Gordon Ramsay of Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen fame has opened 5 restaurants on the Las Vegas strip. While you might not hear him screaming from the kitchen, you will get a taste of what makes this chef one of the hottest commodities on the culinary scene. You'll get your fill of Gordon Ramsay in Las Vegas.
The high ceiling lends to the open feeling of the bustling main dining room. The show kitchen is the centerpiece of a restaurant concept pulled straight from the set of the widely popular Hell's Kitchen. The elaborate setup blends into a long bar alive with a Vegas vibe, and the adjacent dining rooms adorned with large windows frame the Las Vegas strip, while firmly planting your palate in the mind of Gordon Ramsay.
The 300-seat restaurant was already the hottest reservation in town on its opening weekend; nearly 25,000 confirmed reservations had already been made for the first 6 months of operation. Lunch and dinner guests will be delighted to be able to sample some of the television show’s favorites including crispy skin salmon and the lobster risotto. Gordon Ramsay staples such as the Beef Wellington and the pan seared scallops will delight Ramsay fans. The cocktail program is quite strong and is pulled together with “Notes From Gordon,” a gin concoction that comes complete with a personalized note from the chef himself.
Hell’s Kitchen is open daily for lunch and dinner in the Roman Plaza just outside the lobby.
If we had to choose one of Gordon Ramsay's Restaurants as a favorite, it would be his steak joint. Of course, we would order the fish and chips and have 3 cocktails to go along with those crispy critters. The room is full of energy and the bar area is a favorite on the Las Vegas strip for a meal. The beef is good, the drinks are fine, and the atmosphere is a party on the verge of breaking out. You'll need to call ahead and get a reservation if you plan on having a meal in the dining room. It is a hot ticket.
Everyone in my food circles is quite excited about the burger at Gordon Ramsay Burger. The burgers are good. The combination of chuck, brisket, and sirloin make for a good piece of beef, and when placed between those two buns, they are a dynamic combo. Pop a dawg inside that bun and now you are talking about some serious excitement when it comes to flavorful food. Split a burger and a dawg and you have a very good meal for a fairly low price.
Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace
The energy and atmosphere are very casual but the prices are a bit on the high side. Stick with the pub menu and you'll find plenty of opportunities to have an affordable meal to go along with your multiple pints. Lunch is easier to get in to find a table but dinner and late night are when the bar area is really a lot of fun.
Here you'll find fish and chips and shakes and fried chicken in a convenient fast food shop that helps you pack in another snack into your Las Vegas vacation.
