It’s officially too late to dine at Stripside Cafe & Bar, the restaurant that temporarily took over the former Serendipity 3 space at the front of Caesars Palace. The restaurant closed to make way for Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen, which plans to open this winter.
The shutter was expected this month after permits were recently filed for the initial demolition phase of the makeover. That creates a blank canvas for the 11,307-square-foot space, almost doubling the size of the existing restaurant. Caesars Palace allocated an estimated $250,000 in construction costs to erase all trace of the former tenants.
Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen plans to seat almost 300 guests inside and on the patio that sits along the Strip. Cast and chefs from Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen show will bring their recipes and dishes that appeared on the show, while many of Ramsay’s signature dishes make the menu as well. Customers can expect a red and blue side to the restaurant that plans to serve brunch, dinner and a bar menu.
Visitors exit through an adjoining retail area, where they can "memorialize their experience by purchasing pictures, aprons, cookbooks, cutting boards and other fun, approachable and high quality items."
Already plans are in place to film parts of future episodes and host cooking competitions on site.
Ramsay first opened Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas in 2012, followed by Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill and Gordon Ramsay Burger (which only recently changed its name from Gordon Ramsay BurGR) at Planet Hollywood Resort seven months later. Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips debuted at The Linq Promenade last fall.
