OFF THE STRIP AT THE LINQ TO OPEN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
Longtime Las Vegas Locals Favorite to Bring “Just Real Food” to the Strip
Off The Strip at The LINQ will open this holiday season. A Las Vegas locals’ favorite since 2007, Off The Strip has built a loyal following thanks to its classic bistro and bar comfort food and genuine, personalized service. Next month, that same fare—plus much more—is coming to The LINQ, along with the restaurant’s signature brand of hospitality. The 2-story, 11,000-square-foot restaurant will be open 24 hours, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Founded by brothers Tom Goldsbury and the late Chef Al Hubbard, Off The Strip immediately became a locals’ hotspot when it opened in Southern Highlands seven years ago. One night, renowned restaurant executive Andrew Belmonti dined and immediately loved the food. Belmonti is known throughout the industry for opening more than 20 of the nation’s most successful restaurants, nightclubs and lounges, including N9NE Steakhouse. Around the same time, Off The Strip in Southern Highlands became known to Caesars executives who lived in the area and frequented the restaurant. Caesars eventually approached Goldsbury and Hubbard about bringing their concept to the Strip. It was that same concept that attracted the husband and wife team of James and Diane Cameron to the project, eventually becoming partners with Goldsbury and Belmonti. The rest was history.
The menu will be simple and clean, featuring the signature comfort favorites Off The Strip is known for including steaks, chops, seafood and pasta dishes. The morning menu will be especially noteworthy as it will feature healthy offerings from the “Fresh and Fit” menu. The cocktail program will consist of craft beers and cocktails. All menus will change seasonally.
As for décor, Off The Strip will boast a contemporary design with rich dark woods, stone, brick and metals. Black chalkboards will showcase inspirational sayings. On the first floor, the open and sleek, high-performance kitchen will be the centerpiece which will add to the bustling ambience and energy. A large staircase leading to the second floor will further accent the height of the 15-foot ceilings. For events, meetings and groups, there will be buy-out, banquet and private party capabilities on both floors of the restaurant. Plans for the second floor will be announced in early 2015.
Indoor and outdoor seating will be available, with the latter situated on prime Las Vegas Strip real estate—the Promenade at The LINQ—and ample opportunity for people-watching. Guests will have direct access to The LINQ Hotel & Casino, as well as The High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel.
“Our customers are family to us and that’s how we treat them. We touch every guest and make sure everyone is having a great meal with us,” says Tom Goldsbury, founder, Off The Strip. “Our food is homegrown fare that’s now found its way to the Strip. With Off The Strip, we’re introducing authentic, Las Vegas locals’-style hospitality to visitors from around the world. It’s what my brother and I always dreamt of doing. Finally making it a reality is an incredible feeling.”
Details on the menu and more information regarding Off The Strip’s opening, including its opening date, will be announced next month.
