Bobby Flay’s New Seafood Restaurant Sweeps in the Refreshing Vibe of the Amalfi Coast

Celebrity chef Bobby Flay opened his new Italian seafood restaurant at Caesars Palace in May, inspired by his trips to the Amalfi Coast. The restaurant, Amalfi by Bobby Flay, took over his 16-year-old Mesa Grill, spanning 9,000 square feet right off the casino floor.

The menu spans whole fresh fish and pastas to lighter antipasti. A fishmonger showcases his catches of the day in a dramatic seafood display near the open kitchen. The fishmonger, who is available to answer any questions, can share where the fish is from, when it arrived in Las Vegas, and other detailed requests. Diners can typically find golden snapper, red snapper, black bass, branzino, and Carabinero shrimp, which can be grilled over charcoal or roasted al forno and served with the choices of Meyer lemon and capers, red pepper and Calabrian chile pesto, or salsa verde.

Flay tapped Olivia Jane Design & Interiors to create the look of Amalfi with a natural palette and touches of greenery throughout. Organic fabrics, stone, and wood materials decorate the four spaces inside.

A 30-seat bar and 40-seat lounge area practically glow with a limestone mosaic floor and teak wood beams. Flay says he loves the golden glow in the bar and lounge. “Don’t miss the Amalfi Coast-inspired blue and white chairs in the lounge, which are a nod to the swarms of striped umbrellas and chairs sprawled across the beaches there,” he says.

The grille/main dining room features limestone walls and antique brass with views of the kitchen. Wines from various regions throughout the Amalfi Coast also find a home here.

The restaurant also features a private dining room.

Flay recommends ordering the charred octopus with burnt orange and pancetta as an appetizer, followed by squid ink fettuccine with lobster, shrimp, and fra diavolo sauce.
