Saturday night at Meatball Spot was the restaurant of choice among athletes as heavyweight hitter, Mike Tyson, UFC champ, Frank Mir, and BMX pro, TJ Lavin, all dined at Town Square Las Vegas.
After meeting with the Sugar Factory team to discuss a future partnership, Tyson and his wife, Kiki, enjoyed dinner at the new hot-spot. A fan of “Top Chef” Carla Pellegrino’s gluten-free menu options, Tyson indulged in vegetarian meatballs and gluten-free spaghetti with classic sauce. While filming for his new documentary, Tyson and his wife, Kiki, shared the Spinach and Fennel Salad. For dessert, the boxing legend ordered two scoops of the eatery’s refreshing coconut gelato.
While at the popular eatery, Tyson stopped to take photos with fans and babies. When he heard a family singing “Happy Birthday” to a young girl, Tyson walked over to their table, greeted the group and gave the girl a Sugar Factory Couture Pop.
Accompanied by a group of friends, MMA fighter, Mir, tried Pellegrino’s Caprese salad and an over-sized slice of pepperoni and sausage pizza.
Extreme sports athlete, Lavin, dined with his wife and friends, enjoying the House Salad, Meatball Sampler and classic ice cream sandwich for dessert.
