3595 Las Vegas Blvd. South
Emmy Award-winning celebrity chef and New York Times best-selling author Giada De Laurentiis will open her first-ever restaurant in May 2014 at The Cromwell, a new $185 million Las Vegas boutique hotel operated by Caesars Entertainment. Located on the bustling corner of one of the city’s most energetic intersections, her self-titled restaurant, GIADA, will be the cornerstone of the first and only stand-alone boutique hotel on the famed Strip.
About the Restaurtant
De Laurentiis’ self-titled restaurant, GIADA, will greet guests with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, al fresco dining and a signature antipasto bar, a first for Italian eateries on the Strip. Located on the second story, GIADA can accommodate 260 guests and encompasses three dining experiences – a dining room, a lounge and a terrace. Areas of the restaurant will feature automatic retractable windows – a first for the Las Vegas Strip – boasting prime views of the Bellagio fountains, Caesars Palace and Bally’s Grand Bazaar Shops.
As guests enter the restaurant, intoxicating aromas of the fresh baking bread will fill the space and a beautiful exhibition kitchen will allow guests the opportunity to watch chefs prepare specialty pastas by hand, slice fresh Italian meats and bake beautiful flatbreads and desserts.
The restaurant will offer a robust wine list artfully crafted from new and old world wines as well as a beautiful wine display. Signature cocktails will be offered with a fresh new twist on the standard ingredients. GIADA will be open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a private dining room space will be available for larger parties.
About the Design
De Laurentiis will be very involved in all areas of the restaurant, from the overall design, to the finishing touches. Everything, from the china, to glassware, to the silverware selections, will be hand-selected by Giada and her team. When guests arrive, De Laurentiis wants guests to feel like they’re family, entering her home; like she’s giving them each a welcoming hug. The design will be warm and soft with touches of femininity. Posh living-room style furniture will offer an inviting appeal as modernly designed lighting illuminates the heavily wooded space. Abstract décor and shelf accessories line the walls providing a residential feel.
About the Menu
GIADA will embrace De Laurentiis’ Roman heritage, mirroring her passion for Italian cooking with vibrant, Californian influences. GIADA will utilize the freshest ingredients to create a new take on the traditional Italian cuisine, while staying true to classic favorites. Signature dishes include Lemon Spaghetti, Eggplant Rollatini, Marsala Herb Chicken Meatballs and Lemon Ricotta Cookies.
