Multi-Michelin-starred chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay has made his flavorful mark in Las Vegas with Caesars Entertainment for the sixth time. Ramsay’s Kitchen, a concept inspired by Chef Ramsay’s travels abroad, made its official debut at Harrah’s Las Vegas on Wednesday, Nov. 16.
During the grand opening celebration, Chef Ramsay greeted invited guests with a special video message as they enjoyed signature bites and cocktails. Chef Christina Wilson, season 10 winner of the FOX hit culinary competition “HELL’S KITCHEN” and Vice President of Culinary at Gordon Ramsay North America, joined Caesars Entertainment executives at Ramsay's Kitchen for a commemorative toast.
“Ramsay's Kitchen marks one of the biggest openings in Harrah’s history,” said Dan Walsh, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Harrah’s Las Vegas. “Not only are we excited to offer an incredible dining experience to our guests for lunch and dinner, but Ramsay’s Kitchen is also a great, convenient option for those attending meetings and events at CAESARS FORUM Conference Center.”
Starter dishes at Ramsay’s Kitchen include Tuna Tartare, made with chili garlic soy, sour cream, avocado and wonton crisps, and Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, served with citrus herb aioli and frisée salad. The restaurant also offers Chef Ramsay’s signature items, such as Pan Seared Scallops with house-cured pork belly, apricot purée, pomegranate, orange and chicken jus; Beef Wellington with potato purée, glazed baby root vegetables, red wine demi and Crispy Salmon with purple cauliflower purée, harissa roasted cauliflower and beurre blanc. Additionally, dishes exclusive to the Ramsay’s Kitchen at Harrah’s Las Vegas menu include Beef Carpaccio with horseradish panna cotta, cured egg yolk, artichoke chips and English mustard sauce; Onion Soup with oxtail brandade, Gruyère gratinée and baguette and Roasted Chicken Breast with herb butter, creamed corn polenta, seasonal mushroom fricassee and chicken jus.
“I can’t wait to introduce one of my newer restaurant concepts and the first of its kind on the West Coast to Harrah’s guests,” said Ramsay. “The menu features some of my favorite dishes I’ve created at home in my own kitchen, but with that special Vegas flair.”
Ramsay’s Kitchen offers a variety of beer, wine and specialty cocktails, including The Spiced Pear, with Absolut pear vodka, pear liqueur, cinnamon-cardamom vanilla syrup and lemon, and the Boston’s Inferno, with Maker’s Mark whisky, Smoke Wagon small batch whiskey, dark maple syrup and angostura bitters. For a sweet treat, desserts range from the fan-favorite Sticky Toffee Pudding to the Eton Mess, which features baked meringue, cranberry jam, Chantilly cream, winter citrus and pistachio dust.
Designed by architecture and interior design firm AO, Ramsay’s Kitchen seats 244 guests immersed in an ambiance that reflects the celebrated chef’s personality with simple yet sophisticated décor. The dining establishment features an open and inviting bar that welcomes guests and sets the tone for the upscale feel of the restaurant. An attention-grabbing focal point is a collection of glass-blown copper-colored pendants that cascade from a reflective ceiling in the main dining area. A theater kitchen and seven-seat seafood counter and raw bar anchor the lower dining area, which features a floor-to-ceiling custom wine display highlighting the vast selection. The space features a three-dimensional art piece made of coasters that depict Chef Ramsay. A private dining room seats 12 and offers a glimpse of the action on the cook line.
