“The Beast” by Todd English Roars To Life Soon At AREA15
Fresh Take On Food Hall by Four-Time James Beard Award winner
The Beast food hall is a recent creation from the creative mind of renowned chef, restaurateur and four-time James Beard Award winner, Todd English. The spacious, faux flame-enclosed dining room features an abundance of seating and dining options and is located inside AREA15, Las Vegas’ newest, immersive art and entertainment district, located minutes from The Strip. The Beast kitchen will collaborate on menus and prepare dishes for a number AREA15’s experiences including Dueling Axes, Emporium, Five Iron Golf and ongoing events and immersive dining experiences inside the venue.
“If Mad Max and Burning Man had a child it would be The Beast,” said Todd English, owner and Chef of The Beast. “This restaurant is unlike any other that I’ve envisioned. It’s like stepping into a cozy hearth to feast and be merry. We are so happy to be part of the amazing world that is AREA15 and look forward to bringing The Beast fully to life and coming out of the pandemic as a community.”
“AREA15 is the first all-encompassing development to acknowledge today’s consumer seeks more narrative-driven, over-the-top, imaginative experiences than ever before,” said Winston Fisher, chief executive officer, AREA15. “We’re leaning into that with The Beast to offer the first truly transformational dining concept of its kind.”
The food hall gives guests a wide array of dining options, truly offering something for everyone. Ease into the dungeon-like den by sipping some LaVazza coffee or hitting the Beast bar for a craft cocktail or local brew while taking in the sensory experience. The Beast team, overseen by Chef Todd English, includes Corporate Executive Chef Kyle Kingrey, General Manager Brad Kleiss, Executive Chef Sani Hebaj, Pitmasters Joe Woodel and Orelle Young as well as Pastry Chef, Amanda Bryant. English brings his perfected pizzas to visitors of AREA15, including Caprese, Peking Duck, Smoked Mushroom with camembert, Fig and Prosciutto, Vegan Pizza with Beyond Meat Sausage, Buffalo Cauliflower and more, served at the Belly of the Beast Pizza.
