Gordon Ramsay Steak

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.
