Central 24/7 By Michel Richard to Open at Caesars
Caesars Palace has announced that James Beard Award-winning (it’s a big deal) Chef Michel Richard will bring a version of his popular Washington D.C. restaurant to Las Vegas.
Chef Michel Richard describes the planned menu at Central 24/7 as, “American favorites with a French accent.” The menu will feature items such as Richard’s popular burger, 72-hour short ribs, fried chicken, razor clam chowder and fresh oysters.
Central 24/7 will offer 24-hour dining in a 9,600-square-foot restaurant that will include an outdoor patio terrace. The restaurant will also feature a large lounge, complete with full bar. Now, do we have your attention?
The French-born Chef Richard has created a number of award-winning restaurants. He formerly owned Citrus in Los Angeles and currently owns Citronelle and Central (pronounced sen-TRAL), both successful restaurants in Washington, D.C. The chef also has a McLean, Virginia restaurant, Michel, that opened in 2010 inside the town’s Ritz-Carlton.
We can’t wait to see (and taste) what the chef has in store! The traditional Vegas hotel coffee shop is about to get Francophiled. Which we’re fairly sure isn’t a real word. But you know what we mean.
