Central at Caesars Named Best New Vegas Restaurant
When you’re up for “Best New Restaurant” at a Las Vegas hotel, it’s a crowded field with plenty of competition. Las Vegas hotels are home to some of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants, after all.
Central by Michel Richard at Caesars Palace has prevailed, however, in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s just-announced “Best of Las Vegas” awards.
Central was an editorial staff pick for “Best New Restaurant (2011)” among restaurants located inside a hotel. Oscar’s at The Plaza downtown was the readers’ winner. Way to go, Hizzoner!
How’d Central win the Review-Journal’s heart? By serving up dishes that are creative and satisfying and prepared to meet exacting standards, that’s how.
The “Best of Vegas” awards are a combination of reader and newspaper staff selections.
The “Best of Vegas” awards highlight the most outstanding (and occasionally least) Vegas hotels, restaurants, shows, attractions and nightclubs.

Chef Richard trivia: The chef was raised in Champagne. Which is probably not great for one’s liver, but this blog doesn’t judge.
Central is unique in that it’s one of the rare fine dining restaurants on the Strip that’s open 24/7. See all the restaurant’s menu offerings here.
Also of interest: Central was also named one of the “Top 10 New Restaurants in the U.S.” by Gayot.com. When it rains, it pours! See the complete list.
