Other than carved-in-stone franchises like Brio, California Pizza Kitchen, Claim Jumper and Yard House, the dining options at Town Square are ever-evolving. Every time we turn around, a restaurant has closed or another is getting ready to open.
Ranch House Kitchen, which occupied the second-story spot near Blue Martini, closed recently. That’s strike two at that site, formerly Cadillac Ranch. But two new replacement eateries are on the way this month, both familiar names and flavors for local diners.
Capriotti’s, perhaps Las Vegas’ favorite sandwich shop, is set to open in March in the shop formerly known as Johnny McGuire’s (right across from the Rave movie theaters). And seafood house Bonefish Grill, once a tenant at the District at Green Valley Ranch, will soon occupy a free-standing northern Town Square site near the Texas de Brazil steakhouse.
These additions will bring the count to 15 restaurants at Town Square.
Finding unique eats in this outdoor mall hasn’t always been easy. One of the possibly overlooked restaurants at Town Square is I Love Burgers, which also has a Strip store at Palazzo. The burger joint is making things easier on locals with some new menu offerings at lower prices, including the I Love Bacon burger ($5.95) and the Spicy Inferno burger ($5.35). All entrée prices are now under $10, with a classic standard burger coming in at $3.65 and a side of fries for two bucks.
I Love Burger has also rolled out its new Happiest Hour, including the $6 Slam Dunk special at the bar (available through April) with a burger, fries and draft beer. Happiest Hour runs all day, every day, pretty happy indeed.
