Information about Simon Kitchen & Bar - CLOSED

Celebrity chef Kerry Simon's eatery, which he opened with trail-blazing restaurant industry maverick Elizabeth Blau at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, has given a hip, new edge to the Las Vegas dining scene.

The celeb-packed Simon Kitchen and Bar has already attracted a constellation of stars, both rock and silver screen, including Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney (who had post-concert parties there); David Bowie, Bruce Willis, Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton, and George Clooney, to name just a few.

THIS VENUE IS NOW CLOSED - SIMON HAS RELOCATED TO PLAMS PLACE... PLEASE SEE NEW LISTING

Critical response to the food has already climbed to the top of the charts. Part of the appeal is chef Simon, who the national press has been following around for years due to his sassy cuisine, celebrity following, and boyish good looks (starlets frequently appear on his arm, which has long been a magnet for tabloid fodder). At Simon Kitchen, the chef's playful interpretation of Signature American cuisine ranges from truffled mashed potatoes to "topless" apple pie and a whimsical cotton candy dessert. The bar scene is cool at this people-watching, off-Strip hot spot nestled in the Hard Rock Hotel.

Chef Kerry Simon's sensual dishes are beautifully realized fantasies that attract celebs, serious foodies and people who just want to have a great meal served in a casual oasis overlooking the pool at Hard Rock. Chef Simon's clever flavor and texture combinations make your taste buds really sing, and his presentations are often whimsical.

Simon Kitchen is the brainchild of savvy restaurant consultant Elizabeth Blau, who is considered a major taste-maker in Las Vegas, having recruited countless celebrity chefs for new restaurants. For the opening of Bellagio, she persuaded a constellation of star chefs to come to a city known more for its inexpensive buffets than for fine dining, thus charting a new course for five-star dining in Las Vegas.

Blau and Simon have successfully achieved their vision of a restaurant with multi-sensory appeal, from the appealing cuisine with sophisticated-yet-playful combinations to the Yabu Pushelberg-designed dining room with its open kitchen and sunny patio. We can expect this winning culinary team to be soaring high in the desert for years to come.

The striking Blau, who was formerly a model, can be seen at the restaurant (when she isn't traveling), and her presence is part of the allure. The decor is stylishly understated. The mood is set upon entering the dining room. Light streams in through breezy wood-slatted panels and bronzed panels of ancient screens that once were used to print beautiful kimono designs. The backdrop is a cracked clay wall in rich azure. Posed hostesses outfitted in sleek Catherine Malandrino dresses show guests to their tables. Friendly servers in long black leather aprons offer recommendations and are adept at answering menu questions. There are three private dining rooms and a patio, where every seat is a good one.

There's a thriving, late-night bar scene and international bottled beers plus creative cocktails. A number of chef Simon's dishes are available for grazing at the bar, including the shellfish platter, wood-roasted pizzas, and the New York strip steak.
