Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas’ new head chef, Christina Wilson, returns to the menu items that catapulted her into fame as the award-winning steakhouse introduces the first-ever Hell’s Kitchen Limited Edition Tasting Menu in honor of her season 10 win. Wilson prevailed over 18 competitors in the hit show, becoming the first contestant to win a position in a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. The special five-course prix-fixe menu featuring familiar dishes from the popular show presents the first “Hell’s Kitchen” menu in a Ramsay restaurant, and gives guests the first opportunity to see and taste creations prepared on the show in their most flawless form.

diningroom_295x225

An amuse-bouche featuring the Scotch egg leads the taste-bud tour and sets the tone by being brilliantly accented by Berkshire pork sausage and red wine-braised cabbage. The first course showcases the visually pleasing and perfectly prepared hamachi crudo topped with Iberico ham gelée, American caviar and truffle crème fraîche. A Ramsay specialty that intimidates most “Hell’s Kitchen” contestants, the scallop risotto featuring diver scallops with parmesan and herb risotto, serves as the refined meal’s second course. Ramsay’s signature dish, beef Wellington, stands as the meal’s third course and main dish. Prepared to medium-rare, the unparalleled delicious filet is surrounded with mushroom duxelle and prosciutto then wrapped in a puff pastry and served with glazed root vegetables, potato purée and red wine demi-glace. A piece of mouth-watering caramel apple cake topped with salted peanut ice cream, apple gastrique and cinnamon anglaise completes the meal and is the final piece of the perfectly-crafted special menu.

The tasting menu, which will change seasonally, is limited to the entire table. The first 1000 diners that order the menu each season will receive a souvenir folder of the Hell’s Kitchen Limited Edition Tasting Menu and a photo of Chef Ramsay, Executive Chef Kevin Hee and Head Chef Christina Wilson signed by Chef Wilson and Chef Hee to take home. The cost of the menu starts at $145 per person with a wine pairing available for an additional $75.

Just six months after its debut, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas continues to earn accolades and awards. From service to the dining experience, media and critics are showering the restaurant with acknowledgments while the public demonstrates its approval by making the restaurant one of the hottest reservations to secure in a city filled with some of the most acclaimed names in food.

sized-the-london-gordon-ramsay

Embracing an exciting new direction that better resonates with L.A.’s relaxed, communal dining scene and the Southern California lifestyle, Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood has unveiled a menu exclusively focused on sharable small plates.

The menu, created by Chef Anthony Keene, remains dedicated to contemporary Western European cuisine with subtle Asian influences, reinterpreting the award-winning recipes of Gordon Ramsay with the same commitment to quality and presentation.  Complementing its more accessible à la carte menu will be a less formal approach to service, redesigned uniforms and a more upbeat social atmosphere.

“We are excited to unveil this new concept for Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood, which moves the restaurant away from heavier prix-fixe menus and toward the small plate style of dining that has become the new norm in Los Angeles,” explained General Manager Edward Costa.  “We remain committed to the excellent standards of Gordon Ramsay and imaginative dishes that use only the freshest seasonal ingredients sourced from the region.”

Among the new menu’s starters ($9-15) are warm radicchio salad w/candied pecans, bleu cheese and apples; beets, avocado toast, lettuce and “Green Dirt Farms” sheep’s milk cheese w/walnut dressing; ricotta cheese gnocchi w/truffle and green cabbage sauce; risotto, butternut squash w/mushrooms; and steak tartare w/steak fries and fresh horseradish.

Meat-based small plates ($14-24) include braised pork belly w/scallop, curried noodles and clams; prime “rib cap steak” w/pommes frites and béarnaise; and roasted lamb w/merguez sausage and lentils.

For heartier appetites, large plates ($24-45) offer such selections as prime New York steak, marrow crusted; baked organic chicken w/preserved lemon; and Liberty Farms duck w/duck meatballs and star anise; as well as dishes for two ($80-89) such as butter poached lobster w/sweet corn; and the restaurant’s signature “Gordon Ramsay’s” Beef Wellington.

A redesigned bar menu ($11-18) makes the culinary creativity of Gordon Ramsay even more accessible to those stopping by for an after-work drink or just to socialize.  Items include char-grilled burger w/Grafton cheddar and red onion jam; pork belly sliders w/quail egg; crispy chicken dumplings w/hoisin, pickled cucumbers and sriracha; steak tartare w/steak fries and fresh horseradish; fish & chips w/tartar sauce and English pea puree; and steamed mussels and frites.  Along with a selection of pizzettes ($12-15), including margherita w/mozzarella, tomato and basil; and manila clams w/garlic, bacon and pecorino, the bar menu also offers sushi ($12-18) such as crispy rock shrimp tempura w/sweet chili; spicy tuna roll w/cucumber; and shrimp tempura roll w/pickled ginger. A charcuterie platter for two ($21) features cured meats w/mustard and grilled bread.

It’s On! New ‘Culinary Clash’ master chef competition pits the best
Las Vegas Chefs in an interactive experience, unfolding over four weeks

0749_295x225_web

The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas have announced CULINARY CLASH, a new competition for the resort’s famed team of chefs. This four-week competition will result in the rise of a new legend on The Las Vegas Strip - The VENETIAN VICTOR, winner of the first CULINARY CLASH master chef competition.

