Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar to Sizzle on the Las Vegas Strip
March 12, 2014 by VegasNews.com
Chef, restaurateur, New York Times Best-Selling author and Emmy Award-winning TV host Guy Fieri is proud to announce his first Las Vegas restaurant, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, to premiere center Strip at The Quad Resort & Casino in late April.
The restaurant will offer guests a taste of Fieri’s signature cuisine featuring bold flavors and unique twists on traditional dishes.
“Opening a restaurant in Las Vegas has been a great dream of mine and being in the heart of the Strip makes this restaurant that much more special,” said Fieri. “Most people come to Las Vegas with one goal – to have a good time – and I get the chance to offer really delicious, creative and funky food at the epi-center of fun; I see it as the perfect match.”
Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night dining, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar will feature a delicious blend of casual foods including an extensive variety of burgers, wings, tacos, small bites and shareable food items.
“Guy Fieri brings a fresh perspective to the Las Vegas dining scene,” said Regional President and General Manager, Eileen Moore. “Fieri’s deep roots with UNLV and the local community expand the unique culinary experience to a Strip-side location full of energy, fun, and a carefully orchestrated food and drink menu.”
Fieri’s signature Vegas Fries, a tribute to his college days at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) will be featured with a local spin on the favorite. The sidewinder cut fries are carefully tossed in buffalo seasoning and wing sauce, topped with shaved blue cheese, celery, carrots, and accompanied by the blue-sabi dipping sauce. Other items include Guy’s Fireball Wings – a unique rendition of the traditional wings into the “lollipop” cut chicken wings. The brined, twice cooked and seasoned wings are tossed in buffalo-style sauce, and spiked with a blast of Fireball Whiskey for an extra kick of flavor. Taking the simple freshness of a Mexican street taco and blending it with the exotic zest of a Vietnamese sandwich creates the signature Bahn Mi Tacos. Crispy baguette taco shells, firecracker pulled pork, fresh cilantro, pickled carrots, shaved jalapenos and sweet chili mayo come together with a spicy Sriracha dip to create the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.
The restaurant’s extensive drink menu will feature 16 craft beers, four wines on draft, in addition to the extensive Sonoma County wine selection and a frozen tap system shot bar that will create a one-of-a kind experience for guests. Instead of having shots strained or mixed with ice, which then run the risk of getting diluted, the frozen tap system bar will dispense eight different shots straight out of iced dispensers.
“Through Guy’s travels, his understanding of what people love has created a new level of flavor, filled with diverse ingredients that will elevate the casual dining scene in Las Vegas,” said Regional Vice President of Food and Beverage, Jeffrey Frederick. “Just like a great DJ ‘mashes’ music genres to bring excitement to the ear, Fieri’s cuisine mashup of regional specialties creates mind-blowing flavors for the palate.”
The two-level 10,000-square foot space will feature a large outdoor patio and dining area to seat 185 patrons who will be able to enjoy the panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. The cooking space will encompass a metal, tile, and wood theme that closely resembles Fieri’s kitchen at home. Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar will feature an open design with wood and steel elements along with repurposed materials.
Fieri’s tattoos will be incorporated as part of the design elements throughout the restaurant and bar, and memorabilia from his alma mater, UNLV will be featured throughout the venue.
The restaurant is adjacent to the popular Carnaval Court and The Quad’s main entrance.
