Chef, author and television personality Giada De Laurentiis plans to open her very first restaurant in early 2014 at the upcoming and all-new luxury lifestyle resort Gansevoort Las Vegas. This innovative concept is expected to open in early 2014 in conjunction with the hotel and casino.
Located in the heart of the dynamic city of Las Vegas, De Laurentiis’ outlet will become the cornerstone of the hip and luxurious destination, located on the second level above the casino floor. This outlet will boast al fresco dining and breathtaking views of the Las Vegas Strip and the Bellagio fountains.
“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’ cuisine will embrace her birthplace of Rome, mirroring her passion for Italian cooking with lighter, Californian influences. Guests can enjoy her signature dishes made famous through her many cookbooks and “Food Network” television shows, along with uniquely crafted family recipes that focus on quality ingredients and great flavors.
