The construction curtain has fallen away, so we’ve got a first look at the new Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, set to open Dec. 18, 2012.
The new restaurant at Caesars makes three dining options in Las Vegas for the colorful chef Ramsay. Gordon Ramsay BurGR opens Dec. 22, 2012 at Planet Hollywood, and Gordon Ramsay Steak opened at Paris Las Vegas in May.
There will be a quiz.
The virtually simultaneous opening of two restaurants from one celebrity chef is something that’s never been done in Las Vegas, and we’d be even more impressed if it weren’t, you know, Las Vegas.
Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill is set to have a neighborhood, English pub feel. The new offering will open for dinner on Dec. 18, with lunch service beginning in mid-January 2013.
Chef Ramsay has pulled in some top-notch talent at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, including Chef Jeremy Berlin who’s been named Executive Chef. Formerly, Berlin served as Executive Chef of the popular Church and State Bistro in L.A., and has also served as Executive Sous Chef at Ramsay’s London West Hollywood restaurant, as well as sous chef at Gordon Ramsay’s London NYC eatery.
Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will be two unique venues in one. The “Grill” section will feature dishes like New Zealand Red Snapper, lamb T-bone, whole brick-pressed Cornish chicken, dry aged, 30-ounce bone-in beef rib eye and spotted dog. (Don’t freak out. It’s pudding.)
The “Pub” area will boast what’s described as “elevated British pub food” and will show sporting events from around the world, as well as serving up a vast selection of beer (36 on tap, 24 bottled).
Among the many decorative touches is a massive wall of beer kegs, pictured below.
Our favorite TV Brit is certainly making his mark on Las Vegas, and we can’t wait to sample the “Hell’s Kitchen” star’s latest Sin City endeavors.
Bio: The Pulse of Vegas blog includes references to “we” often. But it’s actually written by one (incredibly modest) individual, Scott Roeben, a humorist, photographer, author and longtime Las Vegas resident. “We should probably interview ourselves sometime. We find us fascinating,” he says.
The Pulse of Vegas blog is the official Las Vegas blog of Caesars Entertainment, the folks who run a bevy of Las Vegas hotels. It received the inaugural “Most Valuable Las Vegas Blogger” award by CBS Local/KXNT News Radio.
