The concept for eatt started when Nicolas Kalpokdjian wasn’t even in Las Vegas, but Paris. He, along with executive chef Yuri Szarzewski and executive pastry chef Vincent Pellerin (both who have backgrounds as chefs at Michelin-starred restaurants) came to Vegas a little under two years ago with one goal: to provide healthy food to Las Vegans.
During the development of eatt, Kalpokdjian even went to a local DMV and asked people standing in line why they didn’t eat healthier. Their answers? Prices. Convenience.
And thus, eatt, complete with healthy vegan food was born.
This airy, Instagram-able restaurant opened June 2016 in Summerlin and we finally made it over nine weeks later.
Let’s start with the food. The menu at eatt features eight vegan options as well as rotating specials.
Choose from starters like beet mousse, minestrone or our favorite — leek soup with spinach and potatoes topped with basil foam. For the main course, they’re one of the spots in Las Vegas offering the Impossible Burger. It comes to the table sandwiched between a hashbrown bun (yes, you read that right), or try an entree such as the ravioli made with organic vegan cheese or moussaka made with the Impossible Burger and grilled eggplant.
Save room for the vegan dessert here — a chocolate “cake” which is a chocolate mousse with mango and pineapple filling along with crunchy puffed rice.
But, the menu itself is only a part of what makes this restaurant so special. The presentation is impeccable. And gorgeous. And it’s where you can clearly see the Michelin background coming into play.
