In recent years, a handful of renowned chefs have risen to rock-star like status in the culinary world. It’s not surprising that some of them have capitalized on their caché to open popular eateries along the Las Vegas strip. Here are 10 celebrity chefs with Vegas restaurants you might want to chow down in next time you’re in Sin City.
1. Wolfgang Puck
Wolfgang Puck was one of the first chefs to become a household name. He catered to Hollywood stars at the annual Academy Awards Governors Ball for decades, and has since become a star himself. His signature California cuisine restaurant, Spago, was the “it” spot on the Sunset Strip back in the 1980s. He opened a Vegas location in 1992 in the Ceasar’s Palace Forum Shops. Its popularity paved the way for other celebrity chefs to open restaurants along Las Vegas Boulevard and helped put the spotlight on culinary personalities. Puck now has 20 restaurants in his food empire. Six of these are in Las Vegas, including Postrio, CUT and Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill.
