Criss Angel’s rural Nevada restaurant temporarily shuttered

Updated August 12, 2021 - 8:58 pm

Criss Angel’s new restaurant is, it appears, a victim of its own success.

While Angel was not available for comment Wednesday evening, he addressed the closure of CABLP, his Overton restaurant that opened July 23, in a Facebook posting on July 29.

“We are grateful for the overwhelming support and food love,” Angel wrote. “In order to fulfill our promise of delicious food and excellence in customer service we need to expand our operation immediately in order to meet the unbelievable demand. We will reopen in August once we add additional refrigeration, freezers, more staffing, POS system and storage. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to better serve you.” (POS system refers to point-of-sales, or the checkout process.)

The exact reopening date has not been announced. CABLP (which stands for Criss Angel’s Breakfast, Lunch & Pizza) is at 309 S. Moapa Valley Blvd. in Overton, a rural area in northeast Clark County.
