The Cornish Pasty Opens for Business Today!

We’re super thrilled to share that as of today Boulder City’s newest restaurant is opening, The Cornish Pasty at 1300 Arizona Street! Back in July is when we broke the news for you HERE that this fun and unique dining option would be coming to town, taking over the long vacant building in the heart of the Historic District. And now, that is finally a reality!

First, let’s introduce you to the gents above, left to right you’ve got: Richard Blankley, Co-Owner, Dean Thomas, Creator-Owner, and Scott Brunstetter and John Bender who are the Owner-Operators.

Over the prior months, we’ve been chatting with Richard Blankley and he explained their concept a bit to us. Each location (of which there are now 8) is manned from people they have hired and groomed from within. When employees prove themselves by working their way through the management roles, then they can become Owner Operators (such as Scott and John above) and be set up as their own store. So, the company really does believe in taking that entry level worker bussing tables and washing dishes, and if they have the drive and desire, working with them to advance all the way to ownership. Which is pretty nice to see!

Last night we attended their soft ‘friends and family’ opening, and the place was packed! Great food and drinks on hand and of course lots of pasty delicious-ness! You can see their menu online, but do note, that as this location gets it’s legs the menu will be somewhat smaller as they take in what Boulder City seems to like. They’ve also got wings, salads and plenty of options for both meat eaters and vegetarians.

Richard also tells us that they have an amazing espresso and coffee machine, and they will be offering breakfast pasties as well! Hours currently will be 7am – 11am for breakfast. Then 11am – 10pm for lunch and dinner, open seven days a week. (Times may adjust.)

The interior is much warmer than it was before, with wood floors, and swanky wall-paper and chandeliers and the whole place has this cool alternative, funky vibe to it. Don’t for a minute think this is formal – it’s casual dining meant to let folks hang loose and enjoy themselves. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available, of course.

The staff is fun, professional, and lively and the food tasty. Remember that of course they’re gonna’ need some time to get their groove on and work thru the kinks, but give these folks a hello when you’re downtown and plan a meal here sometime soon to welcome them to town – Congrats to all of them!
