Almost everyone can name at least one celebrity chef. Maybe you know their name from a cooking show, like Iron Chef America, or a cookbook, or just their stand-alone reputation for excellence in the culinary industry. There’s no better place to experience their mastery than one of the celebrity chef restaurants in Las Vegas.
We’ve rounded up our favorite and best celebrity chef restaurants in the city.
Gordon Ramsay is known as one of the world’s most notorious celebrity chefs. His reality-based television shows have made Gordon Ramsay a household name. Still, Chef Ramsay isn’t your ordinary celebrity chef. To date, he holds seven Michelin stars, which is a huge deal in the culinary world whether you’re a celebrity chef or not.
Chef Ramsay has several well-known restaurants in Las Vegas, including his infamous Hell’s Kitchen. When in Vegas, here’s where you can experience the MasterChef’s work for yourself.
If you’re a fan of Chef Ramsay or just enjoy watching his fiery personality and over-the-top reactions, you’re probably familiar with Hell’s Kitchen. Although they share a name, the actual show is recorded elsewhere, but guests of Hell’s Kitchen will notice it all feels a bit familiar.
Hell’s Kitchen has a prime location in Caesars Palace on the Strip, with decor and design that brings to mind the show. The floor-to-ceiling windows and modern elements create an upbeat yet elegant ambiance.
On the menu, you’ll find some of Chef Ramsay’s classic dishes, including Beef Wellington, Braised Short Rib, and Sticky Toffee Pudding. There is also a Spring Prix Fixe and Signature Prix Fixe menu, both with wine pairings available.
Hell’s Kitchen is open 11 am – 10:30 pm daily.
Steak is Gordon Ramsay’s fine dining, contemporary steakhouse in the Paris Las Vegas. Steak is a beautiful, warm space with a two-story dining area with an upper area that offers an exquisite dining experience. The large bar & lounge area is also the perfect spot for lingering and enjoying the company.
When enjoying an indulgent meal at Steak, don’t miss the Iced Shellfish Platter with oysters, clams, lobster, king crab, prawns, and a selection of seasonal shellfish. For your entree, the rack of lamb or seared Japanese A5 Kobe is a must.
Join Steak for French-inspired cuisine nightly from 4:30 pm – 10:30 pm.
Chef Ramsay has several other locations throughout Vegas and on the Las Vegas Strip. Lucky Cat, an elegant, Asian-themed restaurant, is one of his newest. Lucky Cat offers terrace seating with an a la carte menu or two beautiful chef’s tables with preselected menus. The bar at Lucky Cat is like no other, with a throwback to the culture and social scene of 1930’s Tokyo.
