Dapper Development is planning a big project in Centennial Hills. Paperwork submitted this month to the Las Vegas Planning Commission shows plans for a development on the northwest corner of the intersection between North Durango Drive and West Centennial Parkway. The paperwork names several restaurant tenants requesting entitlements to open in the new development.
One of these is locally-born chain SkinnyFats. SkinnyFats first opened in the summer of 2013 and quickly had lines out the door. The angel-on-one-shoulder, devil-on-the-other chain now has five locations in the Las Vegas Valley, plus a location in Salt Lake City and another planned for Denver.
The SkinnyFats menu is split into sections like Things In Bowls and Between the Buns, which are themselves subdivided into a Healthy Side and a Happy Side. So if you want a Thing in a Bowl, you can go, on one side, with Smoke in a Bowl (Agave BBQ chicken, Hawaiian Mix, black bean pico, cilantro yo, Jasmine rice) or, on the other, with Curry Be Happy, with slow braised short rib, house made yellow Thai coconut curry, golden raisins, Jasmine rice, and mint crème fraiche.
Similarly, if you’re choosing from tacos, you can go on the Healthy Side with the Turnip Taco (filet mignon, pico, jicama, habanero lime crema, wheat tortilla) or the Happy Side with the Ahi Taco San (Tempura ahi, sriracha slaw, mango pico, teriyaki, spicy aioli in a puffed shell).
According to the submitted paperwork, the SkinnyFats location would occupy 3,000 square feet, with a 1,430 square-foot patio, and it would feature a full bar. The location, like the rest of the development, is to be built from the ground up.
What Now reached out to SkinnyFats owner Reed Allen Slobusky on Thursday. Slobusky confirmed the existence of these plans but said that no lease has yet been signed for the location.
