Caesars Palace announced today James Beard award-winning Chef Michel Richard will bring a version of his popular Washington D.C restaurant to Las Vegas. Central 24/7 by Michel Richard is scheduled to open in late summer of 2011 and will occupy the current Augustus Cafe space adjacent to the iconic Caesars Palace hotel lobby. Central 24/7 will offer a 24-hour dining experience daily highlighting breakfast, lunch and dinner selections. The 9,600 square-foot restaurant will seat approximately 300 guests in total including an outdoor patio terrace. The restaurant also will feature a large lounge complete with full bar including several beers on tap and a specialty cocktail menu.
“The people who visit Las Vegas are interested in fun and good food around-the-clock. That is exactly what we will give them with Central 24/7 – American favorites with a French accent,” said Michel Richard. “I am thrilled to create this marriage with Caesars Palace, one of the most iconic resorts on the Las Vegas Strip.”
The menu will feature many Central signature items such as Richard’s celebrated burger, 72-hour short ribs, fried chicken, razor clam chowder, and fresh oysters. The Caesars Palace location also will offer many new selections and will maintain the Richard style of light and fresh with witty presentation.
“We are delighted that such a talented and beloved chef as Michel Richard will be joining the inspiring collection of Caesars Palace chefs,” said Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. “With the opening of Central 24/7 the standard 24-hour cafe will be elevated to new heights. This new dynamic dining experience will offer Richard’s flare for delicious cuisine in a lively yet sophisticated setting.”
