Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

Healthy and delicious food is sometimes contradictory.  So many places promote wellness and health and actually don’t know how to make whole foods taste good.  Publicus in downtown Las Vegas is one of those places that gets healthy and delicious right.  Their daily changing specials and whatever they have on the counter (it could be a quinoa and roasted vegetable salad or an open faced toasted sourdough with cherry tomatoes cheese) is always fresh and flavorful.  It has become a regular weekend place for us in Vegas that when we do go, the manager already knows what the kids want to eat.  I’ve had a delicious spicy black rice and poached egg bowl with pickled ginger, a simple sourdough and avocado toast and filling brunch plates on the weekends.

Coffee is fantastic (none of those cappuccinos being served in gigantic cups that then makes the ratio of espresso and milk all wrong).  Plus, Publicus is a really nice place to hang out and get a bite or a coffee during the day, be surrounded by mostly locals and feel so far away from the lights, bling and tourists of the Strip.  When you’re done, head over to the newish Downtown Container Park – a complex of restaurants and shops made of colorfully painted shipping containers with a large playground deck in the middle for the kids to run around in.
