10. Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar

Guy Fieri is perhaps best known for his outrageous Food Network programming, which sees the frost-tipped connoisseur of American food travel the nation to sample the biggest and best meals around. In his Las Vegas restaurant at Caesar’s, you can sample 16 craft beers and a variety of burgers, tacos, wings and more.

At the MGM in Vegas, you can sample some of Choi’s best dishes in the adorably named Best Friend. With prices to appeal to those who might’ve just hit the slots a little too hard, it’s definitely a good spot for a tasty pick-me-up.

8. Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak

Tom Colicchio cuts quite a commanding figure as the head judge of Top Chef, but all he cuts at Heritage Steak is high-quality beef. Located in Las Vegas’ Mirage, one of the most famous American land-based casinos, visitors can expect a lively open kitchen and a wide variety of sumptuous steaks.

7. Robert Irvine’s Public House

The first of the British famous chefs in Las Vegas to grace our list is Robert Irvine, a regular feature on the Food Network thanks to shows like Dinner: Impossible and Worst Cooks in America. Irvine’s Public House at the Tropicana brings the comfort of the classic British pub to the strip, serving simple bar favorites like burgers, ribs and sandwiches at very reasonable prices.

6. Kimberly Ann Ryan – Yardbird

Shaking this list up a bit, Hell’s Kitchen winner Kimberly Ann Ryan didn’t found the Yardbird Southern Table and Bar, but took over as head chef following her reality TV win. Nowadays you’re likely to find her fixing up delicious Southern fare like fried chicken, shrimp n’ grits and streak. For authentic Southern flavor in the heart of the city, you can’t go wrong here.

5. Bazaar Meat by José Andrés

Spanish-American chef, José Andrés, is often credited as the man who brought tapas to America. Bazaar Meat is one of two restaurants in Las Vegas operated by the talented small-plates chef, and is located in the Sahara. Named the ‘Best Restaurant in Nevada’ by Business Insider, you can’t afford to miss this meaty menu geared towards sharing.

4. CUT – Wolfgang Puck

Andrés isn’t the only one with multiple restaurants across the city. Austrian chef, Wolfgang Puck, has given his name to no fewer than three sterling establishments. Though many will know him as a guest judge on popular food shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef, CUT shows off Puck’s talents in all their glory. Swing by for the freshest and most decadent seafood – but only if you’ve hit the jackpot. And thanks to this being in Sin City, you can dream of winning the jackpot at one of our great online slots casinos while you wait for your food.

3. Mesa Grill – Bobby Flay

The second entry from Caesar’s Palace in this run-down of celebrity chef restaurants Las Vegas is Mesa Grill, the colorful eatery is headed up by Food Network veteran Bobby Flay. Flay has perhaps the most Food Network credits to his name of all the chefs in this list, and Mesa Grill brings his passion for BBQ from the screen to the public. Think Mexican classics and perfectly-grilled meats.

2. Buddy V’s Ristorante

You might know Buddy Valastro as Cake Boss and the face of Carlo’s Bakery in New Jersey. However, there’s more to the famous confectioner’s abilities than just ground-breaking cakes, and at Buddy V’s Ristorante you can sample the TV personality’s own brand of Italian-American cooking. Naturally, it is to be found at the Venetian.

1. Gordon Ramsay – Steak

Topping off our list is the big daddy of celebrity chefs, the surly and bad-mouthed Gordon Ramsay. Ramsay can lay claim to as many as five Las Vegas restaurants, all of which are worth visiting. We chose Steak for its simplicity and value for money. Swing by to sample wagyu beef sliders and Ramsay’s signature Beef Wellington for a refreshingly low fee – meaning you can keep you big bills for the betting tables.
