Party Pics – A Taste of Coronado

This year’s “Taste of Coronado”, on Wednesday, October 10, was another great success.

This event was organized by the Coronado Junior Women’s Club to benefit local nonprofits, including Monarch School of San Diego, A Walk On Water, and Coronado Junior Woman’s Club.

Coronado’s most popular restaurants served up a plethora of fantastic offerings for attendees to enjoy. This 4 hour experience was the perfect way to spend a fall evening with friends and family.

Visitors could make their way down Orange Avenue, or start at the Ferry Landing, to enjoy all that Coronado offers. When your feet got tired they just hopped on the complimentary trolley to go to the other side of town.

Party Pics: World’s First Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN Restaurant Marks Official Grand Opening at Caesars Palace Las Vegas

Multi-Michelin star chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay, joined by the finalists of Season 17 HELL’S KITCHEN All-Stars and famous faces from the sports and entertainment world, celebrated the official grand opening of the first-ever Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN restaurant at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Since its soft opening in early January, the highly-anticipated restaurant has already received reservations for nearly 25,000 guests. Reservations are available for lunch and dinner.

Designed to be an experiential and immersive destination restaurant, guests at Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN will feel transported to the studio set of the globally popular FOX television show. The inspiration from the hit show is evident from the signature fiery pitchfork – direct from the set of the popular TV show – that marks the entryway, to the life-size video screen of Chef Ramsay that greets guests upon arrival, to the chef uniforms and menu items. The winner of current Season 17 of HELL’S KITCHEN All-Stars will be named Head Chef and have portrait hung with the other previous champions on the winner’s wall.

“We responded to fans of the show who were hungry for a real-world HELL’S KITCHEN restaurant for some time – pun intended,” said Ramsay. “What we didn’t fully realize was just how enthusiastic the response would be. We are thrilled with the reservations and interest since announcing our opening, and excited to welcome guests to experience the best of HELL’S KITCHEN – great food, and great cocktails.”

Masterfully designed by Jeffrey Beers International, the first-of-its-kind restaurant boasts design features that are engaging to all senses and are a nod to both the red and blue teams featured on the show. The dynamic and bustling kitchen is the centerpiece of this unique eatery, with mosaic tiles framing the open space artfully, allowing guests to appreciate from every seat in the house. Chefs and cooks in the kitchen will be in the exact uniforms from the show – red and blue jackets with coordinating bandanas. To further bring the electric atmosphere of the studio into the dining room, additional key elements of the show are infused in the design, such as fire and heat and custom designed lighting that combine brass rods with pitchfork features and runs across the high ceilings. HELL’S KITCHEN’s iconic “H” and pitchfork symbols are cleverly featured throughout the custom-designed, laser-cut screen partitions and soft charcoal and ash-hued wallcovering.

With floor-to-ceiling glass windows facing the famous Las Vegas Strip and Caesars Palace’s iconic fountains, Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN seats nearly 300 guests and features indoor and Strip-adjacent dining. Currently offering lunch and dinner daily, the eatery also boasts a spirited bar menu.

“Creating unique and world class-dining experiences is one-way Caesars Entertainment is strengthening the integrated resort concept,” said Mark Frissora President and CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “A key element of this is building strong partnerships and Gordon is not only a great partner but also one of the biggest talents in culinary.”

Several of the most successful signature menu items and recipes featured on the television show can now be experienced during lunch and dinner including Pan Seared Scallops, Lobster Risotto, Beef Wellington, Truffle Arancini, Brick Pressed Chicken and Crispy Skin Salmon. Special menu items direct from the show will be added as new episodes air.

To perfectly complement the cuisine or to simply enjoy at the restaurant’s sprawling bar, the cocktails at HELL’S KITCHEN are not to be missed. The signature creations include the gin-based Notes from Gordon, garnished with a scroll printed with a surprise note from Gordon Ramsay; the citrus and rosemary laden Chef’s Stew, served bubbling and steaming from dry ice; and the rye-based Smoke on the Blvd, which arrives in a cherry-wood smoke-filled glass cabinet. The restaurant also boasts an expertly curated wine list with over 20 wines offered by the glass. The beer list is also notable with more than 30 options, and includes an exclusive HELL’S KITCHEN Special Brew IPA from Stone Brewing.

