Chef Gordon Ramsay Leads New British Invasion of the Las Vegas Strip with Opening of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill and Gordon Ramsay BurGR

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace will open Dec. 18

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment announced today that Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill will open at Caesars Palace Dec. 18, and that Gordon Ramsay BurGR will open at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Dec 22.  Two restaurants from the same chef opening within one week of each other in two different casino resorts is a monumental feat never experienced on the famed Las Vegas Strip.  Following the highly successful opening of Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas in May, the opening of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace® and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino marks three Gordon Ramsay restaurants to open in Las Vegas in less than a year, expanding his relationship with Caesars Entertainment Corp.

"It's been incredible the positive reception Gordon Ramsay Steak has received since opening at Paris in May," said Gordon Ramsay.  "We've been developing these different concepts for quite a while to deliver three distinct, unique dining experiences with the variety, originality, and high quality that we believe people want and appreciate."

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, the neighborhood restaurant conceptualized by the award-winning chef, will open for dinner Dec. 18 and lunch in mid-Jan. 2013.  The 290 seat restaurant will be the most authentic English pub experience in Las Vegas, as only a native UK chef can provide.

Chef Jeremy Berlin has been selected as executive chef of the novel concept and will oversee the kitchen operations. Berlin moved to Las Vegas from Los Angeles where he served as executive chef of Church and State. Berlin was previously a member of Ramsay's brigade as Executive Sous Chef of Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood and sous chef of Gordon Ramsay at the London NYC.

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.  With proximity to the Colosseum, the entrance of the Forum Shops and the self-parking garage, the restaurant will be a convenient location for both locals and visitors enjoying the Caesars Palace amenities.

Four days after the opening of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, the celebrated chef will open his first burger experience restaurant, Gordon Ramsay BurGR, at the center-Strip Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. BurGR, a name that plays on the celebrity chef's initials, will be located steps from the famous Las Vegas Strip at the entrance of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino adjacent 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.

The cocktail program will feature a selection of traditionally made cocktails, crafted with fresh ingredients with made-from-scratch syrups.

With a location that draws on the energy of both the casino and the nearby Miracle Mile shops, the room is designed in a youthful way with a stylish and modern ambience.  The vividly colored room will seat 200 and will be accented by an undulated ceiling, steel and concrete floor, keg display, open kitchen and 30 foot fire feature.  The uniforms, designed by Allison Leach, contrast the bright colors of the restaurant with their muted tones.  Allison Leach, known for her costume design for the hit shows Glee and Mad Men, helped to set the industry trend for restaurant uniform design with Gordon Ramsay Steak and continues her visionary work at BurGR.  To learn more, view the teaser video at http://youtu.be/XZKd57w5LyI

"With numerous hit TV shows entertaining viewers all over the world, I can't think of a better chef to welcome to Planet Hollywood, a resort with a spotlight on fame, than Gordon Ramsay," said Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino president David Hoenemeyer. "BurGR will cater to both guests who are fans of Gordon Ramsay and who are in search of a perfect burger and shake."

"Gordon Ramsay might be the only chef ambitious and talented enough to open two restaurants within days of each other without a second thought," said Planet Hollywood vice president of food and beverage Jeffrey Frederick. "We are thrilled to bring this new restaurant to our guests and look forward to another successful collaboration."

Gordon Ramsay will kick-off the week opening his two new Las Vegas restaurants on Dec. 17 with a "British invasion" of the Las Vegas Strip.

GORDON RAMSAY
Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England.  With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management.  His dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of the world's leading chefs, such as Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White in London, and Guy Savoy and Joel Robuchon in France.

In 1993 Ramsay became chef of Aubergine in London. Within three years, he was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay set up his first wholly owned and namesake restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world – three Michelin stars.  Today, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is London's longest-running restaurant to hold this award, and Ramsay is one of only four chefs in the U.K. to maintain three stars.

Now internationally renowned, Ramsay has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to the United States. The group continues to grow with recent openings such as Bread Street Kitchen in London's City district; two ventures in Doha, Qatar; Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas; and The Fat Cow in Los Angeles.  Ramsay received an OBE (Order of the British Empire awarded by Queen Elizabeth II) in 2006 for services to the industry.

Ramsay has also become a star of the small screen both in the U.K. and internationally, with U.K. shows such as GORDON'S GREAT ESCAPES and GORDON RAMSAY: SHARK BAIT, as well as four top-rated FOX shows that air in more than 200 countries worldwide: KITCHEN NIGHTMARES, HELL'S KITCHEN, MASTERCHEF and HOTEL HELL. He is also a published author of a number of books, many of which have become bestsellers around the world, most notably his autobiography, Roasting in Hell's Kitchen. 

Ramsay has a global partnership with WWRD (Waterford®, Wedgwood®, Royal Doulton®), which offers quality home and lifestyle products, and he also has brought out a range of Seriously Good sauces for the charity Comic Relief.

He lives with his wife, Tana and four children, along with their bulldog Rumpole and two cats. He divides his time between Los Angeles and South London.
