Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Labor Day weekend! This weekend has been packed with cleaning chores, spending time with family and friend by the pool, an amazing cookout, and finishing up some more of my office projects. I can not wait to give you guys a full tour of my new office once I am set up!
Today the blog I am getting to revisit a moment in Las Vegas that I had looked forward to experiencing for weeks leading up to Cosmoprof North America. I am a huge Gordon Ramsay fan and have been watching Hell’s Kitchen religiously since Season 3. One of my dreams is to one day visit Hell’s Kitchen and while this was 100% real deal, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas got me pretty darn close!
Early this year Hell’s Kitchen, the restaurant, opened at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and offers dinners an experience that is sure to delight any fan of the show. Hell’s Kitchen offers a tons of signature dishes from the show, a kitchen based off the two team rivalry, and a gorgeous dining room. While I did not get tons of photos of the dining room and entrance, you know I captured all the food! Melissa from The Daily Nail and I had a fabulous time and I just had to share!
First off we have to start off with a few of Hell’s Kitchen specialty cocktails. I went with Fear & Loathing which is a blend of el silencio mezcal, luxardo, cold-pressed blood orange juice, pineapple, and lemon. While this sounds like a girly fruit drink, the mezcal toned it down and gave it a lovely bite. Melissa went with Notes from Gordon which is a blend of plymouth dry gin, green tea, lemongrass, peach, and lemon. This was a super refreshing drink, it did come with a special note from Gordon.
Now for the food! After a lot of debating I went with the Hell’s Kitchen Signature Prix Fixe menu. My first coarse was some amazing pan seared scallops with an english pea pure, braised bacon lardons, and pickled fennel. The other option was a Caesar salad but come on, Hell’s Kitchen calls for scallops! This was my first time having scallops and wow, they were so delicious and cooked perfectly!
Now for the main course, the signature Beef Wellington! This amazing dish is served with a potato puree, glazed root vegetables, and red wine demi-glaze. I have had Beef Wellington two other times at Gordon Ramsay Steak and personally, I liked them better at Steak than Hell’s Kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious here too but it was bit cold and the flavor wasn’t as strong. A positive is it is much cheaper here than Gordon Ramsay Steak so if you are new to Beef Wellington, this is a great option to try out his signature dish.
The final dish was dessert and consisted of the signature Sticky Toffee Pudding with speculoos ice cream. This was so rich and incredibly tasty! Again, I prefer the Gordon Ramsay Streak version over Hell’s Kitchen but again cheaper and still super delicious!
Now for a few more location shots! Yes, the kitchen is split between red and blue and opened to the dining area. There was even a meeting while we were there and each side was lined up just like the show! You can clearly see Melissa and I both had a fabulous time!
So are you Hell’s Kitchen and/or Gordon Ramsay fans? I absolutely love visiting his restaurants! The dining experience is always amazing, food is delicious, and staff is some of the best in the industry. The Hell’s Kitchen Prix Fixe Menu is priced at $72 a person which in Las Vegas, is super reasonable for a fine dining meal! If you are in Vegas and looking for a fun experience with fine dining thrown in, check out Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I will see you all again soon! <3
