Those who need a reason to visit the region around Blue Diamond can stop by Cottonwood Station Eatery, which plans to debut a casual destination by the end of the month, perfect for a day trip from the Strip and beyond.
The neighborhood’s second dining option has been building the 1,980-square-foot restaurant with bar, plus 1,055-square-foot outdoor patio, since the owners broke ground last October.
Created by Steven Enger and Jody Lyman, residents of Blue Diamond and neighbors to their fellow populace of less than 300, the eatery is designed as a focal point for the local community and a travel destination for “eco-tourists.” The area is well known for attracting a large number bicyclists and hikers.
Aiming for a mid-March arrival, opening hours will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
On the menu, “coffee, fresh baked pastries, artisan pizzas, panini, salads, beer, wine, and cider.” A large pizza oven was delivered in January.
Featuring reclaimed wood walls created from the original blue garages that previously stood on this corner of Cottonwood Drive and Village Boulevard, the restaurant is located 18 miles from the Strip.
