This past Friday I had the pleasure of visiting Eat Drink Wild and met with General Manager Jenifer Pleas, who was kind enough to spend some time talking to me about their goals and vision for the restaurant, and share some amazing menu items with me and my family.
(This picture shows a side door, not the actual entrance which is 150 Las Vegas Blvd.) They decided it was a great idea and the second Eat Drink Wild opened for business here on September 28, 2013.
General Manager Jenifer Pleas sat down with me to talk about Las Vegas’s Eat Drink Wild just one day before their one-week anniversary. If learning that Eat Drink Wild was entirely gluten free wasn’t enough to make my day, hearing Jenifer’s thoughts on buying local was.
“My dad is and has always been a farmer, I’m a big proponent of food going right from the ground to the table when possible” Jenifer divulged. When I mentioned to Jenifer that Eat Drink Wild was the first 100% gluten free restaurant in Las Vegas she was proud to explain that it was intentional.
Jenifer explained that during the hiring process all potential employees were asked about their knowledge of gluten free foods, cross contamination, and vegan. They use Audi’s gluten free white bread, topped with the most delicious, creamy mozzarella I’ve ever tasted, fresh, sweet tomatoes, and a vinaigrette that can only be described as perfect.
The bruschetta is the only thing I didn’t get a picture of, it disappeared so fast there just wasn’t time! Since this was our first (but not our last) visit to Eat Drink Wild we asked Jenifer, and our friendly server Amanda to recommend some of their favorite entrées.
I’m not big on beets, and I’ve never had almond crusted goat cheese, but I have to tell you, it’s a fantastic combination. *Ignore the little silver dish on the side, that’s not dressing its my soup sample that my toddler ended up hijacking.
I’ve come to realize that goat cheese is something totally different when covered in an almond “breading”. Besides smelling delicious they looked mouth watering, and I can assure you that they tasted great as well.
The Chicken Tikki Masala Pizza was my non gluten free husband’s absolute favorite, with the goat cheese from the salad being a close second, although he said it was a tie with the soup. He had never eaten goat cheese, and being one to want him to experience new things I didn’t mention what it was until after he told me he loved it and was reading the menu to find out what it was.
The Chicken Tikki Masala Pizza packs a slight spicy punch, but not enough to deter even our toddler. It was crisp throughout on the Local Mozzarella side, and only one middle piece on the Chicken Tikki Masala side was a little damp (not even soggy), but that’s to be expected when it’s piled a mile high with chicken and a yummy curry sauce.
The last thing I tried was the hard Ace Pumpkin Cider that Eat Drink Wild has on draft. I loved the comfortable vintage country café look and openly admired it.
I was pleased and excited to learn that local artist Dustin Hoots built the tables, bar, and benches. To me, it was just another fine example of how Eat Drink Wild wasn’t just another restaurant franchising into Vegas, but instead they are a healthy, gluten free mecca that supports local and wants to be a part of their new community, and they’re doing a great job of it.
One of the coolest parts of their decor is the Wild Wall, an idea from owner Mike, where anyone can post quotes. The atmosphere is mellow and relaxed and the staff were all very friendly, and treated us and other diners like family.
They were pleasant, caring and interested in their guests, and they made my husband and I feel comfortable about having our toddler with us. What I originally thought would be a quick interview and dinner turned into almost two hours of savoring fantastic food and getting to know the great staff that is sure to make Eat Drink Wild a huge success.
Jenifer mentioned that a lot of the residents of The Ogden frequent Eat Drink Wild for dinner. The salad bar will offer diners a chance to grab their lunch to go, a healthy option I’m sure employees and visitors in the downtown area will appreciate.

The meal wasn't cheap, but good food rarely is. Reviewed November 22, 2021 Took a day trip to Niagara Falls and looked up local places that were good for families and found Zappa's.
My daughter is still raving about the sweet potato fries and their magical chipotle sauce! The food is good and reasonable, and it's a local run business, with all the warmth that applies.

Reviewed October 10, 2021 via mobile We were staying this weekend in Niagara Falls and decided to press the easy button and order pizza for dinner; we chose Zappa’s based on the reviews and the fact that they delivered. We ordered 1 large specialty pizza (the vegetarian), and one order of...penne pasta with 4 meatballs... no drinks, no sides, nothing else. With delivery and tax, (we are 7 minutes away according to google maps) the total was $64 . That’s relatively expensive for even a high-end restaurant. Let alone a restaurant that would struggle to compete with domino’s or pizza most nights.
I asked for some Parmesan cheese on the side; I figured this was a reasonable request, considering we ordered a pasta dish. What I received was insulting. The meatballs are priced at $2.83 each, my assumption would be that these would be of the large homemade variety. Well, Walmart would be embarrassed to sell this meatball in its store . They have the quality of a high-end frozen meatballs, (Also see the picture below for size reference, keep in mind they are nearly $3 each) ridiculous. Pizza . Meh, taste . Not great, not terrible. Except it arrived at room temperature. Like I have already mentioned we were only 7 minutes away, there is no excuse for me having to microwave the pizza immediately after receiving it.
