When we last caught up with Gordon Ramsay, he was checking in on his newest Strip restaurant—a fish and chips spot at the Linq Promenade—and had nothing but great things to say about Las Vegas. “It’s as good as anywhere now,” he said about the Vegas dining scene last fall. “New York, Paris, London, and that’s without adding in the glamour and magic that comes with Las Vegas. That’s just how good the food is here now.”
His excitement with Las Vegas has now resulted in his fifth restaurant collaboration with Caesars Entertainment, announced Friday just before the Vegas Uncork’d Grand Tasting event. With his TV show’s familiar pitchfork logo all ablaze in the fountains in front of Caesars Palace, Ramsay said he’d open the first Hell’s Kitchen restaurant at the Strip-side space formerly occupied by Serendipity 3. With indoor and outdoor seating for 300, the new eatery should open this fall.
On Thursday, MGM Resorts announced another restaurant set to join the makeover project at the Monte Carlo. Michelin-starred chef Bryce Shuman, formerly of Esquire Restaurant of the Year Betony in New York City, will be the chef of Primrose, one of the first restaurants slated to open at Park MGM. The restaurant will feature a “South of France-inspired, vegetable-forward menu, with an emphasis on open-fire cooking,” according to the announcement.
Primrose should open in the fall between the Park MGM lobby and pool. The restaurant will be managed by the Sydell Group, the hospitality company partnering with MGM to launch the Park MGM and NoMad Hotel concepts at the property known for now as Monte Carlo.
