Yesterday Gordon Ramsay brought his unique style and culinary flair to Las Vegas with the opening Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas, marking the award-winning chef’s first restaurant in Las Vegas. The two-level steakhouse welcomes guests through a Chunnel entrance and then immediately captures their attention with an eye-catching, restaurant-wide Union Jack ceiling mural and custom neon sculpture, handsomely tailored servers and a menu which incorporates a modern approach to the classic steakhouse selections.
“I wanted the space to be bold and innovative, and I imagined doing something new with the steakhouse concept in Las Vegas. To achieve that, we’ve put together an amazing team who together created a contemporary, fresh and innovative menu,” Ramsay says. “I am so excited to be here in Las Vegas, share in the excitement of opening day and start welcoming guests to my very first Vegas-based restaurant.”
Additionally, Paris Las Vegas will be featured on Ramsay’s popular kitchen series “Hells Kitchen,” which will debut in a two-night season premiere event on Monday, June 4, and Tuesday, June 5, on Fox. In this hit show, aspiring restaurateurs brave Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he puts the competitors through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win the life-changing grand prize. At the conclusion of this season the grand prize will be a head chef position working under executive chef Kevin Hee at Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas.
Ramsay’s vision for the restaurant is reflected in the dishes on the modern steakhouse menu. Gordon Ramsay Steak showcases prime beef dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days and cuts like the 32-ounce Royal Long-bone Chop for two hand-selected by Pat LaFrieda as well as American Kobe. With a nod to his British roots, Ramsay has expanded on the traditional land and sea choices and developed a menu that is both distinctive and creative:
• British Ale Onion Soup made with Boddingtons Pub Ale, caramelized onion broth and Welsh rarebit
• Smoked Beef Tartare accented with lemon zest, red onion, capers and Guinness-infused mustard seeds, served with Yokon Gold herb chips
• Colorado Lamb Chop complemented by flavors of Shepard’s Pie, lamb meatballs, peas, carrots and potato puree
• Calcanoon made with potato-cabbage croquettes and served with red wine-braised cabbage
• Sticky Toffee Pudding composed of sweet pudding cake, brown sugar toffee and a brown butter ice cream
Guests will have the option to choose their libation choice with the aid of an interactive iPad by ordering their drink directly from the device. The iPad will contain details about each of the more than 325 labels represented on the wine list as well as photos and components of the “Perfect Ten,” a collection of Gordon Ramsay Steak’s signature cocktails:
• HK Antioxidant: Veev Acai Liqueur, lemon, blueberries
• Southside: Plymouth Gin, lime, mint, Perrier Jouet Champagne
• English Garden: Hendricks Gin, lemon, basin, cucumber, basil-infused rock candy, celery bitters
David Hoenemeyer, president of Paris Las Vegas welcomes Gordon Ramsay to the resort: “When you walk into this restaurant, you know you have arrived somewhere very different. It has real energy, and the design is one-of-a-kind. Ramsay and his team truly created a steakhouse that is memorable and delicious. I couldn’t be more excited to have Gordon Ramsay Steak here at Paris.”
