On the heels of planned food halls on the Strip and in the Southwest Valley, a new food hall is set to open in downtown Las Vegas. The Fremont Hotel and Casino will launch its new food hall in December, according to a Facebook post. The food hall is part of Boyd Gaming’s $50 million expansion. The 13,150 square foot food hall will house a Steak ‘n Shake, Henderson-based CraftKitchen brunch spot, cozy ramen restaurant Tomo Noodles, southern tender chicken restaurant Huey Magoo’s, San Francisco-based Roli Roti and a dunkin’.
The Downtown Hotel Food Hall is the latest in a recent string of food halls that have started popping up all over Las Vegas. In September, the Aria Resort and Casino announced Proper Eats, a food hall with 12 new restaurants and bars slated to open this winter. And, at UnCommons in the South West, The Sundry will occupy 20,000 square feet with a mix of dine-in and full-service eateries led by award-winning chefs, slated to open early next year. . Even the 24,000 square foot Famous Foods Street Eats food hall debuted at Resorts World just over a year ago, the first to open since Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan started the trend by launching its Block 16 Urban Food Hall in 2018.
