Tom's Urban brings the modern diner to Las Vegas

Breakfast, dinner and lunch are covered at Tom's Urban that recently opened in New York-New York

Los Angeles already has its own Tom’s Urban at LA Live, and now the modern interpretation of the diner comes to Las Vegas.

The (nearly) 24-hour version at New York-New York hotel-casino spills out onto the front walkway of the resort that boasts a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Unlike the L.A. site, Vegas unveils breakfast starting at 6 a.m., a must in a city that’s operating around the clock. Try the Hangover Slopper, a burger with pork green chile and queso fresco with two fried eggs, or the Killer Chilaquiles with two eggs any way served over a tomatillo salsa.

You can order these dishes late at night, too; the restaurant stays open until the last cocktail is sipped.

For Vegas, Tom's Urban cooked up a Sin City Burger, similar to the one found at co-owner Tom Ryan’s sister restaurant Smashburger. St. Louis ribs, crispy duck wings in a hoison glaze, filet mignon sliders and the restaurant’s interpretation of street tacos make up the menu.

Three bars scattered around the 12,000-square-foot space serve 35 craft beers and drinks appropriate for walking the Strip.

Yes, there is a WTF with Jim Beam, red wine and Brooklyn Beer, and a bacon bourbon mary with a schmear of cream cheese. Order any cocktail in sizes from 16 ounces to an oversized 33 ounces.
