There’s a new place to go for supper (and lunch) in the Strip District.
Supper on Penn, from chef/owner Vincent Perri (who ran the same concept at Federal Galley until earlier this year), officially opened on Wednesday.
The restaurant features all-homemade everything, from house-ground meat and hand-made seitan, to homemade jams and pickles. There’s also a smoker on-site, for the smoked slab bacon and smoked tomato dishes that dot the menu.
Supper on Penn caters to “carnivores, vegans, and everyone in between,” with a menu that’s heavy on vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and gluten-free-on-request options.
The menu will change regularly, and features $2 to $6 “bites” (with a minimum of three orders in any selection), including Stuffed Smoked Tomatoes with vegan ‘meatballs,’ Chilled Corn Soup with pickled jalapeno, and Chicken Montadito, with bacon jam and a deviled quail egg.
Snacks and Sandwiches range in price from $8 to $14, and include options like a BLT with confit pork belly and black garlic aioli on house-made sourdough, Poutine with duck fat fries and truffled beef gravy, Roasted Garlic Hummus with pickled vegetables, and Supper’s house-ground beef burger, a favorite holdover from their Federal Galley days, with aged cheddar on a house pretzel roll.
Rounding out the menu are a selection of larger plates ($19 to $32), including Cavatelli with Chicken, served with charred corn and a brown butter emulsion, and a Ribeye steak, with black eyed peas and spicy green beans.
There’s also a full bar with craft cocktails and local brews.
Supper on Penn serves lunch, dinner and dessert from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays (with the bar open until 10:00 p.m.), and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (with the bar open until midnight).
