Gordon Ramsay Steak, the celebrity TV chef’s first Las Vegas venture, is scheduled to open at Paris Las Vegas in mid-May. Designed by San Francisco-based EDG Interior Architecture + Design, the restaurant will be a fresh, high-energy dining environment that playfully transports guests from Paris to London, and its design will celebrate Ramsay and the city of London, where he lives.

The concept will reflect edgy, exciting and bold designs and will bridge the resort’s Parisian theme with Ramsay’s British heritage—reflecting Ramsay’s early education that took place in the Paris kitchens of famous Michelin Star chefs such as Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon.

Gordon Ramsay Steak under construction for its mid-May 2012 opening at Paris Las Vegas.
A large-scale, neon sculpture commissioned by EDG Interior Architecture + Design from Canadian artist Andrey Berezowdky of SWON Design will serve as the figurative heart of the room. Representing Ramsay’s energy and inspired by his hand movements while he cooks, the red piece of art will hang just below the enormous Union Jack that makes up the ceiling of the dining room. The piece will be 12 x 12 x 4 feet; although, if laid flat, the hand-blown glass tubes would stretch more than 250 feet. The piece took more than a month to create (one whole week consisted of only glass blowing) and was shipped from Montreal to Paris Las Vegas in numerous 10-foot sections. It took more than a day to assemble.

The 200-seat restaurant spread between two floors will offer guests the opportunity to experience the exclusive beef-aging program created under the direction of Ramsay and his culinary team. Menu selections will range from traditional steakhouse fare with delectable cuts of beef to Ramsay’s signature fish and chips and shepherd’s pie. This new addition to Ramsay’s collection of restaurants will also offer fresh seafood, French-influenced sides and signature desserts.
