Video Poker can be an important part of a Las Vegas vacation. There’s especially a good chance that you’ll play video poker if you enjoy hanging out at a casino bar and receiving complimentary drinks. It used to be that you could play video poker at any denomination at any speed and receive a “free” drink.
LAS VEGAS (Nov. 7, 2019) – Celebrated multi-Michelin star chef and television personality, Gordon Ramsay, is introducing an array of modern menu items and a lighter aesthetic in ambiance at his flagship restaurant on the famous Las Vegas Strip, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas. New items including a vegetarian and vegan menu, softer décor elements, enhanced lighting, additional seating in the lounge and increased options for private dining can now be experienced at the widely popular restaurant.
“Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas holds a special place to me as it was my very first restaurant in Las Vegas and with Caesars Entertainment, which has now flourished to eleven restaurants, four of those being Gordon Ramsay Steaks,” said Ramsay. “It was important to me to bring something new back to the flagship after seven incredibly successful years—including lighter, more feminine touches and distinguished décor, as well as reimagined dishes and presentations that complement our signature items.”
The reimagination of the restaurant is evident from the moment guests enter the iconic Chunnel, which now features customized art depicting the Paris and London skylines. At the end, discover an Instagram-worthy image of Gordon Ramsay etched in glass.
Other noteworthy design features, led by EDG Interior Architecture + Design, include new original artwork and photography, a Vegas-themed wall-art steer, 3D art sculptures, new chairs, booths, enhanced atmospheric lighting and sound, new carpet, kitchen equipment and a new statement piece – a backlit knife wall that can now be found in all of the new regional Gordon Ramsay Steak restaurants.
The bar and lounge at Gordon Ramsay Steak now offers additional seating, making it the perfect spot before or after a show, or for a casual bite and drink. Enjoy selections from the full menu or the special bar menu, including the new Kobe Beef Burger and plenty of new “Perfect Ten” cocktails.
Upstairs discover an impressive Private Dining Room with multiple televisions and flexible seating configurations to accommodate varying groups and more than 100 guests. The newly designed space also features a window overlooking the dining room, bringing in the energy of the buzzing restaurant. It can be separated into three areas that may be open or closed to offer additional privacy.
The menu at the newly reimagined Gordon Ramsay Steak features several new items and presentations as well as a dedicated vegetarian and vegan menu. Three new appetizers make their debut including fluke crudo with grilled hearts of palm, watermelon radish and orange segments; lobster crudo; and duck scotch egg. New entrees include a Rack of Lamb, Roasted Chicken Breast and Beef Short Rib. New sides including vegan broccolini with roasted grapes; tofu bacon and purple cauliflower; and a curried whole grain trio also join the offerings as well as roasted Brussel sprouts; a potato flight of three loaded potatoes served with one of each style – caviar, Oscar and fried egg and duck bacon.

Quarterly casino earnings calls and reports often have information that we can use to look at the current and future state of the companies. The calls, specifically, don’t have major breaking news. This week Red Rock Resorts (AKA Station Casinos) dropped a news bomb that was news but not all that surprising.
One of the most famous casino brands in Las Vegas has added a new bar and entertainment space as well as hotel rooms. Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas has quietly been upgrading the property. They recently opened Whiskey Licker Up Saloon.
Bally’s is quickly becoming Las Vegas’ home for magic. They recently renamed the Windows Theater as The Magic Attic. If you haven’t been to Bally’s in a while, this is the venue where Wayne Newton performed on the mezzanine level of the property. His show is now at Caesars Palace.
Quarterly earnings are the best and worst at the same time. They often have interesting information. The earnings calls are another level. They often have additional commentary that isn’t in the reports and press release. Let’s explore more in Vegas News. Earnings reports and calls can also be incredibly boring for someone not financially invested.
The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) is the annual Las Vegas gathering of the casino business in the US. There are panel discussions and speakers that dive into ways the casino industry operates today and how they can better conduct business in the future. The expo part of G2E is much more interesting.
