Gordon Ramsay has been a household name for sometime now. He’s not only popular in the US but in many parts of the world due to his many successful television shows. He’s currently a judge and the “demon chef” host in the critically-acclaimed show Hell’s Kitchen.
Ramsay has several restaurants in Las Vegas and they are being used as a key component to attract foodies to the city. Apparently, Las Vegas is facing many financial burdens at the minute, what with online casino and bingo platforms slowly overtaking the land-based entertainment options that litter Sin City’s iconic Strip. Bingo halls aren’t as popular as they used to be in the early 90s, thanks to online bingo providers’ various reward promos and innovative games centered on popular TV and movies. It’s the same for Las Vegas’ casinos, as people don’t need to travel to Nevada anymore because of live dealer apps on smartphones. Because of this, Las Vegas is trying hard to attract customers through other means, and this includes hosting restaurants that bear the name of Michelin-star chefs such as Ramsay. So far, Ramsay seems to be the popular choice in Sin City as he currently owns two restaurants in Las Vegas namely Gordon Ramsay Steak and Gordon Ramsay BurGR.
Gordon specializes in beef dishes. Not only do his restaurants in Vegas use said protein, but also his signature beef wellington dish is well known on Hell’s Kitchen. Let’s see what the people are saying about his dishes.
Gordon Ramsay Steak – Paris Las Vegas
It seems that the Michelin-star chef lives up to his legend with this restaurant as most people seem to be satisfied with the service. Opentable has an overall 4.4/5 rating for the restaurant, while Yelp users gave it a 4/5. According to the reviews, the Beef Wellington Steak is always a winner, and is as tasty as it looks on TV. Other steak offerings such as bone-in rib eye and Kobe fillet are also the best sellers of the restaurant.
Gordon Ramsay BurGR – Planet Hollywood Las Vegas
His BurGR restaurant seems to be a winner, too. Among the 6,240 plus reviews of the restaurant on Trip Advisor, he was able to get a 4.5/5 rating. On Yelp, it’s 4/5. Some people are calling Gordon’s burger “The best BurGR they’ve ever tasted.” His truffle fries seem to go really well with the burgers, too. The place sells bacon made from duck meat, and it seems to be one of the reasons that keep people coming back for more.
Love him or hate him, Gordon seems to walk the walk. He may have a potty mouth but the people’s feedback is testament to his abilities as a world-renowned chef.
