Parisian Romance in the Desert
When you think of Vegas nowadays you think of LED lights, world renowned DJs, and pool parties. That is definitely Las Vegas. However, Las Vegas is also about escaping reality for a romantic getaway for two or a family trip, kids in tow. Amidst the bigger and newer hotels and resorts, conveniently in the middle of the Strip, lies the Paris Hotel and Casino. It maybe quieter on that side of the Eiffel Tower, but do not underestimate its allure.
Paris is home to the Tony Award-winning Best Musical of 2006, Jersey Boys – this show will have you singing along from beginning to end. It takes you into the lives and the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. You may recognize some of their major chart topping hits such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Sherry,” “My Eyes Adored You,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” and many more.
Hungry? There are plenty of dining options inside Paris Hotel. You have their buffet, cafes, and plenty of other choices but if you have limited time, Le Burger Brasserie and the newly opened Gordon Ramsay Steak are a must-have. Le Burger Brasserie is casual and fun. This sports bar has a full bar, lots of seating for small or large groups, plenty of big screens to watch any show or game and a burger menu that will leave you drooling and wanting more. If you don’t see any burgers to your liking, you can create your own and add a variety of toppings to it. Fried egg on top? Sure!
The newest addition to Paris Hotel and Casino, Gordon Ramsay Steak, is not only a great addition for the resort, but to Las Vegas as a whole. This is the very first Las Vegas restaurant by internationally-renowned Chef Gordon Ramsay, who is known not only for his Michelin Starred restaurants in Europe but also for his television shows such as “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Masterchef,” and “Kitchen Nightmares.” The décor inside pays homage to Chef Ramsay’s home; the city of London. It is bright, bold and very modern inside this steakhouse. The steaks are brought out and presented to you in a steak cart. You can order the traditional cuts like Filet Mignon or a Porterhouse, or you can order the succulent American Kobe such as the Rib Cap that is a house favorite by the General Manager and Executive Chef Kevin Hee. Cocktails are well balanced. The wine selection is top notch and you can look at all the information of your drinks on their informative iPads. Reservations are hard to come by so definitely plan for your dinner here by calling them ahead of time. It is definitely worth the wait and the price tag.
Next time you are planning to head over to Sin City, follow the Eiffel tower into Paris. Be seduced by its simplicity and all that it has to offer; from a hit Broadway Show to dinner by a superstar chef.
