Taste all of Gordon Ramsay's fiery touches
Here’s the dirty secret about Gordon Ramsay—contrary to his television persona, he’s actually a really nice guy in person. The chef is a familiar face in Las Vegas after opening five restaurants on the Strip with Caesars Entertainment. Each one has its own identity, but much like Ramsay himself, each knows how to combine charm and personality with bold flavors.
Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen is inspired by the chef’s long-running reality show of the same name. The restaurant occupies its own stand-alone building in front of Caesars Palace and almost feels like a television studio with bright lights shining down on an open kitchen in the center of the dining room. It’s a busy place. Hell’s Kitchen serves about 400 of Ramsay’s signature beef Wellingtons each day, but you can’t go wrong with any of the sweetly marbled carrot-fed steaks on the menu. Other highlights include seared scallops, butter-poached lobster risotto and a spin on the chef’s famous sticky toffee pudding dessert with speculoos cookie butter added to the ice cream.
The famous Brit’s first Vegas venture, Gordon Ramsay Steak, blends fine dining with a stylish, contemporary edge. The entrance is modeled after the English Chunnel to represent a smooth transition from the Paris Las Vegas casino to the undeniable British swagger of the steakhouse. A vibrant Union Jack spreads across the ceiling, establishing royal dominance over a two-level dining room and a red neon centerpiece designed to honor Ramsay’s own intensity in the kitchen. Prime steaks from Creekstone Farms, dry-aged for at least 28 days in salt chambers, are wheeled between tables on a “meat trolley” to help guests choose the perfect cut.
By comparison, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill is far more casual. Located just steps away from the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, the restaurant’s menu is based on traditional British bar food like shepherd’s pie and scotch eggs. The signature fish and chips, prepared with fresh cod that’s never frozen, is served with a side of mushy peas—an authentic English favorite with mint and lemon zest. Even the nachos are given an Anglocentric twist with beer cheese, short rib and pickled sweet peppers. Wash it all down with one of 35 beers on draft.
Gordon Ramsay Burger at Planet Hollywood Resort serves 1,600 to 1,800 burgers a day, including the best-selling Hell’s Kitchen burger with roasted jalapeño and avocado. The 7-ounce patties—a custom blend of brisket, chuck and short rib—are grilled over an open flame of applewood, alder and mesquite. For something different, try the hog burger, made with prized Mangalitsa pork, or the vegan-friendly garlic- and herb-mushroom burger. The onion rings work as either an appetizer or side dish with a fried Newcastle batter offering a crunchy complement to the sweet Vidalia onions inside.
Need a quick bite? Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips at The Linq Promenade is a grab-and-go spot with a simple menu of fish, chicken, shrimp and lobster—all fried in a dairy- and egg-free batter. Dirty fries come in three messy choices and despite the calorie overload, you’ll have no trouble wolfing down a Biscoff cookie shake for dessert. A fried beef Wellington special shows up on holidays and other special occasions.
