Martorano's will hit the Strip in 2014.

Cook, restaurateur, DJ and author Steve Martorano will expand his brand of Italian-American dining with a second location of his Martorano's restaurant opening at Paris early next year. His original Las Vegas spot at the Rio recently celebrated six years in business, located on the mezzanine level near the Chippendales Theater. The new restaurant at Paris will take the place of Le Provencal, an Italian-themed restaurant along the property's Le Boulevard shopping and dining corridor.

Like the Rio restaurant, the new Martorano's will maintain old-school atmosphere complemented by classic movie scenes and the music of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, until later hours when classic R&B, disco and classic rock boosts the vibe with a bit more party-ready energy. The menu will be maintained, including signature dishes like the eggplant stack, South Philly cheesesteak, rigatoni with Sunday pork gravy and the famous homemade meatballs, but the Paris restaurant will serve lunch and dinner. Martorano's new spot will also offer a large bar and patio reminiscent of the original Fort Lauderdale restaurant.
