Let them (eat.) music!

If there is any question that downtown is on a return path to the wonderful days when it was the shopping, dining and socializing district of Las Vegas, look no further than this weekend. Not only has our premier music festival Neon Reverb taken over most music venues downtown and packed them chock-full of stellar bands, but Chef Nat’s new breakfast and lunch joint, Eat, soft opened on Sep 14 — and promptly sold out of food prior to closing hour. Two days in a row.

Either that indicates a distinct lack of local breakfast options downtown, or it’s a downtowner celebration of the buzz that has building around Eat since it was announced a few months back. Or both.

Whatever the reason, Eat has announced it will not reopen until Monday, Sep 17, taking off Sunday to reload. Add that Le Thai is also closing Sun–Tue this week (in order to build a better bar and to remodel the front (inside) dining room to include all bar-height tables), and many downtowners will either overrun Pop Up Pizza or the Beat, or have to venture away from the Fremont East area for grub this weekend.

No worries, hungry urbanites: Bar + Bistro in the Arts District will be open, serving their awesome brunch. And the weather looks good for outdoor dining, too.

See you at breakfast in downtown!
