Multi-Michelin star chef Gordon Ramsay recently celebrated the official grand opening of the first-ever Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN restaurant at Caesars Palace. Since its soft opening in January, the restaurant has already received reservations for nearly 25,000 guests.
If you’re wondering, yes, the restaurant will make you feel like you just stepped on set of the popular FOX television show. Everything from the signature fiery pitchfork that marks the entryway to the life-size video screen of Chef Ramsay that greets guests, to the chef uniforms and menu items are there for the pleasing. It’s everything you always imagined it would be.
"We responded to fans of the show who were hungry for a real-world HELL'S KITCHEN restaurant for some time – pun intended," said Ramsay in a statement. "What we didn't fully realize was just how enthusiastic the response would be. We are thrilled with the reservations and interest since announcing our opening, and excited to welcome guests to experience the best of HELL'S KITCHEN – great food, and great cocktails."
Designed by Jeffrey Beers International, the first-of-its-kind restaurant appeals to all of the senses and even offers a nod to both the red and blue teams featured on the show. The kitchen is the centerpiece with mosaic tiles framing the open space for every seat in the house to see. Chefs and cooks in the kitchen wear the exact same uniforms from the show - both red and blue. Other key elements from the hit cooking show include custom designed lighting that combines brass rods with pitchfork features and runs across the high ceilings. HELL’S KITCHEN’s “H” and pitchfork are featured through the custom-designed laser-cut screen partitions.
HELL’S KITCHEN menu includes some of the most successful signature items and recipes you’ve watched and wanted to taste from the show including Pan Seared Scallops, Lobster Risotto, Beef Wellington, Truffle Arancini, Brick Pressed Chicken and Crispy Skin Salmon. And the best part - special menu items direct from the show will be added to the menu as new episodes air.
This is Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant.
