Gordon Ramsay spills the beans, kinda

In what has been called one of the city’s worst-kept secrets, TV’s celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay pseudo-announced his impending Paris steak house during the other worst-kept secret, the filming of the finale of the next season of Hell’s Kitchen, attended by thousands in the Barry Manilow Theatre at Paris Las Vegas on June 21. Chef Ramsay incorporated a number of local entertainers and chefs into the show, indicating with unusual caginess (he’s not known to mince his words) his intent to open a restaurant “very close to here.”

Rumors of his scoping out the property reached Vegas Seven last fall; the restaurant is expected to open this fall. And should you truly want to know who makes it to the Hell’s Kitchen finale before the season has even begun, a quick Twitter search will take care of that for you; more than one birdie in the audience committed the grave sin of Tweeting the names of the finalists. Season 9 begins July 18 and 19 on Fox; the Vegas finale will run in January.

Seven reasons to raise up a glass

1. Karma does indeed come around. The crisp, moderately dry sparkling white wine in the attractive single-serve glass bottle first took root in California and has finally washed up on Vegas’ thirsty shores this week. A four-pack of these convenient 187-milliliter bottles—cylindrical and wide-mouthed with a screw top to retain the wine’s effervescence—will run you $28, or $7 each at your local liquor store. You can also get your toast on at 30,000 feet as Karma is served on all Virgin America flights.
