EATING LAS VEGAS: Hell’s Kitchen ain’t a bad place to beef…

Now, I’m not big on celebrity chef restaurants — unless that chef’s name is Guy Fieri. But Gordon Ramsay pretty much owns the Vegas Strip, what with Gordon Ramsay Burger, Gordon Ramsay Steak, Gordon Ramsay’s British Pub, Gordon Ramsay’s Fish n Chips — and his OG joint, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen. This place is so hot, I could only get a table at 11 am on a Sunday… So I guess I can pull myself away from football for an hour or two and eat here?

Gordon’s signature dish is the Beef Wellington, which is served medium rare on a bed of mashed potatoes with brown gravy. It’s no Beef Short Rib Wellington at BlueBlood, but it was still probably the best lunch I had in Vegas.

When it comes to dessert, the sticky toffee pudding is almost as famous as the Beef Wellington. Warm, soft and not too rich, it goes great with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Washed it all down with a North Coast Scrimshaw Pilsner from California. This old-school, Euro-style pils was equal parts hoppy and refreshing. Oh, and I was in and out of there in less than 40 minutes, so I barely missed a quarter of the NFL action!!!
