The Hakkasan Group is transforming the once-legendary Pure nightclub into Omnia at Caesars Palace, and those clubgoers are going to need to eat. That’s where Brian Malarkey comes in.
Searsucker, a laid-back eatery offering a “contemporary spin on American classic comfort foods” with established locations in San Diego and Austin, is set to open in the spring adjacent to the coming club, with both venues operated by Hakkasan.
“I am honored and thrilled to bring Searsucker to Las Vegas and join the incredible collection of restaurants in this great culinary destination,” Malarkey said in a press release. “It has been a dream of mine, for quite some time, to open a restaurant here.”
Known for appearances on The Taste and Top Chef and for his other California restaurants, Herringbone and Green Acre, Malarkey’s Vegas menu will include dishes like braised pork belly with soft poached egg and brown butter Hollandaise, jalapeño-chorizo corn “off the cob” and beer-braised beef short rib. Sounds like a perfect fit for a 7,500-square-foot space taking design inspiration from retro Americana and cowboy culture … and hearty fare for an ideal pre-club meal.
