Tilted Kilt Returns to its Roots in Vegas
In 2003, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery made its debut by opening its first restaurant in Las Vegas. Now, the concept is returning home with its hottest location inside Las Vegas' newest entertainment district, The LINQ owned by Caesars Entertainment.
The 9,000-square-foot restaurant is located in the LINQ's Central Plaza and creating 200 new jobs.
"We couldn't be any more excited about returning to the city where Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery got started," says Tilted Kilt President Ron Lynch. "As our brand continues to flourish, it was a great opportunity to bring our fun, casual-dining concept back to the Strip and to Las Vegas' newest open-air retail, dining, and entertainment district. Sin city is where we established our roots, and our presence there helped Tilted Kilt gain national and global exposure."
The first Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery was opened in the Las Vegas Rio Hotel and Casino in 2003 and was the brainchild of concept founder Mark DiMartino and co-founders Shannon Reilly and John Reynaud. To help open the concept's newest restaurant at The LINQ, DiMartino has partnered with Anthony and Tamara Laureti, Bill Reynolds, and Jason Wood, who are the owners of three Southern California Tilted Kilt locations in downtown San Diego, Westfield Mission Valley Mall, and the Promenade at Temecula.
"It is an honor to have the opportunity to partner with Mark DiMartino for the new pub," Reynolds says. "As the founder of the Tilted Kilt brand and the developer of numerous restaurant concepts in the Las Vegas market, we look forward to leveraging his knowledge to help our new pub prosper."
