CRAFTkitchen Celebrates Two Years with All-star brunch and Free Cupcakes

October 27 marks CRAFTkitchen's two-year anniversary, and it's difficult to put into words just how grateful we are for our community members who've helped us reach this milestone.

As a family of chefs who used to spend our days in the kitchen of high-end resorts helping bring others' visions to life, we always dreamt of the day we could open our own restaurant where we were free to do one thing: play. We eventually decided to leave the five-diamond life behind in pursuit of that very dream—and what came out of our efforts was CRAFTkitchen. When we started CRAFT, we had no idea just how amazing, fulfilling and challenging the adventure would be, and we wouldn't trade it for the world.

From the 100+ ever-changing weekend brunch menus we've CRAFTed up, to the countless community events we've been honored to be a part of, to the day we watched table after table "pay it forward" until over 20 tables had paid for another's tab, we've had an amazing two years—all thanks to this generous, tight-knit community. Nothing fuels us more than serving up food that makes you smile, and we truly can't thank you enough for supporting local and visiting us day after day after day. So, we want to take a moment to say thank you the best way we know how—with FOOD. We invite you to join us as we celebrate:

Free Cupcakes:

Dine-in customers can enjoy a complimentary housemade cupcake while supplies last on Friday, October 27 between 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 4 p.m.-9 p.m.

All-Star Brunch:

Join us for our first-ever "All Star Brunch" on October 28 and 29, from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. We've rounded up our guests' favorite specials (pictured above in the photo gallery) from the last two years to create one, not-to-be-messed-with brunch menu, featuring fan-favorites like our Birthday Cake Pancakes, Pumpkin Waffles, Crab Cake Benedict, CK Monkey Bread, Housemade Pop-Tarts and Oxtail Fries. 

You can read more about the CRAFTkitchen anniversary celebration here or contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to celebrating with you and can't wait for many more years to come in this amazing community!

We're so excited to announce another upcoming community happening that we're honored to be a part of—the March of Dimes' Signature Chefs Auction is set to take place on October 26 at 6:30 p.m. at Green Valley Ranch Resort. The annual event works to gather the finest culinary talent from across the Las Vegas Valley for a night of tasty treats and creative bites, all in the name of supporting the March of Dimes mission. Along with 14 other talented chefs from across the valley, CRAFTkitchen chefs and owners Jaret and Tami Blinn will be in attendance, serving up specially CRAFTed small bites for the evening.

The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Every year, 15 million babies are born prematurely worldwide, and 1 million will die before their first birthday. Your support and attendance at the Signature Chefs Auction will help the organization fund research, education, advocacy and programs that ensure more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.

At the Signature Chefs event, you can expect to enjoy a 90-minute tasting experience before taking your seat for the auction portion of the evening (during which dessert will be served). On behalf of CRAFTkitchen, Chefs Jaret and Tami be serving up two tasty items, which they've CRAFTed up just for this special night:

Our Hot Item: Black Truffle Stuffed Profiterole, Shaved Fresh Black Truffles

Our Cold Item: Foie Gras Torchon, Spiced Toasted Brioche, Port Poached Fig Compote, Frangelico Gelée

CRAFTkitchen Donates Food in Support of the Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation

When we founded CRAFTkitchen, one of the things we were most excited about was having the ability to provide high-quality, fresh food for community events and important causes. A local family ourselves, we’re always on the hunt for opportunities to help out families in need throughout the Las Vegas and Henderson communities. We’re so excited to announce, then, that we’ll be donating food for the The Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation and The Golden Monarch Council’s 18th Annual “Wine Tasting Extravaganza.” We could not think of a more important cause to be a part of—and we can’t wait for the event to get underway.

The Wine Tasting Extravaganza will be held at Gaudin Porsche at 215 and Rainbow on Thursday, October 12 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase online.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Nathan Adelson Hospice’s Pediatric Program as well as its Families in Need Program, both of provide help to those in need of a wide range of goods and services while receiving care from the Nathan Adelson Hospice, Southern Nevada’s largest non-profit hospice.

On average, Nathan Adelson Hospice provides help for 22 children and their families each month and has been providing patients, children and their loved ones with comprehensive end-of-life care for nearly 40 years. The Foundation’s mission is to ensure that “no individual ends the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain,” and we hope you’ll come out on October 12 in support of such an important cause.

Be sure to look for the CRAFTkitchen booth. We will be serving up two items:

-Housemade meatballs, fresh ricotta, CK pomodoro, micro basil

-Smoked salmon, fresh dill blini, creme fraiche caviar

Swing by to try them both, and say hi to Chef Jaret and Chef Tami while you’re there. We can’t wait to see you!
