Hell’s Kitchen is back and open for business
Caesars Palace reopened today and, with it, one of the Strip’s most popular restaurants since opening in 2018: Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, a physical incarnation of the reality cooking show adored by millions, featuring the signature Red and Blue Kitchens and, occasionally, an appearance by the man himself.
Ramsay hasn’t changed his menu much since opening, and that’s very good news for fans of the food and the chef.
One of the most popular drinks here is the Notes From Gordon. The delicious gin-based cocktail also features green tea, lemongrass, peach and lemon, and is delivered with a scroll containing a pithy piece of wisdom issued on the show by the chef, like “There is more smoke in this kitchen than in Snoop Dogg’s tour bus.” Another worthy favorite is Smoke on the Blvd, with rye, Aperol, vermouth and amaro (the presentation is very cool).
Scallops are stand-out appetizers, as well as Iberico ham on flatbread. And the beet salad is darned tasty. Although menus at Vegas restaurants change seasonally, Ramsay’s beef Wellington will keep on keeping on. It’s a beautiful bundle of pastry and tender meat with potato purée—and if you’re a vegetarian, count yourself lucky, because the restaurant also serves an incredible vegetarian Wellington, with layers of mushroom, quinoa and veggies pressed into the pastry. But you don’t have to have the Wellington—crispy skin salmon earns raves, too, and if you need that filet mignon or New York strip, it’s here. Caesar salad makes a light option; add grilled chicken or shrimp for protein. Adding wild mushrooms as a side will have you happy.
And although Ramsay’s beef Wellington is definitely a star in any of his restaurants, so, too, is the sticky toffee pudding. This signature dessert is something guests can’t seem to get enough of—in the first year that Hell’s Kitchen was open in Las Vegas, more than 135,000 of them were served. The dish is super moist, served with Speculoos ice cream to cut the richness of the sauce. For a visually entrancing dish, order pineapple carpaccio, which comes out seemingly “smoking.”
