The press release is out, and it’s official — Scotsman Gordon Ramsay opens his much ballyhooed Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas on Friday, May 11.
Also official: Ramsay will participate in Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit’s Grand Tasting at the Garden of the Gods at Caesars Palace May 11. The shouty chef plans to serve up small bites of roasted beef Wellington served with potato puree and butter-glazed root vegetables, pan-seared Haddock with Irish potato broth and sticky toffee pudding as gossip columnist Norm Clarke reported earlier.
Also, new details on the menu just came out. Executive chef Kevin Hee, who trained under Ramsay, plans to cook up Ramsay’s interpretation of traditional American steakhouse dishes. Starters include dishes from sea or from land. Butter-poached Maine lobster, fried oysters and smoked beef tartare with Guinness-infused mustard seeds are just some of the choices.
On the entree side of the menu, look for Wagyu beef, dry-aged steaks, veal, Kurobuta double pork chop and seafood, natch.
Ramsay plans to include some of the dishes that made his London restaurants famous. Expect to find fish and chips from The Narrow and pork belly with candied kumquat and braised Swiss chard from Bread Street Kitchen.
The lounge area will have its own menu with smaller versions of the main dining room dishes and a classic cocktail list. More than 325 wine labels are housed in one of four wine cellars in the restaurant. Even the beer list contains something special. Innis & Gunn Original Oak Aged Beer, the English-inspired Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA and John Smith’s Ale from North Yorkshire, England, are among the 35 beers on the list.
The 7,500-square-foot space contains a two-story dining room with a private chef’s table and private dining rooms upstairs, where the most coveted seats will be located. Guests walk in through a Chunnel that transports them from Paris to Great Britain with a Union Jack on the ceiling above.
