Two More Gordon Ramsay Restaurants To Open Before Year's End

If you're having a hard time getting through to Gordon Ramsay Steak inside Paris, you'll soon have two other restaurants by the celebrity chef to try your luck at. But, if the wild success of GRS is any indicator, guests should be prepared to work just as hard to get into both of these new venues.

Caesars Entertainment says Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will open first in one week on December 18. Found inside Caesars Palace, the pub will only serve dinner until sometime in January when lunch service will be added.

Acting as two unique restaurants the grill section of the restaurant will feature a relaxed and friendly setting with dishes including New Zealand Red Snapper, lamb T-bone, whole brick pressed Cornish chicken, dry aged 30 oz. bone-in beef rib eye and spotted dog. The pub will feature elevated British pub food in a comfortable and lively setting showing sporting events from across the world on state of the art entertainment systems. The pub includes 36 beers served on tap plus 24 bottled beers. With an eye towards dishes that pair well with beer the pub menu includes English ale onion soup, shepherd's pie, and a selection of sausages, fried egg sandwiches and the classic pub fish and chips.

The center piece of the restaurant will be a striking bar with an array of beer taps and a backdrop reminiscent of iconic British telephone booths. A patio area will extend the restaurant towards the casino floor where guests can be part of the action. Tabletops will be comprised of rustic, pottery inspired dishes layered with unprocessed woods and rugged serving vessels. The uniforms are inspired by the English punk scene and will feature a number of multi-media pieces designed by Allison Leach, a continuing trend with Gordon Ramsay's Las Vegas restaurants.

Four days later on December 22, BurGR (see what they did there?) will make its debut at Planet Hollywood, next to the Extra! Lounge.

The BurGR menu will take the traditional burger, fries and milkshake comfort food combination to an entirely new level with selections like pork belly bao buns, sweet potato fries with vanilla powdered sugar and pudding shakes—a heavenly combination of thick milkshake and silky pudding. Whether traditional or unique burger preparations they will be crafted using the freshest, quality ingredients. Paying special attention to not only the ingredients but the method, beef patties will be cooked over an open flame fueled by hard woods, BurGR will be the only gourmet burger restaurant on the Strip to use this technique, creating a more complex and powerful flavor.

Not to be neglected, the beverage program will feature an extensive beer list and robust cocktail program. Focusing primarily on small and large format American craft beers, BurGR will serve 30 beers all from a stunning frozen tap wall with a selection of bottled beer. The cocktail program will feature a selection of traditionally made cocktails, crafted with fresh ingredients with made-from-scratch syrups.

Frankly, we're torn as to which we'd like to check out first. Let us know which concept interests you more in the comments below!

Neither place interests me

After eating at Paula Deen's in North Carolina and hearing horrible things about Guy Fieri's new restaurant in Times Square, I would never eat at a celebrity chef's restaurant unless I heard good things from friends who had eaten there first.

You need to get out more. Far more celebrity chefs rest's are good than bad. In fact many are spectacular.
