Martha Stewart Is Opening a Restaurant in Las Vegas
Martha Stewart is coming to Vegas! And as much as we'd love for it to be a musical residency with Martha singing covers, sharing stories, and inviting Snoop Dogg for the occasional rap verse, instead, we'll be getting a Martha Stewart restaurant at the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino. Hey, Snoop can still stop by there, too!
The previously-rumored restaurant was confirmed by Eater Las Vegas, citing paperwork for a construction permit that names the forthcoming venue as simply the "Martha Stewart Restaurant." The hotel will apparently "selectively" demolish part of the existing building to make room for the new space which follows the recent closure of Steve Martorano's South Philadelphia-inspired eatery Martorano's.
Stewart will have plenty of celebrity company at Paris Las Vegas. The Caesars Entertainment-owned casino which first opened back in 1999 currently has two name-dropping dining options: Brioche by Guy Savoy and Gordon Ramsay Steak. Then, this winter, Lisa Vanderpump is reportedly slated to open her new cocktail bar with bites, Vanderpump à Paris.
Compared to those celebs, Stewart is a relative newbie to the restauranteur game. Eater explains that the mogul's previous attempt at a branded eatery was the Martha Stewart Café in New York — housed in the same building as her media empire — that closed in 2019.
But if anyone can bounce back with a successful restaurant, it's Martha, who's proven a willingness to dabble in nearly everything: from frozen food to wine, from cookbooks to cannabis — and not to mention television, television, television!
Despite the exposed paperwork, Eater says that Caesars Entertainment has previously passed on confirming whether the restaurant is in the works. As such, we'll have to wait for an official announcement before finding out further details like an opening date or what kind of cuisine the restaurant plans to serve. However, last month at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Stewart did share her tips with us on how to bake the perfect pie, so there's some fresh Martha intel to tide you over in the meantime.
