Gordon Ramsay is hardly the first celebrity TV chef to open a small empire of restaurants on the Strip, and like the others he is largely an absentee chef. But his branded steakhouse at Paris Las Vegas is no slouch. An expansive two-level dining area is capped off by a Union Jack flag design painted on the ceiling. It’s stylish without being stuffy, and that’s still rare in a Vegas steakhouse.
Signature Ramsay-style preparations of beef Wellington, shepherd’s pie, and sticky toffee pudding for dessert are all executed well, though the Hell’s Kitchen tasting menu is best left alone, given the high price tag. The main event, of course, is the steaks, which are aged for at least 28 days in the Himalayan salt room. Make reservations in advance.
Dress code: None. Stylish attire recommended.
