Some of my fondest memories of gathering with family and friends around a breakfast table were at some of the special places back home that only served breakfast and lunch. They just had a unique vibe to them and there was just something about starting a day with the smell of coffee in the air, bustling about in the kitchen, a plate of food in front of you and good conversation to be shared. I have been waiting for the opening of EAT…a place just like this…in Downtown Las Vegas.
EAT is an expression of love from Chef Natalie Young. The restaurant has a very cool vibe to it and possesses everything to make it in an institution of eating and meeting in the Downtown area. EAT describes itself as “good food for good people, made with love, in downtown Las Vegas.” I think this is what EAT is all about. It has been open for a little over a week and it seems as though many people have already found a little home away from home here. I have already been there twice for breakfast and I look forward to coming back for lunch.
When looking for somewhere to enjoy a vegan-friendly meal, you only need to have a few items available and EAT has that. Chef Natalie says there will be more to come. On the weekends the have a brunch menu and you can enjoy a wonderful bowl of steel cut oats with dried cinnamon apples, pecans, and brown sugar. Just hold the cream. It was delicious and I enjoyed it with some unbuttered thick rye toast (from Bon Breads) with some of their house-made jam. Oh heavens yes. During the week they have both a breakfast and lunch menu that has some vegan-friendly selections on both. The Tofu Scramble with wild mushrooms, green onions, and amazing chive smashed potatoes was incredibly good. That will be a breakfast I will have again….and again.
EAT is directly across the street from the Downtown Project’s ContainerVille…which is on its way. A little village of re-purposed shipping containers with a variety of businesses and food options. This is going to be hub of coolness and excitement very soon. EAT is within walking distance of the Fremont Street Experience. There is two-hour metered parking all around Monday-Saturday and free on Sundays. The staff are hip and fun and will take great care of you. Just remember…good food for good people with love in Downtown Las Vegas. If you want to meet…let’s go to EAT.
