On Friday, June 18, Amalfi by Bobby Flay at Caesars Palace hosted its highly-anticipated grand opening event, welcoming guests to the Amalfi Coast-inspired destination.
To commemorate the occasion, award-winning chef Bobby Flay was joined by Sean McBurney, Regional President of Caesars Entertainment, as well as Caesars’ CEO Tom Reeg and President and COO Anthony Carano, and business partner Laurence Kretchmer as they toasted with Amalfi Spritzes to the opening of the latest culinary destination.
The event began with remarks from McBurney and Flay, followed by a kabuki drop unveiling the stunning golden-arched front entrance, with a musical performance and toast concluding the moment. In addition to marking the occasion inside the casino, Caesars Palace’s front fountains reflected the celebratory spirit with an Amalfi takeover, as well as the restaurant’s logo brightly projected on the side of the iconic resort.
“Opening Amalfi at Caesars Palace has allowed me to showcase my passion for the Amalfi Coast and the fresh flavors the region is known for,” said Flay.
“Our team has created an incredible experience that brings everything I love about the Amalfi Coast to the Las Vegas Strip, from the various seating areas to the coastal cocktails, to the fresh fish market to all the seasonal flavors we are showcasing on the menu. We have been blown away by the guests’ response already, making me incredibly proud and excited for all that lies ahead.”
Amalfi brings Flay’s admiration for Mediterranean cuisine to life through its rustic elegance and bold, fresh menu.
