If the food at Gordon Ramsay Steak is as dramatic as the interior threatens to be, Las Vegas is in for a treat.
We know that more than a few foodies and critics are lying in the weeds, waiting to take their shots at this place, but our staff is rooting for it.
Las Vegas needs Ramsay and Gordon Ramsay (the brand rather than the man) needs Las Vegas.
In a perfect world, he would be opening something more ambitious than another (groan) steakhouse, but that’s what sells to the turistas* and we gotta give ’em what they want — whether it’s has-been performers or hackneyed concepts.
His hit restaurant could reinvigorate our dining scene….or at least give it a little more star power…something our culinary culture — for better or worse — is built upon.
Getting those conventioneers into the back corner of the Paris Hotel is going to be a challenge, but if anyone can pull it off — who isn’t named Bobby Flay — we’re betting it’s Ramsay.
So go get ’em Gordon! And here’s hoping you and Las Vegas have a long and profitable future ahead of you.
