TABLE TALK: Breakfast and lunch are the stars in new restaurant
It’s been a gourmet grocery store, a pizza joint and a make-a-meal concept. Coming up next: New Day Café at 5901 Delmonico Dr.. It will serve breakfast and lunch open 7 a.m.-3 p.m.Owners Arturo and Theresa Luna are shooting to open the end of February or the first of March. They have two New Day Café stores in Las Vegas, Nev., where the menu features build-your-own omelets, pancakes, waffles and other typical breakfast items. Visit newdaycafe.com.
Anne Morris, owner of Phat Hattie’s Smokehouse BBQ, announced Jan. 11 on the restaurant’s Facebook page, “We are closed for good.”
Morris served her award-winning cue first from her cute food truck in the parking lot at the corner of Academy and Union. Later she took a leap into brick and mortar at the no-defunct restaurant at 1169 Circle Dr. She will keep the food cart, saying, “I am reopening the food cart in a totally new capacity. I learned the hard way, and am anxious to shake up this town again, but this time with profit. No more bbq for me.”
The new concept?
“I’ll be doing loaded spuds,” she said. “Lunch in a russet. The Hut and I will go to business parks offering alternative lunch for employees, four days a week.”
