Restaurateur, Chef, Author and TV host Guy Fieri expects to open his first Las Vegas restaurant in late 2013 at the entrance of The Quad Resort & Casino. Located in the heart of the famous Las Vegas Strip, the 7,000 sq. foot restaurant will be a new restaurant concept from Fieri developed as part of The LINQ, Caesars Entertainment’s $500 million dining, retail and entertainment development next to The Quad.
“This is a true homecoming for me,” said Guy Fieri, a University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) alumnus having graduated in 1990 with a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management. “I remember the beginning of the food revolution in Las Vegas, in the early 90’s as a college student, and now I am finally opening my very own restaurant right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. I am stoked.”
Fieri’s restaurant featuring a large outdoor patio and dining area will become one of the Las Vegas Strip’s main culinary attractions, adjacent to the popular Carnival Court and The Quad’s main entrance. The Quad is undergoing a noticeable transformation that will bring several improvements to the resort, including an enhanced casino floor and exterior renovations. Fieri’s restaurant is also a part of The LINQ, which will serve as home to the world’s tallest observation wheel, the 550-foot Las Vegas High Roller.
“Food is a very important piece of the redevelopment of the center Strip and The Quad Resort & Casino,” said Rick Mazer, Regional President of Caesars Entertainment Corp. “Guy’s energy is infectious, combined with his culinary talents and strong TV presence, guests are sure to be entertained.”
“I’m looking forward to guests, tourists and locals, experiencing my high-energy yet comfortable dining experience fit for all ages and fans of great food and great entertainment,” said Fieri.
