FLOWER CHILD is a fantastic all-organic, local produce, and gluten-lite place to dine. Sam Fox has over 50 restaurants in 16 states with 14 different concepts in dining.
Flower Child is located in eight cities, with many more coming soon. There is nowhere in Las Vegas that features food such as this. The restaurant is huge and airy, located across from Boca Park and next to North Italia.
Starters include crushed avocado toast with soft egg, avocado hummus with sweet corn and pumpkin seeds, organic kale and Vietnamese crunch salads, along with a skinny cobb salad to pick from. My favorite was the Mediterranean quinoa with tabbouleh, cauliflower, cucumber, tomato, sweet pepper, pistachio, feta, harissa yogurt vinaigrette. They then offer plates—one for $4, two for $7, and three to sample for $9. Take your pick from grilled asparagus, Sichuan green beans, smashed organic potato, sautéed spinach, Japanese eggplant, Indian spiced cauliflower, sweet corn, and quinoa or gluten-free mac & cheese. All perfectly done and allowing you to add chicken, salmon, or steak. They serve up big bowls of Thai cashew quinoa; Vegas poke with marinated beet, avocado, pickled mushrooms, cucumber, and brown rice; and a Mother Earth bowl with all the ancient grains, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, broccoli pesto, and hemp seed; or Forbidden Rice with black pearl, red japonica, snap peas, and bok choy. Again, you can add proteins. Four wraps, featuring Flying Avocado with smoked turkey, gouda, romaine, tomatoes, and hummus; Thai Dye with spicy tofu; The Rebel, grass-fed steak, charred onion, and horseradish yogurt; and Bird is the Word, with grilled chicken, broccoli, and cheeses. On tap are cold brews, wine, and Kombucha tea, along with lemonade, and hot and cold teas.
Don’t forget all the vegan gluten-free desserts. There are kid’s choices for $6.50. You can also do a “pick a protein & 2 sides.” The prices are right, the seating is both indoor and patio dining.
