Celebrity chef Robert Irvine has managed to keep details of his first Las Vegas restaurant under wraps for almost a year, but last night at the Tropicana he finally unveiled the name and the thinking behind the soon-to-arrive Robert Irvine's Public House.
While the public house angle will include a nod to his British roots and a pub-style atmosphere, the Food Network TV star explained that the name was chosen "not for the ale, but because I want to invite people to enjoy the entertainment, enjoy the food and it’s about people."
Working for a July debut, Irvine announced the "eclectic menu comes from my travels around the world" and includes his personal spins on "comfort food."
Located on the northern side of casino floor, including part of the former sports book, last year, Irvine told Eater Vegas he intends to be be actively involved with the restaurant, and make frequent return visits. "The success of the restaurant depends on me being here."
