Thrilled to #supportlocal with an office favorite, CRAFTkitchen once again catered lunch on Thursday, Chef Blinn predictably arriving early with all the necessary items and this time presenting attendees with a Latin-themed meal before heading to Utah and a weekend of coaching his son’s baseball team

By no means a “Mexican” Restaurant, but nonetheless offering Meats such as Carnitas and Chorizo daily as part of Omelets, Bennys and more, it was around 11:20am that Jaret arrived porting several trays and bowls all maintained at appropriate temperatures, a build-your-own Taco bar particularly impressive thanks to condiments including housemade Guacamole, Lime Tortilla Chips, Pico de Gallo and Salsa.

Always well-portioned and fair-priced, a group of twenty-five getting their fill with plenty of leftovers packed to-go, it was beginning with aforementioned Tacos that several Hispanic employees praised both Tinga-style Chicken and slowly simmered Pork, the light acidity of each pairing nicely with mashed Avocados bright with Garlic plus julienned Radish, diced Onions and more.

Additionally impressing with Ceviche, each individual shooter chilled with Shrimp bathed in Citrus, it was after eyeing “Elote Dip” with skepticism that word quickly spread of it being delicious, all the flavors of Street Corn delivered amidst the texture of Korean Corn Cheese while CRAFTkitchen’s Beans and Rice also performed admirably.

Not about to forget Dessert, a platter of Chocolate Tres Leches plus two trays of Churros receiving universal praise, it was as an added bonus that four larger Baked Goods were provided, CRAFTkitchen’s signature Kouign Amann currently dressed in fresh Strawberries while two Cookies and an Almond Croissant stuffed with juicy Peaches were also textbook in terms of texture and a reminder of Jaret’s many years as an executive Pastry Chef from Bellagio to Red Rock.

Always happy to #supportlocal with an office favorite, CRAFTkitchen’s re-opening on May 1st offered an opportunity to cater Cinco de Mayo, and just as in the past Chef Jaret Blinn predictably arrived early with all the necessary items for a delicious holiday-themed Lunch.

Previously taking on ethnic themes, this the third time for Mexican, it was largely from CRAFTkitchen’s current take-out menu that eight items were presented, savories starting with housemade Tortilla Chips plus a twist of lime that pair beautifully to creamy Street Corn Dip.

Always well-portioned and fair-priced, a group of twenty-five getting their fill with plenty of leftovers packed to-go, it was alongside these that guests enjoyed Fresh Salad and sides including Spanish Rice, though a tray entitled Cilantro Lime Black Beans was the biggest hit thanks to expected balance despite otherwise bold flavors.

Offering two Entrees, the better Enchilada largely dependent on one’s personal opinion of Tomatillos versus smoky Poblano Pepper “Rojo Sauce,” Dessert continued the theme with Flan and Tres Leches, plus a special gift box including Las Vegas’ best Kouign Amann, an Almond Croissant and a shockingly moist Vegan-Gluten Free Muffin.

I like coming to this place for breakfast and lunch. The service is always good and the restaurant is always super clean. The pastries are always yummy and the quiche of the day is usually super yummy. I went today and the quiche had ham in it and because I don’t eat pork, I didn’t get it. The matcha latte is some of the best matcha I’ve had. However, today was my first time getting the Chilaquiles and I had high hopes for it. While the housemade tasting chips were good, there weren’t enough black beans, pico de gallo or sour cream. It was just a bunch of chips with one egg ontop. I thought the beans would be buried underneath but they weren’t. I then got the chocolate bread pudding which was lackluster as well. On the bright side, the small bread pastry seen in the picture with the matcha was super yummy. I’ll ask for that next time. The waffles are good here, so I’d suggest getting those over the Chilaquiles. I’ll be back but I won’t be getting those two dishes again.

This restaurant closes about 3pm daily. Decent vegan menu and most definitely not a typical list of menu items. Bottomless mimosas for 2 hours. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Parking available. Busy location so expect a wait.
