The newest celebrity chef in Las Vegas just opened his own restaurant at the Tropicana. Food Network star Robert Irvine now has Robert Irvine’s Public House, an ode to the comfort food he discovered through his travels.

The 9,000-square-foot restaurant features a 275-seat dining room complete with a wraparound bar, open kitchen design, private dining room and views of the Strip.

Inside, dishes such as a fork and knife burger with Vermont sharp cheddar fondue, mushrooms, onions, smoked bacon and a brioche roll; chicken fried duck confit with maple and sherry vinegar, braised kale and chard and buttery Sriracha sauce; stone fired shepherds pie with ground lamb, onion, English peas and mashed potato crust; English banoffee pie with banana, toffee and espresso ice cream; and Mason jar apple pie with five-year aged cheddar and vanilla ice cream appear on the menu.

“Opening a restaurant in Las Vegas has been a longtime dream of mine and being inside the iconic Tropicana Las Vegas makes Public House that much more extraordinary,” Irvine says in a press release. “With this restaurant, I am excited to share my travels through food and beverage, and presenting guests with good food and a great experience, all at a reasonable price. Public House is all about offering something for everyone.”

The restaurant features more than 32 beers on tap, 30 by the bottle, plus a variety of wines by the glass or bottle, and more then a dozen signature cocktails. Signature cocktails include El Karma and The Patroni; as well as healthy-inspired cocktails made with Boardroom Spirits such as the Cranberry Caipiroska and Beet Down, and much more.

Robert Irvine’s Public House, located on the casino floor of Tropicana Las Vegas, is open for daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations can be made by calling 702-739-2307.
