Caesars Entertainment Explores Restaurants From Jennifer Lopez and “Deadliest Catch”

Caesars Entertainment, the casino giant that operates 10 resorts on or near the Las Vegas Strip, loves it some surveys.

A recent survey provides a gold mine of information about restaurant partnerships being explored by Caesars, including Jennifer Lopez and the reality series, “Deadly Catch.”

The first question mentions a potential new restaurant created by a celebrity or performer, and asks customers which celebrity’s dishes the restaurant should feature.

Just a random list of celebrities, right? Have you learned nothing from this blog?

If you’ve seen enough of these surveys, you know that while Caesars appears to be fishing, they’re actually leading survey-takers down a path. That path leads to Jennifer Lopez.

How do we know? Ponder this question: Which celebrity, out of all the celebrities listed, has a super successful residency at Planet Hollywood, a Caesars Entertainment resort?

Hey, we can make up leading questions, too.

Answer: Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer Lopez

We’re fairly sure Jennifer Lopez would spend about as much time cooking in her Las Vegas restaurant as Guy Fieri does in his.

While Lopez has no culinary training we know of, Caesars Entertainment has had a lot of success creating restaurants with folks like Gordon Ramsay, Guy Fieri and Giada De Laurentiis. Jennifer Lopez would seem a good fit for a restaurant offering, although we’d love to see what hottie Chrissy Teigen or golfer Phil Mickelson might bring to the table. Literally.

Next on the survey is an intriguing question about a buffet inspired by a TV show.

Just some random shows, right? Ah, now you’re getting it.

While this blog loves it some Pioneer Woman, Caesars is actually hoping our gaze lands upon “Deadliest Catch.”

How do we know?

You’re getting the hang of this. You should start a Las Vegas blog. The hours are awful, but the groupies.

That’s right, Caesars Entertainment is considering a buffet inspired by one of the best reality shows of all time, “Deadliest Catch.”

The answer to the question, of course, is “crab.”

Fun fact: The Rio’s buffet serves up 1,200 pounds of crab legs every day.

While we can’t know which resorts might be getting a Jennifer Lopez restaurant or a “Deadliest Catch” buffet, we figure it’s about time for a rebrand of the Spice Market Buffet at Planet Hollywood.

What conclusions do you draw from this survey? We’d love to hear your thoughts, so leave a comment.

    I think Jennifer Lopez had a restaurant before at a Las Vegas hotel. Think it was a steakhouse. Didn’t last too long. With the exception of celebrity chefs most celebrity restaurants are just paying to use the name. They don’t have much input into the operation which is probably a good thing.

      Perhaps you’re thinking of SHe by Morton’s. (Yes, it was capitalized that way.) It was a female-focused steakhouse created by Eva Longoria. It lasted about 2 years (2012-14) in Crystals at Aria.

      Not sure about culinary training, but Jennifer Lopez owned a Latin restaurant in Pasadena, CA. According to an internet search, it was open from 2002 to 2008.

    I don’t enjoy these restaurants anymore. They are a different take of the same foods all over and super pricey. I was in the Mirage the other day and was going to buy a sandwich at the deli by the sports book and they wanted over 20 for a single simple sandwich. In my opinion, ridiculous.

    1. Photoncounter

      People who pay for parking just so they can lose their rent money at 30 cents a spin is also ridiculous. Those are the ones begging at the player’s desk to be comped for a buffet or even a coffee and donut. I just don’t get the corporate greed of the strip anymore.

  3. RustyHammer

    Name it after any celebrity. It doesn’t matter. If you don’t have flatbread casserole you will eventually fail. Truth.

  4. W.B.

    Shouldn’t the “Deadliest Catch” themed restaurant serve 2 day old, room temperature sushi and sashimi?

    ‘Twould definitely be deadly, no?

  5. Kevin Rackley

    They clearly have the wrong entertainers associated with the wrong products. I would think that “all-you-can-eat J.Lo” would practically sell itself.

  6. Photoncounter

    If they were to open a buffet based on Deadliest Catch, along with the crab they’d have to feature cigarette butt soup or something similar. All those guys ever do on TV is smoke, light one right after another. One stroked out and died, at least one other has cardiac problems. It’s an undercurrent of the show so why not be a feature of the buffet?

    Stupid Corporation with a stupid survey will result in another stupid decision.