The late-evening competition hosted by local lifestyle celebrities Claudine Grant and Robin Leach, unfolds from 10pm until 2am on Nov. 29, Dec. 7, 14 and 21. It is open to all sous chefs and chefs de cuisine at the 30+ restaurants located inside The Venetian and The Palazzo, including Sushi Samba, Table 10, First Food, TAO, Aquaknox, Zine, Lagasse Stadium, Carnevino, Public House, Valentino, Delmonico, B&B, Rattlecan, LAVO, Otto Enoteca, and Bouchon.

Chefs will be challenged to create recipes using ingredients provided in a “mystery basket,” to be prepared in mobile “food truck” kitchens, located on the Las Vegas Strip at The Venetian’s Doge’s Palace plaza. The head-to-head clash will be broadcasted live on a giant screen on The Venetian Clock Tower for all audience members to appreciate. Each chef’s creation will then be available for sampling.

Culinary Clash will give guests the occasion to experience Italian-inspired food and drinks while joining in a festive holiday outdoor party. Each cooking battle will be highlighted with street entertainment, DJ music and an after party provided by TAO.

Expect plenty of surprises, including guest appearances by The Venetian and The Palazzo’s celebrity chefs, who will head the prestigious judging panel:

Round 1 - Nov. 29 - Chef Emeril Lagasse

Round 2 - Dec. 7 - Chef Mario Batali

Round 3 - Dec. 14 (Semifinals ) Chef Sammy DeMarco

Round 4 - Dec. 21 (Finals) Surprise Chef TBA

At the conclusion of the Culinary Clash, the surprise chef and prestigious judging panel will crown a victor chef. This Venetian Victor and a guest will receive a trip to Italy, the inspiration behind The Venetian.

“This event is going to be a lot of fun,” said Sebastian Silvestri, vice president of food and beverage at The Venetian and The Palazzo. “And what better place to host such a competition than Las Vegas, which has become one of the greatest food cities in the world.”

In fact, Much of The Venetian’s fame comes from its reputation as a culinary capital of the Las Vegas Strip. Hosting nine James Beard Award-winning chefs and their restaurants, more than any other property in Las Vegas, millions of guests have found culinary inspiration at The Venetian and The Palazzo.

The event is part of Winter in VeniceTM, the second-annual celebration of the winter holiday season on the Las Vegas Strip, dubbed “A Gift of The Venetian.” With 50 days of seasonal experiences throughout both resorts, Winter in Venice is the ultimate destination for Christmas in Las Vegas, running Nov. 18, 2012 through Jan. 6, 2013.

In 2012, Winter in Venice will feature a new marquee element, an exclusive six-week run of “Mannheim Steamroller Christmas in Las Vegas, by Chip Davis,” featuring beloved and iconic holiday music in The Palazzo Theatre. In addition, a schedule of memorable Italian-inspired experiences will include a nightly enchanting winter parade, whimsical tree-lighting ceremonies, a stunning new 3D light projection shows, an elaborate Winter in Venice fantasy scene in The Palazzo Waterfall Gardens, and - a fan favorite - the return of the picturesque skating rink above The Venetian’s romantic outdoor Grand Canal.

In its first year, Winter in Venice captured the attention - and the hearts - of visitors around the world, including Travel + Leisure magazine. In fact, the prestigious publication touted the Winter In Venice skating rink in its feature on the “world’s coolest skating rinks.” The article, which shared a short list of the magazine’s favorite venues, said: “Some of the coolest [rinks] can be found where you’d least expect them-say, in the desert. The Venetian [in Las Vegas] debuted a rink in 2011, complete with a holiday-theme light show. It now touts a package deal that combines a skating session with an outdoor gondola ride-only in Vegas, indeed”.

The best way to experience Winter in Venice is by staying overnight at The Venetian or The Palazzo, taking advantage of additional experiences available to resort guests. Overnight stays begin at $149 per night, plus tax and resort fee. Additional package options include:

A special “Mannheim Steamroller Suite Package” includes two front orchestra tickets to Mannheim Steamroller Christmas - Vegas by Chip Davis (a $270+ value), starting at $229 per night, based on a two-night minimum stay.

  • The “Winter in Venice Prestige Package,” includes special experience upgrades, including a picture-perfect holiday “Elf tuck in” for families. Other amenities include a private check-in desk experience with champagne, nightly complimentary holiday cocktail reception, and complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon tea and coffee, and evening hors d’oeuvres. Packages start at $279 per night, based on a two-night minimum stay.

Overnight guests also receive Passaporto di Winter in Venice, which includes specials for skating, retail, dining, entertainment and spa, with offers valued at more than $1,000. For those who book an upgraded suite (including the Winter in Venice Prestige Package), a Premiere Passaporto di Winter in Venice will feature additional exclusive offers increasing the value to more than $1,400.

A seasonal Winter in Venice cocktail menu, including holiday-inspired spiced cocktails such as Gondolier Blanco, Da Vinci Remedy, and Pom Prosecco will be available throughout the resort lounges, including The Bourbon Room, Zebra Lounge, Bellini Bar, Fusion Mixology Bar and Laguna Champagne Bar.

Holiday-themed menus and specials will be offered by select world-class restaurants throughout the holiday including Aquaknox, B&B, Bouchon, Canaletto, Canyon Ranch Café, Delmonico, FIRST Food & Bar, Grand Lux Cafe, Pinot Brasserie, Postrio, Table 10, LAVO Italian Restaurant and Valentino.
