We were all excited when the peripatetic TV chef decided to open his first Las Vegas outpost. Now he’s doing a gastropub in the old Bradley Ogden space at Caesars Palace and has plans to open a third restaurant, Flame Burger, in Planet Hollywood. But he’ll have a hard time topping his Paris Las Vegas steak house, which you enter through a tunnel that copies the Chunnel, which goes from France, under the English Channel, into England. This is much more than a steak house: The menu is stacked with pub fare, such as a terrific British ale onion soup, great fish and chips, and that classic dessert, sticky toffee pudding. It goes without saying that Ramsay’s steaks are great, too.

Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
