Thanks to its striking monuments and imagery at center Strip, Paris Las Vegas will probably always be best known as a prominent product of its era, the themed casino boom of the 1990s. Tourist magnets Mon Ami Gabi and the Eiffel Tower Restaurant have defined its dining portfolio, though Gordon Ramsay made a significant impact with his first Strip project, an eponymous steakhouse in 2012.
Ten years later, Paris is about to be stacked with celebrity restaurants. It already has a scrumptious little morsel with Brioche by Guy Savoy, and the coming months will see the opening of Vanderpump à Paris from LA restaurateur and reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump, another Bobby’s Burgers outlet from Bobby Flay and the third Las Vegas Nobu restaurant from Nobu Matsuhisa.
And then there’s the Bedford, the first-ever restaurant concept from Martha Stewart, set for a spring opening at Paris. Designed by Stewart herself and inspired by the lifestyle icon’s country farmhouse in Westchester County, New York, the 194-seat restaurant will serve dinner and weekend brunch, along with special holiday menus throughout the year, and its arrival seems like the tipping point for this 23-year-old Strip property. Paris will be a very different place to eat and drink by this summer.
“Martha Stewart is one of the most celebrated voices in hospitality, and we are truly honored that she’s chosen Paris Las Vegas as the home for her very first restaurant,” Jason Gregorec, Paris senior vice president and general manager, said in a statement. “When we open the doors, the Bedford by Martha Stewart will be a dining experience you simply can’t get elsewhere.”
