LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Restaurants across the country are turning to a new business concept to rebound from the pandemic.

Restaurants have been forced to cut capacity and in some cases completely shutdown their dining rooms.

To avoid high real estate costs, some restaurants are choosing to operate out of what's called a "ghost kitchen."

There's no sign outside and no dining room inside.

Just a busy kitchen preparing meals for delivery or pick up.

That's what restaurant owner Doug Katz did.

The idea is helping many owners and operators keep costs down.

But Doug admits he hopes to eventually get back to entertaining guests.
