One of the most promised, delayed and anticipated restaurants in recent years is moving closer to a declared December debut and Mr Chow is now hiring staff for multiple positions.
Plywood around the elevator entrance to the second-story, former Empress Court space at Caesars Palace features British artist George Blake's portrait of restaurateur Michael Chow. The original hangs in the London incarnation of Mr Chow, a Knightsbridge institution since 1968. Blake is most famous for co-creating the artwork for The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
The Mr Chow portrait can also be found on the company's new "private reserve" wine collection, launched this summer and available at the Beverly Hills location. For Las Vegas, expect an emphasis on mixologist creations and "an array of champagne selections presented in new ways, in addition to the famed champagne trolley." Signature dishes will include "chicken satay, green prawns and hand-pulled Mr Chow noodles," plus the restaurant's famed Peking duck.
When the project was first announced back in 2014, plans called for an estimated $1,697,918 construction makeover of the 11,583-square-foot space overlooking the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis. The 2015 incarnation will be overseen by Michael Chow himself, who has created the interiors for his six other namesake restaurants.
