HENDERSON, Nev. – As the Galleria at Sunset’s second phase of expansion nears completion, two new restaurants are putting up the finishing touches in preparation of their scheduled late-May grand openings. Bravo! Cucina Italiana and Larsen’s Grill are now both accepting applications for various positions.

Available jobs differ between restaurants, but they include servers, hosts and hostesses, dishwashers, cooks, bartenders, server assistants and others. Bravo! is accepting applications online at, or in-person Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Residence Inn at 2190 Olympic Ave.

Larsen’s will host a job fair on Saturday, April 18, at its new location at the Galleria at Sunset, 1300 W. Sunset Road. Applications will be available on site and resumes are encouraged. Interviews will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The addition of these two new restaurants is great news for our local economy and jobseekers,” said Heather FitzGerald, the Galleria at Sunset’s marketing director. “Both companies see great potential for growth in Henderson and Southern Nevada, and we’re honored they saw the value of setting their roots at the Galleria at Sunset.”

And they’re not the only ones. The addition of Bravo! and Larsen’s is part of a broader $24.1 million, 30,000-square-foot expansion.
