SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino has added two original food and beverage concepts by sbe, The SLS Buffet and The Perq Coffee bar. The two new offerings will open along with the property Labor Day weekend.
The modern buffet is an original design by Gensler architects in collaboration with renowned design consultant Philippe Starck, and The Perq marks the partnership between sbe and LAMILL Coffee.
“In line with sbe’s signature approach, the heightened quality and style of The SLS Buffet and The Perq take casual dining to the next level,” said Matt Erickson, senior vice president of restaurant operations at SLS Las Vegas. “We’re excited to unveil these brand new concepts at SLS Las Vegas to continue to diversify the range of superior dining experiences for our guests.”
The SLS Buffet offers Mediterranean, Wood-Grilled, Chinese and Japanese cuisines, with special hot pot, wok, steamer and sushi options. Chinese dishes include barbecued Peking Duck and Chicken and Char Siu Ribs, while Wood-Grilled dishes include the savory Garlic & Thyme-Laced Porchetta Chimichurri.
The SLS Buffet also offers an assortment of desserts, including a range of pastries, fresh doughnuts made in-house daily and “dessert shots,” sweet treats made to perfection and served in shot glasses, with options including exotic cheesecake and carrot cake. Signature cocktails include drinks such as Fig Winner, the perfect match to the Wood-Grilled dishes, made with Bulleit Rye whiskey, Ancho Reyes liqueur, and fig and Dr. Pepper simple syrup.
The Perq at SLS Las Vegas will be the flagship location, with additional shops in development at other SLS Hotels nationwide. Boasting an extensive selection of hand-crafted coffee and tea, The Perq has collaborated with Los Angeles-based specialty roaster LAMILL to craft the SLS Signature Blend in addition to an assortment of specialty drinks featuring syrups made in-house. Along with The Perq, LAMILL Coffee will also be served at Bazaar Meat by José Andrés, Katsuya, Cleo, and Ku Noodle.
“We are so excited to continue to expand upon LAMILL’s existing relationship with sbe that has spanned properties from Beverly Hills to South Beach,” said Craig Min, founder and CEO of LAMILL Coffee. “When envisioning The Perq, we decided upon several seasonal offerings and unique coffee programs that we feel will resonate with the SLS guest.”
Additionally, The Perq offers a daily variety of salads, panini, sweet and savory Danishes and other house-made pastries. Guests can also enjoy freshly-made gelato and ice cream sandwiches like the Nutella Gelato Sandwich made with caramelized sugar brioche.
