RESTAURANT NEWS

Openings

Corner Bar Management founder Ryan Doherty will bring Peyote, the company’s latest boutique restaurant, to Fergusons Downtown. Expected to open in September in the former La Manja space, the décor will feature vibrant colors via a Palm Springs-inspired open-air patio with desert-hues, a 3D-mapped LED bistro-light canvas with 1,500 lights that respond to music and a cactus and succulent garden. The upscale brunch and dinner menu will include heirloom tomato summer squash tart; mini shrimp toast topped with wild smoked salmon roe; grilled pork belly eggs Benedict; risotto with grilled corn, sunflower seeds, leeks and almond milk; and plant-based JUST egg quiche with spinach, caramelized leeks and mushroom in a non-dairy pie crust. The cocktail menu, designed by former Southern Glazer’s head of whiskey education Max Solano, includes creations such as Hey, Smokey!, a 30-day barrel-aged cocktail with bourbon, apple brandy, Aperol, Amaro Nonino, and orange and tobacco bitters smoked with a proprietary wood blend. Peyote, 1028 E. Fremont St., Las Vegas, NV 89101, no phone.
