Food Network star, celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is ready to cooks up in her very first restaurant in Las Vegas. Her yet to be named restaurant will be the sole dining venue in the heart of the dynamic city, in the new Gansevoort Las Vegas, a luxury resort on the former site of Bill’s Gambling Hall. This outlet will boast 350 seats 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, many fans of De Laurentiis will be able to enjoy in 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.
“It’s exciting and it’s scary,” she says of the new restaurant, “but it will be fun. I will have views of the Bellagio fountains. I just feel if I was ever going to do a restaurant I couldn’t pass up this space. It’s too perfect.” Restaurant is set to open next year.
