Bradley Ogden's triumphant return to Las Vegas was cut short when his restaurant at Tivoli Village closed abruptly on Saturday night. While still technically a rumor, multiple reports are coming in that Hops & Harvest shuttered after service Saturday night and seven months in business.
One tipster says the kitchen went on strike Friday, while Robin Leach tweeted Saturday night that the restaurant was closing so Ogden could concentrate on his new restaurants in Houston.
The restaurant's Facebook page is gone and calls to the restaurant went directly to voicemail. Ogden did not respond to an email inquiry about the closure.
The news comes on the heels of the opening of his new Funky Chicken fast-casual concept in Houston, which he hopes to expand to 200 nationwide. Ogden has two other restaurants planned there as well, including Ogden's Pour Society, which originally was supposed to be another Hops & Harvest.
Ogden's eponymous restaurant at Caesars Palace closed after a 10-year run last year in August and now houses Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill.