“With Gordon and his team, we created a unique dining experience based on one of the most popular shows on television. I’m very proud of what we have achieved. The room has been transformed and feels just like the set of Hell’s Kitchen, and the food and service is worthy of the Gordon Ramsay,” said Gary Selesner Regional President Caesars Palace. “The response from guests so far has been very gratifying. They are delighted with the menu and love the concept. It looks like we have another big hit on our hands. I can’t wait for everyone to try it.”

Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN marks Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant and extends his successful partnership with Caesars Entertainment to seven eateries with more to come. The new restaurant is a partnership between Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment in conjunction with ITV America. HELL’S KITCHEN airs in the U.S. on FOX and is produced by ITV Entertainment in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Kenny Rosen, David Eilenberg and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers. HELL’S KITCHEN airs in 41 countries around the globe.

Chocolate Pizzas from Adoro Lei

Giacamo Pizza 2

New York City’s Adoro Lei, known for its fresh, sexy, and fun take on pizza, recently announced a new savory and sweet pizza created in conjunction with neighbor and prominent Master Chocolatier, Jacques Torres.

Starting September 8, diners at Adoro Lei can savor the “Giacamo,” a unique pie incorporating Torres’ famed cocoa powder into Adoro Lei’s authentically-formed crust. This Neapolitan-style pizza is topped with two cheeses, caramelized onions, fig puree, bacon and ground Jacques Torres Chocolate cocoa nibs for an experience that plays with the senses.

“Chef Mario struck just the right balance by blending my cocoa powder into an expertly made crust and then topping the pizza with well-paired ingredients including Adoro Lei’s homemade mozzarella,” explains Chef Jacques Torres. “My first reaction when tasting it was, ‘Delicious!’   No doubt our fellow neighbors in Hudson Square, and all of New York City, will love this combination.”

Harriette Pizza

The second new Adoro Lei offering named the “Henriette,” is a sweet dessert pizza with Jacques Torres Chocolate’s famous chocolate ice cream, fresh cream, berries and chocolate drizzle on top a fried, cocoa Zeppole.

“These pizzas are an exciting extension to the innovative offerings we have at Adoro Lei. Chef Mario Gentile continues to elevate the concept of pizza, this time through quality products crafted by confectionary visionary, Jacques Torres,” says Michael DiBugnara, creative director for Adoro Lei.

Opened in February 2015, Adoro Lei is buzzing. With a string of celebrity sightings, spectacular reviews, and their upscale take on Italian classics, Adoro Lei is bringing new flavor to a hidden gem of Manhattan neighborhoods.

“As Hudson Square continues to grow and change, it’s important for local business to join talents and support one another,” said DiBugnara who is also a board member of the Hudson Square Connection.

Meaning I adore her in Italian, Adoro Lei loves showing adoration for its patrons. The ambience of the restaurant is polished and lively with a DJ booth in the center. Lead by Executive Chef Mario Gentile, Adoro Lei is making a splash in the New York City restaurant scene for its dedication to fresh ingredients, respect for traditional Italian cuisine and love for its customers. Chef Mario has been trained internationally by Michelin-star chefs and owns a restaurant of his own.

Both the “Giacamo,” and “Henriette” pizzas are available at Adoro Lei today along with Jacques Torres Chocolate’s world famous Blood Orange Sorbet.

About Adoro Lei
Adoro Lei is bringing New York City an elevated Italian dining experience, where gracious hospitality and delicious food meet fun music and good times. Through its focus on fresh ingredients made in-house daily, Adoro Lei is expanding its mission of unabated adoration to its patrons; living up to its name which means “I adore her” in Italian. Located in Manhattan’s Hudson Square neighborhood, the restaurant opened its doors in February 2015 with delectable creations from executive chef Mario Gentile, refreshing cocktails by renowned mixologist Elayne Duff, and walls boasting the emotive art of Dessie Jackson. Guests are embraced by a unique culinary experience at a truly upscale “pizza party” with pies name for both famous and infamous Renaissance era figures.
