LAS VEGAS, May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Caesars Entertainment today announced the company is expanding its relationship with chef, restaurateur, New York Times best-selling author and Emmy award-winning television host, Guy Fieri. On the heels of the opening of Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The Quad Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Fieri is now set to launch three new concepts with the gaming-hospitality company in Atlantic City, Baltimore and Laughlin, Nevada.
"Guy's restaurants and menus are innovative, fun and his guests enjoy exceptional service combined with an entertaining experience. His style of hospitality could not be a better fit for the desires of our guests," said Tom Jenkin, Caesars Entertainment Global President of Destination Markets. "Guy's restaurant with us in Las Vegas has received rave reviews and we're thrilled to extend our partnership with him so that our guests across the country can enjoy his cuisine."
The three new restaurants, all slated to open later this year, will be located at Bally's Atlantic City, Horseshoe Baltimore and Harrah's Laughlin. Each concept will be unique and the menu adapted to highlight a regional focus. Fieri's Bally's Atlantic City location will offer a new unique twist on the classic steakhouse while Horseshoe Baltimore and Harrah's Laughlin will feature some of Guy's most popular dishes along with regional favorites.
"It is an honor to play with a championship team," said Fieri. "Getting the opportunity to open one restaurant with Caesars was great, but opening three more, in the same year, is amazing!"
