Kitchen and Bar
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas
are few places in which people can actually feel relaxed in
Sin City, but Kerry Simon may have created a first for his
guests. The celebrity chef, who previously worked at Mercer
Kitchen in New York City and Prime at Bellagio, Las Vegas
has gone solo with a focus on fresh comfort food.
Kitchen & Bar aims to be a place to kick back and enjoy
the setting. "We wanted to create something similar to
our experiences that was just comfortable, fun and hip,"
says Elizabeth Blau, partner of the project.
menu features simple, comfort food, while Asian influences
can be seen in the tandoori salmon, Kerry's chicken curry
and bluefin tuna tartare. More familiar, home style items
include the prime rib, macaroni and cheese and even a recipe
for meatloaf from Kerry's mother. A diviersified dessert menu
includes an ice cream sampler, twice - baked banana bread,
ten - layer chocolate cake, and plain, old fashioned cookies
