About Greene Street Kitchen
Before we dive into the (amazing) cuisine, let’s talk about the restaurant itself and how it got started. Designed by the Rockwell Group, the restaurant was created by Clique Hospitality and has a unique “speakeasy” feel. Visitors enter through a fully-functional video arcade featuring an 8-bit videogame-inspired floor and retro games. The arcade also has a Coca-Cola-inspired “vending machine” that actually serves as a door that leads you into the main bar and lounge area.
Once you pass through the secret door, you walk through a tunnel before finding yourself in a 5,000-square-foot restaurant with décor inspired by the 1970s in New York City’s Soho district. The restaurant has several rooms, all of which are decorated with graffiti that echoes the punk, pop, and hip-hop culture that thrived during the era. No matter where you look, there is something new to discover. There is artwork from several famous artists, including Las Vegas’ first permanent work by Banksy.
Greene Street is designed to be part food haven, part art gallery. It serves up amazing modern cuisine in an atmosphere filled with historic art to create a truly unique experience for everyone who visits.
A lot of chefs and restaurants refer to the foods they serve as works of art, but at Greene Street Kitchen, they really mean it.

Greene Street Kitchen features dishes from chef de cuisine Lanny Chin and executive chef Joe Zanelli and specializes in fresh seafood. If you are in the mood for something over-the-top, try the Legs and Eggs entrée, which features king crab legs and Kaluga caviar, or the 42-ounce tomahawk ribeye steak. Served with creamy Au Poivre and Bordelaise sauce, this meal is a carnivore’s dream.
There are plenty of lighter options, too. Try the specialty sushi, sashimi, or oysters. If you aren’t much of a seafood person, Greene Street also offers classics like buffalo wings and an ultimate burger with bacon jam.

Made from vodka, pineapple, melon grass, ginger, cilantro, lime, and a flower sphere, this drink is as unique as the artists of the era.
