Already the hottest ticket in town, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace has created a mad rush for beef Wellington and shellfish towers. The superstar chef’s fifth local restaurant is themed after his Fox Network Hell’s Kitchen TV show, but the design of its long and spacious bar would feel at home inside any Las Vegas resort.
Facing an illuminated wall that stretches to the ceiling, filled with bottles on shelves and a couple of TVs, visitors can down a Guinness or Newcastle Brown Ale in tribute to Ramsay’s European roots, or choose from a selection of Merlot and Chardonnay wines and spins on traditional cocktails, plus more sparkling refreshments.
They can also be among the first to try the “Hell’s Kitchen Brew” created by California’s Stone Brewing, the makers of previous beers for Gordon Ramsay Burger and the Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill.
On the cocktail menu, the restaurant has added a couple of novel touches, with the Smoke on the Blvd including some “smoke” theatrics to its presentation and the gin-based “Notes from Gordon” featuring a Union Jack flag decorated, humorous note attached to the side of the drink.
