Rumors of Bradley Ogden’s closure at Caesars Palace surfaced last August when the foodies speculated just where Gordon Ramsay would open his restaurant in Vegas. John Curtas reported October would mark the end of the Bradley Ogden, the only Las Vegas restaurant ever to win a James Beard national Best New Restaurant of the Year Award (2004). Then the closing date moved to Jan. 1.
Now with the announcement last week that Ramsay would take over the Les Artistes Steakhouse space at Paris Las Vegas comes word that Bradley Ogden will remain open, at least through 2012. Las Vegas Weekly food writer Brock Radke reports on his blog:
“We all know that in the restaurant biz, there's no telling what will happen next, but the fact is this restaurant — one of my favorites on the Strip — is not scheduled to close. The space in the resort is leased to the restaurant and its operators through 2012.”That means one of the pioneers of the food-to-table movement in Vegas will continue to serve baked Maytag blue cheese souffle, roasted Duroc pork loin, seared scallops with roasted celery root and one of the best burgers on the Strip.
