Gordon Ramsay bringing ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ to Las Vegas Strip

A top position at Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace has been the prize for winners of Gordon Ramsay’s long-running TV series.

The restaurant will soon serve as the show’s stage.

The 19th and 20th seasons of “Hell’s Kitchen” will be staged at Ramsay’s torridly popular, Strip-side restaurant. Ramsay made that announcement Friday night as he held his one-year anniversary party at Caesars.

“We’re very much looking forward to having the show here. We’re going to be creative with the challenges, the rewards, the punishments, and how to present the show in this atmosphere,” Ramsay said after toasting a full house of VIPs at the anniversary party. “We are absolutely going to promote this restaurant, and also Las Vegas. We’ll use a cross-section of Vegas in the show and we are very happy to have it here, and I think viewers will be, too.”

There is a rush order on taping, too: Cameras are supposed to roll in this spring.

Season 18 of “Hell’s Kitchen” just finished, with returning chef Ariel Fox of New York’s Dos Caminos winning the prize of $250,000. Fox also will serve as an occasional guest chef at the Caesars restaurant. The theme was “Rookies vs. Veterans,” and Fox had placed third on the show in 2005.

Also on hand from the Hell’s Kitchen restaurant team were Season 17 champ and Head Chef Michelle Tribble; Executive Chef Jennifer Murphy, and General Manager Louie Maione. Also around the room were superstar chef Guy Savoy (who opened his restaurant at Caesars 13 years ago), who took up a table with Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner and GM Sean McBurney. Fox 5’s Sean McAllister hosted the brief program at the top and introduced Ramsay, who drew a healthy cheer.

The TV series will only boost exposure for Ramsay’s worldwide brand, and his partner company on the Strip.

“We’re going on 15 years, 20 seasons, and there’s no series today that goes even past 10 seasons,” Ramsay said. “We are really proud of how we’ve been able to sustain the show’s popularity.”

A year into his run on the Strip, Ramsay said he still marvels at the attention his restaurant generates.

“I’m still sort of getting used to the fact that at 10:30 in the morning, there is a line outside the door,” said Ramsay, whose Strip restaurant has served more than 400,000 guests since opening in January 2018. “I’m just glad we didn’t go bigger. We’ve got 300 seats. Thank God we didn’t try to go to 400. But our team is great. They hustle. They can handle anything.”
