Chef Rick Moonen closed both of his restaurants at Mandalay Place. Instead, he announced plans to open a new off-Strip restaurant, Moonen says in a press statement. RM Seafood and his steam-punk themed Rx Boiler Room both closed today. Moonen opened RM Seafood 14 years ago on Valentine’s Day, while Rx Boiler scooped out the upstairs of RM Seafood in 2013 as more of a lab for Moonen to play with food and drink.

“Now is the time for me to embed myself deeper into the community that has embraced and supported me for 15 years,” Moonen says in a press statement. “Owning and operating not one, but two restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip has been such an incredible journey.”

Moonen brought his seafood from New York City to Las Vegas and became a proponent of sustainability. “I am so excited to introduce my new dishes and concept to the locals who have supported me for so many years,” Moonen says in a press statement. “Stay tuned; it’s going to be innovative, ingredient driven, and just plain soigné!” Moonen did not provide a location or time frame for his new restaurant. He has been consulting for Perry’s Restaurants in Houston.
