Perfectly situated in the heart of the dynamic city of Las Vegas, chef, author and television personality Giada De Laurentiis is set to open her first restaurant at the all-new luxury lifestyle resort Gansevoort Las Vegas in early 2014. The outlet will offer breathtaking views of the famous Las Vegas Strip and will become the cornerstone of the hip and luxurious destination.
Food Network chef Giada De Laurentiis is prepping for the open of her very first restaurant at Gansevoort Las Vegas.
The chef’s restaurant is slated to open in early 2014 at the upcoming and all-new luxury lifestyle resort Gansevoort Las Vegas. This resort itself is expected to open in early 2014 in conjunction with the hotel and casino.
“Ever since I was a little girl hanging out at my grandfather’s restaurant, I’ve dreamed of having a restaurant of my own,” says De Laurentiis. “I’ve held back on past opportunities because I really wanted to be ready for the responsibility and challenges that come with a restaurant. Now, I couldn’t be more excited about working with Gansevoort Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment to turn this dream into a delicious reality. The location, the al fresco dining
and the views were just too good to pass up!”
De Laurentiis’ restaurant’s cuisine will showcase her passion for Italian cooking with some, Californian influences along the way. Fans of De Laurentiis’ cookbooks and dishes featured on her television show, will elated to know that can enjoy some of those signature dishes at this new restaurant.
“Gansevoort Las Vegas will be a completely unique boutique resort experience and will bring a new level of social excitement to the Las Vegas Strip
. Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub, Drai’s After Hours, the signature lobby bar, and now Giada’s very first restaurant, are certain to set the destination apart,” said Tariq Shaukat, chief marketing officer for Caesars Entertainment. “Giada’s exuberant warm personality and dynamic style will undoubtedly result in a restaurant that will not only be a perfect match for the experience we are creating, but also will become a destination in itself.”
With De Laurentiis’ vision in mind, the restaurant will be a completely new build-out, revealing a modern, yet sleek design with clean lines and pops of color. Los Angeles-based Studio Collective, whose prestigious portfolio includes several well-known hospitality venues including Thompson Hotel
in Beverly Hills and Hyde Lounge at The Staples Center
, will lead the overall design. The restaurant space will extend over the pedestrian walkway below, featuring large glass windows with daytime and nighttime views of the Strip. The overall design will bring forth a comfortable, warm and welcoming charm with natural light and unique energy. Posh living room-style furniture will provide a cozy space for guests to relax, while views of the open kitchen from the bar will create an air of excitement. Private dining room space will also be available for larger parties or group functions.
“Giada is a gem,” said Caesars Entertainment Regional Vice President of Food and Beverage Jeffrey Frederick. “She’s the first female celebrity chef to join the Caesars Entertainment family in Las Vegas and will fit right in with our lineup of many renowned chefs including Bobby Flay
, Gordon Ramsay
, Nobu Matsuhisa
and Guy Savoy
. Finally fans will experience firsthand Giada’s style and sophistication via her restaurant’s ambiance and cuisine.”
The new restaurant will open daily for lunch and dinner. The restaurant will be able to accommodate nearly 300 guests.
