The first Downtown Las Vegas venture from the Wolfgang Puck team, 1228 Main has quickly evolved from a bakery supplying bread and pastries to all of Puck’s local restaurants, to one of the most exciting dining destinations in the booming Arts District. Credit that to its ability to adapt Puck’s world-class food and service to the laid-back vibe of the bohemian neighborhood.
The restaurant first made waves as a quick-casual breakfast and lunch spot. Dinner and weekend brunch menus were added shortly thereafter, along with waiter service at all meals. (You can still order at the counter if you like.) And a bar area worthy of the trendy district rounds out the offerings.
Weekday breakfast options (available until 1 p.m) include croissant French Toast, a breakfast sandwich, smoked salmon on potato latkes, and Tunisian shakshuka. A collection of salads and sandwiches come online at 11 a.m. And when dinnertime rolls around, and they roll out a full menu of multi-cultural items worthy of the Puck name (with noticeably off-Strip pricing). Think kushi oysters, Spanish anchovies and steak tartare as appetizers, with pastas, pork chops and a warm and welcoming truffle chicken pot pie among the entrees.
PRO TIP: Pick up some bread or pastries to take home.
