Via Focaccia is a new fast-casual restaurant with an artisan touch at the Ellis Island casino a block east of the Strip. Much of the food, including sandwiches made with house-baked focaccia bread, is inspired by the Sicilian heritage of chef Ismaele Romano, an award-winning pizzaiolo who previously worked at kitchens inside the Wynn and Bellagio. The Americano features turkey and bacon smoked on property at The Front Yard. The Cotto & Fontina is like an elevated toasted ham-and-cheese sandwich with bechamel sauce. Add on rosemary and parm potato wedges or the Arancicni Siciliani, a fried pasta ball with slow-simmered ragu sauce. The menu also includes pastries, charcuterie, coffee, in-house canned cocktails, and of course, Ellis Island's own craft beer.
How to order: Order in person. Sandwiches are made fresh to order.
