Culinary Dropout Coming to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

This might be old news to some — and I did see the press release a couple months ago — but I’m just now getting around to posting it on this site. Yeah, I’m a little lazy when it comes to updating this site. Anyway, the press release it copied and pasted below for your viewing pleasure.

Fox Restaurant Concepts’ Culinary Dropout Bets On Vegas as Next Location, Opening Scheduled Summer 2012
Gastropub features craft cocktails, eclectic pub fare perfect for late-night diners

LAS VEGAS –  (March 30, 2012) – Five-time James Beard Foundation semi-finalist for Outstanding Restaurateur, Sam Fox, is set to open his first restaurant concept in Las Vegas. The edgy gastropub, Culinary Dropout, will open this summer at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Conveniently located near the casino floor and adjacent to the pool, the new Hard Rock location is more than 6,000 square-feet of swank drinking and dining interior, with an additional 3,000-square-foot patio ready to host more than 320 hungry and thirsty Vegas foodies.

This distinctive gastropub will stay true to the soulful, relaxed ambiance of the first location in Scottsdale, Ariz., where Culinary Dropout has already made a name for itself as a day-drinking and late-night destination.

The hip- and rebel-style of Culinary Dropout makes it a the perfect hangout to sip creative libations, savor tasty pub grub and take in live music several times a week.

“We believe the 24/7 culture of Las Vegas will welcome the addition of Culinary Dropout,” said Sam Fox, CEO of Fox Restaurant Concepts. “Furthermore, the atmosphere of the Hard Rock Hotel complements the hip but never pretentious vibe of Culinary Dropout.”

While booze fans will enjoy a menu that has dedicated two-thirds to beer, wine, and unique cocktails, eaters will relish amped up pub-style appetizers, salads, sandwiches and entrees, along with a one-of-a-kind antipasti menu showcasing delicious and hard-to-find meats, cheeses and vegetables.

Culinary Dropout’s happy hour features delectable bar snacks like hot and salty house-made pretzels with sultry provolone fondue. Appetizers like chilled oysters get dinner off to an aphrodisiacal start, followed by juicy and mouthwatering shaved prime rib dip served with onion soup. Another cult favorite is the crunchy fried chicken dinner served with fresh buttermilk biscuits and a succulent drizzle of local honey.

Vegas specific hours and opening information will be available soon. For current menu offerings or for more information about Culinary Dropout, visit <> . You can also find Culinary Dropout on Twitter at @Culnrydropout or on Facebook at
