Chef Matt Meyer’s latest endeavor will surprise, excite and invigorate your love for eclectic cuisine…
The worst is over and Las Vegas is back. Tourists are flooding in and locals are venturing out to rejoin civilization. In the past few weeks, long-established restaurants have been operating at allowable capacity (and quite frequently, turning customers away). There’s never been a better time to discover new offerings, and one of the most exciting is SERVED GLOBAL DINING.
You might recall my visit to SERVED‘s original location, an intimate affair overseen by prolific Chef Matthew Meyer. Nestled in a small shopping center in the heart of Henderson, SERVED‘s kitchen doubled as a catering service, allowing the handsome chef to stretch his culinary wings while building an extremely loyal dine-in following.
Last month, Chef Meyer was able to expand to a nearby location at 1450 W. Horizon Parkway. The spacious (and carefully-spaced) spot has allowed SERVED to go “epic” with full bar service and a central Chef’s Table designed to feature guest presentations. There’s also a raw bar, gorgeously-appointed main dining room, private event facilities and even a space for live entertainment. Click here for their entertainment schedule.
At Served Global Dining, we are creating an experience that pushes the boundaries and offers you a truly unique global experience in our local neighborhood. We strive to expand your palate with the freshest ingredients and flavors, while surprising each guest with outstanding service.

Never settle and always strive to surpass expectations. – SERVED GLOBAL DINING
Atmosphere and service are always important when it comes to fine dining, and the attentive staff here will make you feel like part of the family. But food is the primary element, that’s where SERVED Global Dining excels. A broad (and growing) menu features classic entrees with Meyer’s signature twists, and a number of daring selections to intrigue the adventurous in your party.

Chef Meyer is known for his bold blending of colors, textures, and temperatures in unexpected ways. The result is a bevy of dishes that’ll capture your imagination as much as your palate. Even more conventional fare like Benedicts, burgers and salads receive a distinctive makeover that will have you craving more.
You must be willing to make mistakes and never settle for the status quo. Once you release all preconceived notions, only then can you start to truly go beyond what the imagination can realize. There are so many more combinations and ideas yet to be discovered, that’s what drives me every day. – Chef Matt Meyer
Imagine a Caesar Salad with Parmigiano Reggiano ($9.50) in which the romaine has been grilled to a smoky flavor. Or Short Rib Grilled Cheese with fermented mushrooms ($12.50). Perhaps a hand-made Miso Carbonara Pasta with Iberico pork belly ($27)? They’re all there, made to order and Instagram-ready to cause envy in your friends.
On my recent dinner visit, Chef Meyer suggested Beef Wellingon ($63), a six ounce British Baldy filet nestled inside a puffy crust. It’s served atop potato mash with a port wine reduction and accompanied by seared asparagus. “I’m pretty proud of it” Meyer told me.
The taste was exquisite, and the portion was large enough for two, especially when adding a generous side like Sautéed Mushrooms, Truffle Herb Steak Fries or Creamed Spinach (all $9). Other entrées on the latest dinner menu included Seafood Pasta in white wine lobster reduction ($35), Short Rib Stroganoff with wild mushrooms ($33), and a Vegan Curry with celery root and black rice ($20).
Meat lovers can dive into a 16 0z NY Strip with smashed potatoes and blistered tomato herb salad ($44), a very popular Pasture-raised Mushroom Chicken Breast with glazed carrots ($25), or Peruvian-style Lomo Saltado, a marinated sirloin filet with rice, plantains, steak fries and two sunny-side eggs ($25).
If seafood is your craving, try Apple Sage Scallops (($35) or Wild Salmon with scratch-made Panang Curry (($32). There’s Lobster Borscht ($22), Matt’s California Roll ($13), Oysters (3 varieties/6 total, Market Price) and more selections from the Raw Bar.
Breakfast and brunch have always been big draws at SERVED, and their new location has expanded hours to satisfy diners at every meal. Traditional Eggs Benedict has made way for some wild variations like Barbacoa Beef or Turkey ($16), Softshell Crab ($21), Manuka Honey Ham ($16) and King Crab ($28). Each comes with its own unique accompaniments and sauces.
If Bennies aren’t on your short list, there are plenty of other egg dishes: Hawaiian-inspired Green Eggs and SPAM with garlic fried rice ($13), Corned-beef Hash Tacos topped with quail egg ($12), Crispy Chicken and Waffles with orange compound butter and real maple syrup ($18), and a Filipino Breakfast plate with your choice of three proteins, plain or garlic fried rice and three eggs ($14).
Lunch choices are just as unique, with fresh, distinctive takes on burgers. But you won’t want to pass up a Rueben with house-made corned beef, Swiss and sauerkraut ($15), Prime Rib Dip ($15) and a Triple-Decker Turkey Club ($14). Dive into a shrimp or soft-shell crab Tempura Po-boy with yum-yum sauce ($16), savor the Pastrami-Style Pork Belly sandwich with house coleslaw ($16), or choose from Banh-Mi‘s featuring Portobello Mushrooms ($16) or Roasted Iberico Pork Belly ($20).
