This fall, there’s no better place in Summerlin to take taste buds on a culinary adventure than JING.

Since opening at Downtown Summerlin in January 2020, JING has become one of Southern Nevada’s most buzzed-about restaurants — and for good reason. Although best known for its see-and-be-seen dinner scene, which has attracted such celebrities as boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and comedian Pauly Shore to its tables, the 10,000-square-foot restaurant is far from all flash and no substance, thanks to a talented executive chef who has learned from some of the best chefs in the business, including Thomas Keller, Andre Rochat, and Michael Mina.

“JING’s success since our inception is largely due to our dedication to delivering an upscale, approachable experience by coupling sexy vibe-dining seven days per week with exceptional recipes and the finest ingredients. All this, in the suburbs of Las Vegas, allows us to bring refined culinary dining, which typically could only be found in the Las Vegas Strip corridor.”  - JING Executive Chef Thomas Griese.

Renowned for its global fusion cuisine, JING’s delectable dinner menu showcases some of the world’s greatest flavors alongside fresh ingredients from locally sourced and organic farms. Diners can start their meal with such flavorful dishes as the spicy garlic Edamame or the melt-in-your-mouth pork belly Bao Sliders before feasting upon an array of sumptuous sushi or a succulent USDA Prime Black Angus steak from Kansas’ Creekstone Farms. The 14-ounce Center Cut New York Striploin, in particular, comes highly recommended by Griese. A selection of premium seafood and classic wok favorites are available, too, as well as a variety of noodle- and rice-based dishes, like JING’s signature Lobster Garlic Noodles made with wok-roasted lobster tail. Whatever items guests decide on, no visit to JING is complete without ordering Griese’s famous Brussels Sprouts for the table, topped in bonito, almonds, and a honey Szechuan glaze, and ending the evening with the light and refreshing Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.

Diners can savor their meal inside JING’s ultra-chic dining room, which features impressive fire and water features to create the ideal “Chi” for guests, or out on its 52-seat patio while watching shoppers pass by. JING’s patio even has misters to keep guests cool, making it the perfect alfresco dining spot not only for dinner but also for JING’s popular Sunday Party Brunch. In addition to featuring many of JING’s delicious dinner items, the Sunday brunch menu has several morning favorites, including Vanilla French Toast with crème fraîche and berries and the ultimate brunch staple: Avocado Toast with poached eggs and smoked bacon. Diners can also enjoy live entertainment during Sunday brunch, as well as a DJ every night starting at 8:30 p.m.

As if JING’s mouthwatering menu and vibrant, non-pretentious atmosphere weren’t enough to keep guests coming back for more, the restaurant also hosts several curated nights throughout the week. For those looking to plan a ladies’ night, women drink complimentary “bubbles” with all-girl table reservations on Wednesdays starting at 8:00 p.m. JING is open every day of the week; reservations are highly recommended on the weekend.
