The new Forum Food Court is now open at Caesars Palace. Forum Food Court makes its debut with five dining options: Di Fara Pizza; Phillips Seafood; Smashburger; Earl of Sandwich; and Tiger Wok & Ramen, bringing fresh, quality ingredients to guests in a casual quick-service format (Pictured: Di Fara Pizzz).
Di Fara Pizza- A New York institution since 1964, Di Fara Pizza has a legion of followers and a never-ending list of awards and accolades. Di Fara Pizza was named “Best Pizza in New York” by several publications including New York magazine, Serious Eats and was proclaimed “the best of the best” by Anthony Bourdain. Di Fara was also the #1 Zagat rated pizzeria in New York City for eight years running, and Mayor Bill De Blasio declared Di Fara the “Best Pizza in NYC.” The Caesars Palace location will be the only other location of Di Fara Pizza, with each pie hand made using the finest and freshest imported ingredients including two types of mozzarella cheese, Grana Padano parmesan and San Marzano tomatoes. The pizza stays true to Domenico DeMarco’s original recipe, which has remained the same since day one, including the water—which has been flown in from the Catskill Mountains in New York. The menu features signature recipe pizzas, Calzones, sandwiches, pastas and classic New York desserts.
Smashburger- This is the first Strip location for the well-known burger restaurant. At Smashburger, the secret is in the smash. It starts with 100-percent—fresh, never frozen, All-natural Certified Angus Beef and is smashed on a 400 degree flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, the delicious burgers are served on toasted artisan buns and topped with a selection of the freshest produce, real cheeses, and highest-quality condiments.
Phillips Seafood- With a rich history of more than 100 years, Phillips Seafood introduces its first west coast location. Phillips prides itself on authenticity, with recipes spanning generations, passed to chefs from the kitchen of Shirley Phillips. The menu features seafood classics, including: Kettle Soups of New England clam chowder, Cream of Crab and Lobster Bisque; platters with crab cakes, grilled Mahi; steamed Dim Sum; and the Classic Lobster Roll.
Earl of Sandwich- The “World’s Greatest Hot Sandwich” makes its Caesars Palace debut, with its made to order, freshly baked favorites. Each ingredient is thoughtfully added, including the daily roasted beef, gourmet condiments and generous slices of the finest cheeses. Every sandwich is assembled on Earl of Sandwich signature artisan bread, which bakes fresh with each sandwich melding all the flavors perfectly.
Tiger Wok & Ramen– The first of its kind, Tiger Wok & Ramen offers guests a variety of Japanese and Chinese cuisine, including sushi rolls, Moo Shu Pork, Seasonal Stir Fry, Lo Mein noodles, two varieties of fried rice, made fresh daily ramen noodles with Tonkotsu and Shoyu broth that guests can customize with additional artisanal toppings, house braised pork belly and more.
Two additional outlets are set to open in January, including the family owned and operated Cincinnati-based Graeter’s ice cream.
Located adjacent to the famed Forum Shops at Caesars, in the former Cypress Street Marketplace, the 14,900-square-foot-space features contemporary and modern design, including new seating, fixtures and a full-service bar. Forum Food Court also includes a new Starbuck’s, which just opened in July. Forum Food Court is open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., with Di Fara open late till 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
