Harrah’s Resort SoCal Opens Gordon Ramsay’s First HELL’S KITCHEN in California

World famous chef Gordon Ramsay is expanding his restaurant empire with the help of a Southern California casino. Harrah’s Resort SoCal in north San Diego County, is now the home of a Gordon Ramsay HELL’S KITCHEN restaurant.

It is the third restaurant Ramsay has opened under the HELL’S KITCHEN brand in the US. The British chef and TV personality opened similar restaurants in two other casino resorts in the US. One is at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and another is in South Lake Tahoe at the Harveys Lake Tahoe Hotel.

The restaurant’s design and menu, spotlighted with the iconic red and blue flames, is a direct reflection of the FOX network’s culinary competition series of the same name.
