In the episode airing tonight at 8pm ET/PT, Todd Graves heads to eat., a downtown Las Vegas favorite for breakfast and lunch. After overcoming a battle with drug addiction, Chef Natalie Young opened the eclectic “eat.” in 2012 with the help of a loan she received as part of a city revitalization project. A fast favorite for locals and tourists, the restaurant was so successful that the entire loan was paid off in less than a year. Chef Natalie and eat. also play an important role to the at-risk youth she employs.
Graves helped Young by renovating her patio area and adding a dining area in the parking garage behind her restaurant to make up for lost seating due to COVID restrictions increasing her capacity from 40 to 86 seats. Graves also donated $10,000 to the Core Academy in Chef Natalie’s name to continue supporting this cause that is so important to her.
