We love a juicy rumor! We hear Caesars Palace is going to have a Bazaar Meat restaurant from award-winning chef Jose Andres.
As this hasn’t been officially announced, we don’t know what this means for the existing north Strip location, inside The Casino That Shall Not Be Named Because We’re Not Giving Those Asshats Any Publicity.
Snagging a Bazaar Meat would be a big get for Caesars Palace.
This news comes on the heels of another steakhouse rumor from Las Vegas food critic John Curtas. The well-connected Curtas says Caesars Palace will be getting a Peter Luger Steak House, and also says the Bazaar Meat rumor has teeth.
While it’s not unprecedented for a casino to have two steakhouses (Golden Nugget has Vic & Anthony’s and Saltgrass), it seems highly unlikely Caesars would have three, so that means our beloved Old Homestead’s days could be numbered.
Bazaar Meat is highly regarded, and chef Jose Andres is renowned not only as a chef, but also as a philanthropist.
The chef’s World Central Kitchen has served 36 million meals to those in need.
We’d love to see Jose Andres expand his presence in Las Vegas, especially in a high profile resort like Caesars Palace.
Bazaar Meat isn’t just a steakhouse, it’s an experience, and one deserving of a more visible, successful location.
