Flour & Barley Opens in the LINQ
The LINQ in between the Flamingo Hilton and the Quad Hotel has been creating quite a buzz among Vegas locals and tourists alike. The Brooklyn Bowl music and bowling venue alone has hosted such artists as The Roots and Elvis Costello and O’Shea’s was packed for St. Patrick’s Day. One restaurant that many people were anticipating, though, has opened on March 18th. Block 16’s third restaurant in the past three months: Flour & Barley. This 3,800 sq. foot spot offers a unique spin on a pizzeria eatery. The creative menu includes individual brick oven-style pizzas with wood-fired crusts made with All Trump flour, San Marzano tomatoes, whole milk mozzarella and house-made toppings along with Italian-inspired appetizers, pasta dishes, Panini’s and salads. Also impressive are the six draft beers and over 45 bottled large format craft beers from all over the country. F&B also offers keg white and red wine as well as cask iron beers and signature cocktails.
The decor has an east coast feeling of being in an exclusive baseball basement complete with the stadium-seating ceiling, natural wood and brick interior as well as baseball-glove material cushions. The bar stools are made from recycled oil cans and the outside patio chairs are crafted from recycled Coca-Cola cans. The space also boasts a 1,200 sq. foot patio opening to the entertainment district, and a to-go window serving fresh-made slices, making it well situated to serve guests of the LINQ’s various attractions including the highly anticipated High Roller Ferris Wheel. So what are you waiting for Las Vegas? Go grab a slice! -Kristina Johnson
