The opening of this Gordon Ramsay HELL'S KITCHEN will mark the first for Southern California, the third in the country, and the largest outpost to date with 332 seats for guests. In line with the legendary HELL'S KITCHEN concept, the restaurant design and menu elements will be inspired and executed by the long-running FOX culinary competition series of the same name. The restaurant space will feature three areas for guests to experience HELL'S KITCHEN, including an elevated bar, full-service restaurant and elegant lounge.

"HELL'S KITCHEN at Harrah's Resort SoCal represents one of our most exciting projects to date," said Chairman Bo Mazzetti of the Rincon Tribe. "It's an exciting moment to be able to bring such a well-known, high-energy concept to the resort and it's perfectly in line with our continued commitment to keeping our guests excited, energized and full of options, while visiting us here at our resort," he said. "We welcome Gordon Ramsay to the Harrah's SoCal/Rincon family—we know HELL'S KITCHEN will bring an unmatched 'Funner' experience to our guests, family and friends, beginning early 2022."

Construction on HELL'S KITCHEN will begin at Harrah's Resort Southern California this summer. Currently, HELL'S KITCHEN operates in Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Caesars Bluewaters Dubai and Harveys Lake Tahoe, all of which were met with critical acclaim and sought-after reservation lists, with cuisine derived from Chef Ramsay's signature dishes and challenges featured on the show, including Pan Seared Scallops, Lobster Risotto, Beef Wellington, Crispy Skin Salmon and Sticky Toffee Pudding.

"We are extremely excited to welcome Chef Gordon Ramsay's contagious energy and talent along with a new HELL'S KITCHEN restaurant to Harrah's Resort Southern California," said Robert Livingston, senior vice president and general manager. "Chef Ramsay's reputation for delivering world-class cuisine, alongside his notoriously fearless personality, creates a thrilling dining experience that perfectly complements what a Funner experience is all about."

The new restaurant is a partnership between Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment, Inc. 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, Bernie Schaeffer and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers. HELL'S KITCHEN airs in 41 countries around the globe.
