(ELV update: It was announced to staff at the restaurant last night — 8.26.11 — that Jan. 2, 2012 will be the last day of operation for Bradley Ogden. We have also heard (unconfirmed) rumors that the menu will become more steak and burger friendly for the last several months of operation. Stay tuned).
It may be re-opening tonight for dinner service, but sources close to the situation have informed Eating Las Vegas® that Bradley Ogden — the only Las Vegas restaurant ever to win a James Beard national “Best New Restaurant of the Year Award” (in 2004) — will be serving its last supper sometime in mid-October.
The space will be re-configured as a gastro-pub in conjunction with Gordon Ramsay.
Unlike many closings — which often happen quietly and without fanfare — expect this one to be quite a savory send-off, as plans are underway to bring many well-known young chefs (who cut their teeth here) back to appear for a big bash before the doors are closed for good and the logo retired.
