When You Want a Wellington

Gordon Ramsay seems to be omnipresent in Las Vegas. He’s opened five mid-Strip restaurants within walking distance of each other, giving superfans of the outspoken Hell’s Kitchen host a rationale for devoting entire Vegas visits to experiencing his takes on British cuisine and dining atmosphere.

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace between The Forum Shops and Colosseum offers a convivial environment in which to have traditional shepherd’s pie or Ramsay’s unforgettable beef Wellington. The delectable fillets of steak wrapped in ham and pastry can be enjoyed in a socially friendly casino-adjacent seating area, dining rooms or bars, where tenders dispense expert advice from behind gleaming taps.

Even more kinetic is the large dining room of Hell’s Kitchen. The freestanding Strip-side restaurant in front of Caesars Palace is where Ramsay’s force of personality fully represents. The Wellington is part of Hell’s Kitchen’s signature prix fixe menus, but entrées of roasted rack of lamb, braised short rib and Jidori chicken scallopini may be too alluring to pass up.

Don’t leave before trying sticky toffee pudding, but if you forget, Gordon Ramsay’s Fish & Chips, across the street at The Linq Promenade, offers the bittersweet dessert in frozen pop form. Mouthwatering fillets of cod can be ordered by the piece or with chips, with diners on the patio indicating the level of deliciousness to passers-by with superlatively satisfied expressions.

Ramsay puts the fish in a bun at Gordon Ramsay Burger inside Planet Hollywood Resort, where customers select from nearly a dozen variations on gourmet beef patties.

Its atmosphere is casual, while Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas contains the superstar chef’s most sumptuous dining concept in Vegas: An Instagram-worthy “Chunnel” entrance leads to a lounge and grand dining room with a glowing red neon sculpture suspended from the ceiling. A second level offers tables with a closer look and booths that provide intimacy, while the menu offers superbly prepared British dishes of steaks, chops, fish and short rib—and another opportunity to try that amazing sticky toffee pudding. –Matt Kelemen
