court or, better yet, an indoor street food market. Graffiti wall art collages and an industrial design create a “metropolitan alleyway” feel. Seating varies from booths to high-tops to chef-facing countertops.

When the first-to-market urban food hall opens, hours will be as follows:

District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew.
Sunday through Thursday, 6 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Friday through Saturday, 6 a.m. – midnight
