The renovations are complete, the menu is finalized and the pizzas are flying – make that levitating – out the door as Criss Angel’s Cablp is now open for business in Overton, 45 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
“This has been an incredible experience creating Cablp with my partners and entire team,” said Angel. “Building a restaurant is a lot like building a show – you grind over every detail and in the end, you hope you’ve created something that will blow away the expectations of every guest that walks in the door.”
The former Sugars Home Plate restaurant has been transformed into Angel’s vison – Cablp, Criss Angel’s Breakfast, Lunch & Pizza. Featuring a sit-down option, walkup window and to-go service from your car with the highest quality foods, desserts and spirits. Angel and his executive chef, Amy Coram Reynolds, and his partners, pizzamaker Mike Baram and brother Costa Sarantakos, have created a menu featuring fresh ingredients with a something-for-everyone approach.
“Before we were a magic family, we were a restaurant family,” said Angel. “My dad owned restaurants in New York for years. This in many ways is celebrating his memory and our lives during that time.”
The genesis for Cablp was inspired by family dirt bike outings in the desert around the Moapa Valley.
“My family and I fell in love with the area when we took our son, Johnny Crisstopher, dirt biking nearby,” said Angel. “The more time we spent there, the more we got to know the town and the amazing people. When the opportunity came to invest in the community with this restaurant, we jumped at it.”
Cablp brings more than just Angel’s reputation for flair and daring, but his philanthropic spirit as well. Cablp offers a “Free Meal Outreach” program benefiting underprivileged and pediatric cancer families. Cablp is also a part of the “Earn & Learn” youth job program.
Criss and partner Shaunyl Sarantakos’ son, seven-year-old Johnny Crisstopher, has been battling Leukemia for more than five years. The Johnny Crisstopher Children’s Charitable Foundation, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization established in 2008, has donated over 50,000 meals to the community during the Covid-19 pandemic in addition to millions of dollars throughout the years to Cure 4 the Kids of Nevada, Make-A-Wish of Southern Nevada and St. Baldricks Foundation of Northern Nevada.
“The outside of Cablp (an acronym name which stands for Criss Angel’s breakfast, lunch and pizza) has already done more to beautify, enliven and revitalize Overton’s commercial district than anything else in a generation; and maybe ever.” – The Progress
Cablp is also the first step in a master vision Criss has for the area.
“I’m so excited to open the first piece of what will be a much larger experience benefiting the community — Criss Angel’s Escape Camp Adventures — which will be located on acres of land I purchased this year,” said Angel. “Situated at the start of Logandale trails which has become a tourist destination for riding enthusiasts throughout the country, Criss Angel’s Escape Camp will give families going through the most challenging times a beautiful escape to camp, ride and eat for free.”
Cablp is located at 309 S Moapa Valley Blvd., Overton, NV 89156. Please call 702-397-8084 for A GOOD TIME!
