While indulging at this past weekend’s Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit, we gleaned a few interesting tidbits of information from the chefs and executives, usually with a fork in one hand and a pen in the other. For one, during his May 8 after-party at B&B Burger & Beer, chef Mario Batali confirmed that while an Eataly Los Angeles is definitely in the works, plans for a Las Vegas outpost have unfortunately been called off—a major loss for this city’s dining scene.
However, we did hear that Gordon Ramsay will add yet another spot to his current trio of Las Vegas restaurants, an eponymously named fish-and-chips joint later this year in the Linq.
A third celebrity chef has cause to be proud: Guy Fieri’s Kitchen & Bar in the Quad has reportedly been doing 1,200 covers a day since opening its doors last month, ranking it among the busiest sit-down restaurants on the Strip.
One place that’s clearly on the outs, however, is Pure Nightclub in Caesars Palace, which we continue to hear is destined for a complete overhaul next quarter by owner Hakkasan Group. Also ripe for revision, we hear Circo in Bellagio might be transformed into a new Julian Serrano concept.
