This year’s addition of T-Mobile Arena to the Las Vegas Strip has forever altered the landscape, and one of its impacts is the pre- and post-event crowd looking for food and fun outside the arena and along the Boulevard, not just inside a casino.
Just around the corner from T-Mobile lies Tom’s Urban, a casual and eclectic dining option tailor-made for this party-ready audience. The indoor-outdoor restaurant and bar recently added a variety of new items to its breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menus, including spicy, crispy, fried chicken with a sweet cornbread pancake; Huevos Benedicto—pork carnitas with poached eggs and green chile Hollandaise sauce; the Pig in the Garden pizza with pepperoni, ham, bacon, herb-roasted mushrooms and asadero cheese; and shrimp and grits, a Tom’s signature full of Cajun spice and creamy cheddar polenta.
With its flavor-packed renditions of familiar comfort-food favorites, it’s no surprise Tom’s Urban (which also has a location at the similarly memorable LA Live complex) hits the spot before or after a monumental concert or event. Easy fun like this is the new Vegas way. Tom’s Urban at New York-New York, 702-740-6766; Sunday-Thursday 7 a.m.-1 a.m., Friday & Saturday 7 a.m.-3 a.m.
