Caesar Palace presents Gordon Ramsay HELL'S KITCHEN

They had a soft opening earlier this month and a huge, pyrotechnical blowout to make it' official. The first ever HELL'S KITCHEN  is now serving lunch and dinner at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The highly-anticipated eatery got almost y 25,000 reservations since opening.  Which mean you better call for your table well in advance.

Gordon Ramsay HELL'S KITCHEN looks right out of  the studio set of the globally popular FOX television show with its  signature fiery pitchfork at the entryway and  life-size video screen of Chef Ramsay that greets guests upon arrival, to the chef uniforms and menu items. "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. "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 boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that face the Strip and the hotels iconic fountains.  Other engaging  design features is of course the  centerpiece kitchen framed  with mosaic tiles.  Chefs and cooks wear identical  uniforms from the show – red and blue jackets with coordinating bandanas. To further bring the electric atmosphere of the studio into the dining room, additional key elements of the show are infused in the design, such as fire and heat and custom designed lighting that combine brass rods with pitchfork features and runs across the high ceilings. HELL'S KITCHEN's iconic "H" and pitchfork symbols are cleverly featured throughout the custom-designed, laser-cut screen partitions and soft charcoal and ash-hued wallcovering. 

"Creating unique and world class-dining experiences is one-way Caesars Entertainment is strengthening the integrated resort concept," said Mark Frissora President and CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "A key element of this is building strong partnerships and Gordon is not only a great partner but also one of the biggest talents in culinary."
Several of the most successful signature menu items and recipes featured on the television show can now be experienced during lunch and dinner including Pan Seared Scallops, Lobster Risotto, Beef Wellington, Truffle Arancini, Brick Pressed Chicken and Crispy Skin Salmon. Special menu items direct from the show will be added as new episodes air.
No Vegas restaurant is complete without a bar and HELL'S KITCHEN  has one big, sprawling fixture where you can sip signature creations such as  the gin-based Notes from Gordon, garnished with a scroll printed with a surprise note from Gordon Ramsay; the citrus and rosemary laden Chef's Stew, served bubbling and steaming from dry ice; and the rye-based Smoke on the Blvd, which arrives in a cherry-wood smoke-filled glass cabinet. There is also a well curated wine list with over 20 wines offered by the glass. The beer list is also notable with more than 30 options, and includes an exclusive HELL'S KITCHEN Special Brew IPA from Stone Brewing.
"With Gordon and his team, we created a unique dining experience based on one of the most popular shows on television. I'm very proud of what we have achieved. The room has been transformed and feels just like the set of Hell's Kitchen, and the food and service is worthy of the Gordon Ramsay," said Gary Selesner Regional President Caesars Palace. "The response from guests so far has been very gratifying. They are delighted with the menu and love the concept.  It looks like we have another big hit on our hands. I can't wait for everyone to try it."
