Legitimate question: How did it take us this long to get our first 24/7 bacon-inspired restaurant concept? Bacon Nation recently opened on the D’s second floor, a full-on restaurant with seating for 120, comfy leather booths for classy bacon over-indulgence and a private dining room perfect for sports watch parties. It’s a real place, y'all.
You think you know what to expect from the menu, created by chef Josh Green (SkinnyFats, Greens & Proteins). But you don’t. Create a tasting from the Nation’s selection of honey-cured, thick-cut bacon, flavored with anything and everything, tajín to lemon pepper to chocolate to everything bagel. The signature French Toast Box is a block of breakfast-y bread with bacon, caramelized bananas and peanut butter mousse ($14). It’s less putting bacon on everything and more building around bacon, like the Napoleon’s French Dip sandwich ($18), with Gouda, creamy horseradish and au jus to dip this bacon-filled, griddled French bread creation.
Then you find the holy grail—the Reverse BLT ($18). It’s the classic sandwich we all love, created in a parallel dimension where we don’t use bread because we have bacon. Too much? How dare you. Never question the authority of Bacon Nation.
BACON NATION The D, 702-388-2250, baconnationlv.com. 24/7.
