Celebrity chef/TV personality Gordon Ramsay has announced plans for the first-of its-kind Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen located at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, set to open in the winter of 2017. To commemorate the announcement, Ramsay ignited a 17-foot pitchfork, a replica of the “Hell’s Kitchen” pitchfork, in the center of Caesars’ fountains. This marks Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant and extends his successful partnership with Caesars Entertainment.
The restaurant, designed by Jeffrey Beers International, will begin construction this summer. Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen will seat nearly 300 guests, feature indoor and Strip-adjacent patio dining, and will offer a daily themed brunch, dinner and spirited bar menu.
According to a Caesars Entertainment press release, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen will be an “experiential and immersive destination restaurant, guests will feel transported to the studio set, as if they are participating in the globally popular television show, the 17th season of which will air during the 2017-2018 season on Fox. With design features that are engaging to all senses and are a nod to both the red and blue teams featured on the show, the dynamic and bustling kitchen will be the centerpiece of this unique eatery to be enjoyed and appreciated from every seat in the house.
“Fans of the show have been asking us to bring a ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ since day one, so I’m thrilled to finally be doing it here at Caesars Palace,” said Ramsay. “A key element of the show’s success has always been the diners’ experience, so we are excited for guests in Las Vegas to feel like they too are part of the show—flames and all.”
