EXTREMELY AWESOME VEGAN BAR IN LAS VEGAS – BAR BOULEVARD
Bar Boulevard arose from a friendship between two like-minded vegans with a passion for sharing plant-based food. Darren Picone partnered with a local vegan chef, known on Instagram as Steven the Vegan, to bring the concept to life. The pair met when they worked at Vegan Meals by Mindy, a Las Vegas-based vegan ready meal company. Steven the Vegan also operates a plant-based catering service, Human(e) Food 702.
Vegans Baby noted some citation of the Angel “From there a friendship blossomed and the concept evolved,” explains Angel Alonzo, creative director and kitchen manager for Bar Boulevard. “We are a small unconventional family that simply wants to bring life and color to the neighborhood and make a change in the world.”The opening of the restaurant fills a gap in the vegan dining scene, offering up a pure vegan bar with a vegan chef at its helm.
Eater las vegas explain that Expanding the current trend of vegan restaurants headed to the valley, newcomer Bar Boulevard will also be adding a plant-based cocktail bar experience to the mix. Located at 3315 Russell Road, the bar will take over the easy-to-spot corner building at the Pecos Plaza retail center, at the intersection of Russell and Pecos Roads. The 2,415-square-foot corner space, featuring a prominent raised roof, will take advantage of an existing dog-friendly patio area on two sides of the restaurant. It joins fellow plaza dining neighbors La Papaya Deli and Hometown Eats. Executive chef Steveo Vegano is overseeing the kitchen, that so far has previewed pad Thai noodles among its 100 percent vegan menu.
