Las Vegas' climb up the gastronomic charts will get a big boost with next month’s opening of Gordon Ramsay Steak, the acid-tongued English chef’s first Las Vegas restaurant. The 7,500-square-foot eatery will have a seasonal menu, seating for 200, private dining, a bar and a lounge. It’s slated to open May 11 inside Paris Las Vegas.
“The space is bold and innovative, and we’ve put together a strong team who together created a contemporary and fresh menu,” Ramsay said in a statement.
The opening coincides with Bon Appetit magazine’s Vegas Uncork’d, an upscale food and wine festival that runs from May 10 to 13. Ramsay will serve small bite samples from his new restaurant such as roasted beef Wellington with potato puree and butter-glazed root vegetables; pan-seared haddock with Irish potato broth; and sticky toffee pudding.
Back for its sixth year, Vegas Uncork’d features celebrity chefs, master sommeliers and noted mixologists in the nation showcasing their talents. Dozens of activities are scheduled, including a paella lunch with tapas pioneer Jose Andres and multicourse dinners from master French chefs Guy Savoy and Michel Richard.
