Las Vegas Restaurant Week continues through June 29, serving up special meals to fight hunger and benefit our local food bank Three Square. Sunday night at the Kitchen at Atomic, Las Vegas Weekly and sister pub Las Vegas Magazine are among the sponsors for the first-ever CommunEATy social gathering.
Three chefs from three different restaurants—the Kitchen’s Justin Kingsley Hall, Esther’s Kitchen’s James Trees and Las Vegas Country Club’s Michael van Staden—will join forces with event partner Scott Green of Golden Entertainment (and formerly chef at Robert Irvine’s Public House and Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace) to collaborate on a family-style menu that will mimic the traditional “family meal” served at restaurants for staff only. That approach is what makes CommunEATy unique; you’ll be able to eat like a chef.
“The idea is to keep this theme of community going, since we know there’s a yearning for these types of events,” says TaChelle Lawson, chief strategist at organizing company Fig Brand Strategy Firm. “This will be an experience from the chefs’ perspective—how they like to eat, which sometimes is ordering a lot of dishes and really tasting everything and exploring, pushing their palate to new limits.”
COMMUNEATY June 24, 11 p.m., $125. The Kitchen at Atomic, figfirm.com/communeaty.
