LAS VEGAS (January 13, 2015) – Tom’s Urban, a modern and casual dining concept, is now open and serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night at New York-New York Hotel & Casino. Located on the casino floor and adjacent to the resort’s iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the venue features a contemporary dining experience offering innovative, yet familiar dishes coupled with a creative bar program.
“We are delighted to open our newest Tom’s Urban, located at New York-New York in Las Vegas, marking our third location in the U.S.,” said Tom Ryan, the mastermind behind Tom’s Urban. “We are in the perfect location to appeal to all types of consumers. Co-founder, Rick Schaden and I spent time developing an approachable, modern casual dining experience in a fun atmosphere and we’re excited to showcase Tom’s in the heart of the city.”
Spanning over 12,000 square feet, Tom’s Urban has a guest capacity of more than 480 people for both indoor and outdoor seating, complete with three energetic, full-service bars. Featuring a dynamic design, the restaurant’s high-energy environment infused with reclaimed wood, warm colors and lively patio, makes this the perfect setting to be your first, next and last place to meet, eat and drink.
Tom Ryan and his culinary team have created a spirited menu with something for everyone. Featuring a distinctive and eclectic blend of the world’s favorite street foods including flavors such as American, Asian, Latin, and Middle Eastern, guests can opt to share or jump start their meal with Lowcountry Shrimp and Grits (Cajun shrimp, crispy pork belly, creamy cheese grits); Xiangxiang Crispy Duck Wings (hoisin glaze, Asian peanut slaw); and Filet Mignon Steak Sliders (grilled filet mignon medallions, havarti cheese, arugula, hollandaise sauce, fresh tarragon, butter-toasted brioche buns), to name a few. 
The savory portion of the menu continues with a wide-variety of dishes, but with Tom’s signature twist. Highlights include the Sin City Burger (American cheese, fried egg, crispy onions, applewood-smoked bacon, BBQ sauce); Tom’s “Big & Sticky” Rib Back (St. Louis ribs hardwood smoked, slow cooked, double sauced and glazed with house made BBQ sauce; served with choice of side); French Pan Roasted Chicken (crispy 1/2 chicken, herb marinated, pan roasted and glazed with chicken demi, served with choice of side) and much more! 
A selection of breakfast and late night items hit the spot, such as the Hangover Slopper (Certified Angus Beef burger on a butter-toasted brioche bun, smothered with pork green chile, queso fresco, pico de gallo, cheddar and jack and topped with two fried eggs); Killer Chilaquiles (tri-colored tortilla chips simmered in tomatillo salsa, topped with two farm fresh eggs any style, asadero, cilantro crème, queso fresco, pico de gallo); and Breakfast Burritos (egg and cheese with your choice of steak, bacon or sausage). 
Paired to elevate and complement the overall experience, guests can indulge in a great selection of handcrafted cocktails, craft beers (including 35 plus options on tap), fine wines and signature “to-go” drinks. Featured libations include WTF (Jim Beam whiskey, red wine, Brooklyn Beer, orange and blackberry liqueur); Dark + Stormier (Kraken Black spiced rum, Tom’s house made ginger brew); and Bacon Bourbon Mary (bacon infused Jim Beam bourbon, house made Bloody Mary mix, cream cheese schmear) available in various sizes including “Pint” (16 oz.), “Large” (22 oz.) and “Tom’s” (33 oz.).
“Just steps away from the Brooklyn Bridge, Tom’s Urban provides the complete dining experience – from the fantastic flavors, to the design and atmosphere, to the incredible views – that will have guests coming back for more,” said New York-New York President and COO, Cynthia Kiser Murphey. “Visitors to Las Vegas seek a fun experience and we believe that Tom’s Urban will immediately become a go-to spot on The Strip.”
