  • RAMSAY LOCATIONS TURN ONE

    The Double Dare: Home Edition looks awesome.

    Celebrity chef and Morton Downey Jr. impressionist Gordon Ramsay was in town yesterday to celebrate the one-year anniversary of both Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood. He joined the staffs of both restaurants for a toast and celebratory cake which we assume was stuffed with paper towels since we can’t imagine he’d be gauche enough to forget the first anniversary is the paper anniversary.
    Ramsay also made an appearance at Fizz inside Caesars Palace later that evening, just to prove he wouldn’t go exclusively to restaurants with his name in the title.

    RAMSAY PICKS HELL’S KITCHEN WINNER

    This is Gordon’s “No one’s getting stabbed with a santoku knife tonight” face.

    Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars is getting a television-approved new head chef, as Ja’Nel Witt of Houston took down the 11th season of Hell’s Kitchen last night. She’ll serve under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin whipping up pub food for tourists who didn’t go enough to Bradley Ogden, getting yelled at significantly less than she did on the show.

    What’s better than getting humiliated on national television while your salted caramel burns to a crisp in the skillet behind you? Nothing, that’s what. Gordon Ramsay is holding his what-now-seems-to-be-yearly summer auditions for Hell’s Kitchen July 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Gordon Ramsay Pub inside Caesars. If you were really feeling smartassy, you’d get a Bastard Chef shirt made before you went.

    RAMSEY’S BURGERS SET TO OPEN


    “I toooooold you I would eat you!”

    British chef and TV personality Gordon Ramsey will open the doors to his third Las Vegas property tomorrow night when Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood seats its first guests.
    The Bobby Knight of restaurants has stormed Las Vegas in the past year opening Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas and Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace. Ramsey is reportedly hoping this third restaurant will convince Americans that British food is not disgusting.
    Gordon Ramsay BurGR will seat roughly 200 guests and have a giant photo of the oft-angered chef shouting what we assume is an F-Bomb.

    FIERI DOES RAMSAY

    Human “Hooters in the Sketchy Part of Town” and UNLV alum Guy Fieri was with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto during the opening of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars last night. We guess that means Kitchen Stadium is just going to be straight-up covered in jalapeno poppers and Chairman Kaga is going to rock sunglasses on the back of his head now.

    RAMSAY SPREADING EMPIRE


    Now experience the joy of getting yelled at while trying to eat a bacon cheeseburger.

    Gordon Ramsay, not content with just his Paris spot, is officially expanding into Caesars Dec. 18 and into Planet Hollywood Dec. 22. The latter is going to be called — wait for it — BurGR, because apparently all the good names were taken.

    The Caesars location went straight-up bland instead, calling itself the Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill. You don’t have to catch up to Wolfgang Puck all in one go, Gordo. You can spread it out a little bit.

    RAMSAY PUB TAKING OVER OGDEN SPOT

    Gordon Ramsay’s steady march through the Las Vegas culinary scene continues unabated, as the yelly chef will officially bring his Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill to the former Bradley Ogden space come late 2012.

    The menu will be based around British pub food and have more than 40 beers on tap, joining in on the ruckus that Todd English’s P.U.B. and Public House have going. It feels like a trend that’s 10 years too late at this point, but still, we suppose it’ll be nice to have a place to eat at Caesars Palace for under 60 bucks. At least, we hope, anyway.

    RAMSAY PAUSES FOR INDIE ROCK

    A grizzled-looking Gordon Ramsay is just a fun-lovin’ indie kid at heart. He was at the Cosmo Saturday night to check out Glaswegian rockers Snow Patrol. We assume he just spent the entire show screaming at Gary Lightbody that no one would ever love him because his creme brulee was tasteless and improperly torched.

    RAMSAY STRUTS HIS STEAK

    Yelly television chef Gordon Ramsay was at his eponymous steakhouse inside Paris Las Vegas today to give a cooking demonstration. By “cooking demonstration” we assume it means “calling his sous chef’s mother a whore for 25 straight minutes.” And then also there was steak.

    RAMSAY TRIPLING UP


    We assume he’s a huge fan of The Clash.

    Gordon Ramsay already announced he’s taking over the steakhouse at Paris, but it looks like his involvement with Caesars Entertainment will go even deeper than that. An item in today’s New York Post says Ramsay is actually going to have at least three restaurants in Caesars properties, “including a pub/bar and grill.”

    According to the story, Ramsay will have creative involvement, but not control. Which means no calling a sous chef’s mother a whore at any point. Pastry chef, maybe. The Post implies the pub will be at Caesars Palace, but it does seem to conflate Palace and Entertainment. Caesars Palace already has Central Michel Richard opening in September and Old Homestead coming in December.
