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 (and affordable) 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 three vegan entrees, three vegan sides and three vegan desserts. The entrees aren’t what most would really define as filling entrees but if you couple it with a side, you’re good.
The beet, apple and soy sprouts salad is divine, as is the quinoa tabbouleh filled with dried grapes, mint and more, and their seasonal dessert (which just so happens to be a peach poached in mint sauce with strawberries and stuffed with a truffle) is d.i.v.i.n.e.
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.
While we’d love to see more vegan eats here, rumor has it there’s more to come. Overall, the vegan items they do have are beautiful, healthy and the staff and ambiance are on point.
