Cousins Batuhan Zadeh and Sabri Arslankara debuted the restaurant with early to late hours daily. The duo named the restaurant for Hookava, the hookah bar Zadeh also owns in downtown Reno, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.

Chicken wings, garlic knots, salads, pastas, and subs roundup the menu.

Of note, the restaurant’s vow to deliver pizzas within 20 minutes in the McCarran loop.

New Day Cafe To Bring ‘Southwestern Classics’ to Southwest



Moving its breakfast and lunch menu from the southeast

Breakfast and lunch specialists New Day Cafe has some big changes ahead that the restaurant has yet to make public, according to recently filed public documents.

Operating locations in Colorado Springs and Henderson, since 2012 the restaurant has been easy to find inside a distinctive, round-cornered space, close to the intersection of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Bermuda Road.

Next on the horizon, the cafe will soon begin a tenant improvement four miles to the west at 10420 S. Decatur Blvd. The new southwest expansion inside the Cactus Marketplace retail hub on Decatur Boulevard and near Cactus Avenue will create a rival to the center’s DQ Grill & Chill Restaurant.

Uncovered earlier this month, later this year the Silverado Ranch site will be taken over by the first expansion for California’s Slater’s 50/50, the home of “Burgers, Bacon & Beer” and famous for its its half ground beef and half ground bacon burger patties.

New Day Cafe serves a full menu from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. of egg dishes, healthy omelets, waffles, pancakes, crepes, and French toast, plus familiar lunch choices, like burgers, sandwiches and wraps.

An estimated timetable for the switcheroos has not been revealed.

Robert Solano’s Bomb Tacos To Explode in Downtown’s Fremont East



Home of “the most BOMB gourmet tacos you’ve ever had”

The mystery of what will replace the shuttered Carson Avenue home of Zydeco Po-Boys and its short-lived successor Two Bald Brothers has been solved.

Robert Solano, former executive chef of Mingo Kitchen & Lounge, Mundo, and Olivia’s Latin Cuisine, will expand his Spring Valley Bomb Tacos into the 1,414-square-foot corner spot at 616 E. Carson Ave. It fills a slightly larger footprint than his original 1,000-square-foot hit concept that sits close to Other Mama and the corner of Durango Drive and Twain Avenue in the Global Plaza retail center.

Attached to the LLC behind the new venture, Jeffrey Fine of Fifth Street Gaming and Lev Restaurant Group. Fine’s last attempt at bringing an innovative menu downtown was the fondue-based failed experiment F. Pigalle on Fremont East.

On the Spring Valley menu, street-style tacos, crunchy taquitos, crispy quesadillas, wet burritos, and asada curly fries.

An estimated arrival date or concrete details of the project have yet to be announced.

Giada De Laurentiis Almost Ready To Debut in Baltimore



Plus Pete Wells reviews Tetsu in New York, doesn’t like Vegas dining

BALTIMORE — Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is close to opening her first restaurant on the East Coast. GDL Italian by Giada plans to open in April with a 180-seat eatery at the Horseshoe Casino. The Food Network star tells Eater DC that this casual dining experience will focus on local seafood, pasta, and antipasti. Much like her first restaurant, Giada at The Cromwell, this one will feature an antipasto station, while chefs will work in an open kitchen. Like Pronto by Giada, which just opened at Caesars Palace, the wine list leans toward California and Italy, while the cocktails find inspiration from her grandfather’s movies. [Eater DC]

JBF AWARDS — The James Beard Foundation honored chef José Andrés of ThinkFoodGroup and founder of World Central Kitchen, with the 2018 James Beard Humanitarian Award. Together with World Central Kitchen and #ChefsforPuertoRico, Andrés served more than 3.3 million meals in Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria in 2017. He has Bazaar Meat at the SLS Las Vegas, and é Bar, Jaleo, and China Poblano at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. [EaterWire]

NEW YORK CITY — New York Times restaurant critic Pete Wells sure doesn’t like Las Vegas. His latest review of Masayoshi Takayama’s Tetsu, which opened in November in TriBecA takes a few stabs at the dining scene in Las Vegas. “Eating in that city can be a wild ride, but the dining rooms often have an oversize, mall-like scale and the menus a safe, something-for-everyone vagueness — qualities that, transplanted to New York, can be real buzzkills,” he writes. “As far as restaurants go, what happens in Vegas should usually stay in Vegas.” Of course, the Vegas version inside BarMasa at Aria closes in April.

Korean Coffee from Gäbi Coffee & Bakery Heads to Chinatown



‘Exotic, But Stylish’ coffee shop offers a “greehouse roasting room”

First revealed last August, Gäbi Coffee & Bakery is racing to debut in March at the Mountain Point Business Park on Spring Mountain, already home to Taiwan’s Chatime, Hobak Korean BBQ, and the Tokyo-style dishes at Ramen Hashi.

The 2,944-square-foot Korean coffee concept will welcome customers to an “exotic, but stylish” interior that appears to be carefully following early plans created by locals W G Constructors. The coffee shop and bakery will add a “greehouse roasting room,” indoor trees, vintage hardware, Edison bulbs handing from driftwood, and window ledge seating, built with stacks of books looking out onto Spring Mountain Road.

Currently hiring, Gabi’s full menu has yet to be revealed, but will serve a full range of coffee drinks, baked goods created on site such as croissants, bread, Danishes, tarts, and cakes, plus sandwiches and savory choices featuring dressings and sauces made in house.

The cafe’s name is inspired by the 2012 Korean historical drama, Gabi, based on the failed 1898 assassination attempt of King Gojong by spiking his cups of coffee with opium.

Kenny Chye OUT at Veggie House and Vegeway Centennial



Now he’s opening a new vegan Asian restaurant in Chinatown

Last September, on a roll of acclaim for his vegan and vegetarian menus at Veggie House and two Vegeway drive-thru locations, chef Kenny Chye floated the idea of expanding his brand to the Strip.

Five months later, “Chef Kenny” is down to one outpost of Vegeway and is now striking out on his own in Chinatown.

Via social media, Chye updated fans that he is no longer the Veggie House chef and owner, revealing on his Facebook page, “my two greedy partner took it when I was in vacation.” He has yet to share a reason for his departure from the fast-casual Vegeway in Centennial, which he debuted last year in January.

Chye is now concentrating on his original Vegeway outpost, serving plant-based fast food in the southeast at 7790 S. Jones Blvd. since September 2016.

He is also teasing his next vegan dining venture, featuring “Chinese cooking, sushi and pho gluten free noodle.” A rendering for the space shows it will take over the shuttered Pho Kitchen at the Rainbow Center retail hub, close to the intersection of Rainbow Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road and anchored by the Greenland Supermarket. An estimated opening date has not been announced.
