In anticipation of Guy Fieri’s first Las Vegas restaurant, Guy Fieri’sVegas Kitchen & Bar at The Quad Resort & Casino, opening April 17, Fieri surprised guests by serving up his award-winning signature Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger to hundreds of excited fans.

Fieri arrived in style as he pulled up to The Quad in his classic red Camaro where he was greeted by fans and onlookers. Also on-hand to welcome Fieri was the marching band and cheerleaders from his alma mater,University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). They belted the UNLV fight song as well as a rendition of “Viva Las Vegas.” He was then greeted by Regional President and General Manager, Eileen Moore, and Regional Vice President and Assistant General Manager, Christian Stuart.

“There’s a new corner in Flavortown, and that’s The Quad Resort & Casino,” said Moore. Moore and Stuart presented Fieri with a proclamation from the City of Las Vegas and Mayor Carolyn Goodman, proclaiming April 4, 2014 Guy Fieri Day.

Fieri addressed the crowd and expressed his excitement of opening up his first Las Vegas restaurant, “It’s great to be back in Las Vegas,” exclaimed Fieri. “It has always been a dream of mine to open a restaurant here. It’s been a long road to get here, and this is the homecoming of homecomings. I promise you, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar is gonna rock the house!”

Set to open April 17, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar will offer guests a taste of Fieri’s signature cuisine, featuring bold flavors and unique twists on traditional dishes. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. for brunch, lunch, dinner and late night dining, the 200 seat restaurant will feature a delicious blend of casual foods including an extensive variety of burgers, wings, tacos, small bites and shareable food items.

The restaurant’s extensive drink menu will feature 16 craft beers, in addition to the 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.

The 6,500 square foot space will feature a large outdoor patio and dining area to seat 200 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.

This dynamic partnership is just another example of the new restaurant, bar and lounge projects that are currently re-shaping many Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts.
