Famously Delicious: The Best Celebrity Chef Restaurants in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is known for many things. Whether it’s an eclectic collection of musical residencies and shows by Cirque du Soleil, a premier gaming and sports betting system, year-round pools, three-foot-tall frozen cocktails, and some of the best shopping anywhere in the world, you’d be hard pressed to outdo Vegas. 

Additionally, the Las Vegas dining scene has a particularly magical culinary ethos. Even in a land-locked desert city, we have access to some of the freshest seafood and vegetable products available, to some of the rarest ingredients and to the most globally celebrated, decadent meals money can buy. 

So how do we do it? It’s Vegas, baby. It’s primarily the basics of supply and demand, but what helps propel that idea? 

Enter the celebrity chef.

Following is our list of the best and most exciting celebrity chef restaurants in Las Vegas, paired with a short history of the chef’s origins and rise to fame.

Robuchon and L’Atelier – Joël Robuchon

Robuchon, one of the original celebrity chefs, wasn’t famous because he was on your regular Saturday morning TV programming. He also didn’t rise to fame because he added unholy amounts of butter to his dishes—though some may argue his Pommes Puree qualifies here—or because he had a fun culinary catchphrase.

Instead, Robuchon, the world’s most Michelin-decorated chef, was famous for his vision, meticulous attention to detail and mentorship.

A teacher, classically trained explorer, modernist pioneer and a father figure to many chefs, Robuchon earned his celebrity the old-fashioned way, without social media. He was simply that good, and the world knows it.

A classically trained Japanese sushi and kaiseki chef, Morimoto sold his first restaurant in 1985 to travel to the United States to explore the Western cooking styles and techniques influencing much of his food. Working in various restaurants in and around New York, including Nobu, further cemented his love for fusion cuisines. First showing up with dubbing and subtitles on American televisions in 1998, Morimoto was one of the original titleholders on the Japanese-language television show Iron Chef that spawned a US version in 1999.

The rest, they say, is history. Morimoto has opened award-winning restaurants worldwide, including the Michelin-starred Morimoto XEX in Tokyo. The Iron Chef series spawned additional related TV shows, and Morimoto is a regular mentor and judge on shows across the culinary TV universe.
