Giada De Laurentiis to Open First Restaurant in Las Vegas

Related To:

You've seen her host her own Food Network series, including Giada at Home, and mentor budding talent on Food Network Star. She's an Emmy award winner, a six-time cookbook author and a mom. Now the Italian-born Giada De Laurentiis can add one more accomplishment to her long list of accolades: restaurant owner. After years of speculation regarding if and when this Food Network superstar would launch her very own eatery, Giada announced yesterday that she's set to open her premiere restaurant in Las Vegas. "Ever since I was a little girl hanging out at my grandfather's restaurant, I've dreamed of having a restaurant of my own," Giada said. "Now, I couldn't be more excited about working with Gansevoort Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment to turn this dream into a delicious reality."

Perched high above the glamour of the shining Sin City, Giada's restaurant will take over the second floor of the not-yet-opened Gansevoort Las Vegas and offer outdoor dining, plus striking views of the Las Vegas Strip. The menu, of course, will keep with the style of classic yet innovative Italian fare fans have become familiar with on Giada's shows and in her cookbooks; freshly baked breads, antipasto, signature pastas, flatbreads and custom desserts are just a few of the specialties she's promised to unveil at her sure-to-be-hot spot when it opens early next year.

In true Giada fashion, her restaurant's design will feature a one-of-a-kind mix of California-cool plus traditional Italian comfort, thanks to the open-concept kitchen and posh yet plush seating. Luckily for Giada's hungry fans, her expansive restaurant will welcome nearly 300 guests for lunch and dinner, so everyone will be able to experience the inviting atmosphere and menu firsthand.
