Industry trendsetter Clique Hospitality brings together a collection of highly sought-after imports and only-in-Las Vegas destinations with Proper Eats Food Hall, now open on the promenade level of ARIA Resort & Casino. Offerings include Judy Joo’s Seoul Bird out of London, Wexler’s Deli out of Los Angeles, Portland’s Shalom Y’all and New York’s Egghead – each opening for the first time outside of their native cities. Additionally, several of Proper Eats’ concepts were created by Clique, including the company’s new sushi concept, Temaki, along with Easy Donuts, Proper Bar and Laughing Buddha.

“We’ve curated a stellar lineup to wow foodies from around the globe. It’s the best of the best, plus exceptional cocktails to complement the cuisine,” said Andy Masi, founder of Clique Hospitality. “We are thrilled to debut Proper Eats Food Hall as part of ARIA’s incredible dining and nightlife offerings.”

Set to the stunning architectural design of renowned Italian designer Alessandro Munge of Toronto-based Studio Munge, the elevated food hall spans 24,000 square feet; with distinctive design and furnishings reflecting the personality of each concept. Welcoming guests into the space, a luminous curvilinear trellis canopy hangs above Proper Bar, accentuating the stylish setting that has quickly become a vibrant social hub within ARIA to meet for cocktails.

The full lineup of offerings, along with hours of operation, include:

Inspired by her grandfather, Lola Wharton honors him with a concept that serves crave-worthy burgers created from special family recipes. Lola’s Burgers are made with premium beef, served on freshly baked buns and include offerings such as the “Smash Burger,” a double patty with American cheese, grilled onions, pickles and Russian dressing; and the “backyard classic,” made with a 6 oz patty, American cheese, diced onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles and mustard.

Shalom Y’all is the flagship restaurant for Portland’s Sesame Collective, which was founded in 2020 and already has a collection of six dining concepts, building on the lauded cuisine of Kasey Mills.
  • Temaki: Inspired by the tradition of enjoying handrolls as they are prepared so the rice is warm and the fish is chilled, Temaki offers fresh sushi, made to order, highlighting sustainably caught seafood. Temaki is new to Clique’s Southern California portfolio, where it has quickly become a favorite in Encinitas, California.
