One of many Greatest Las Vegas Eating places of 2022 Is Opening 12 Miles Off the Strip

For somebody who began as a dishwasher again in 1989 in New Jersey, chef Rob Moore has come a great distance each actually and figuratively. He first arrived in Las Vegas in 2004 and has been the pressure behind culinary impresario Jean-Georges Vongerichten's tony steakhouses Prime at Bellagio and his eponymous steakhouse at Aria for the previous 15 years. Throughout his tenure each of those establishments have been lauded as a few of the best possible in a metropolis with extra high-end marbled beef emporiums than maybe anyplace on the planet. So when Moore quietly stepped away from Prime late final 12 months, eyebrows have been raised.

What wasn't anticipated nonetheless was Prime's gregarious entrance of home director and normal supervisor David Oseas, alongside Moore's mentee and sous from Prime, Andy Gomez, partnering with him to open Rosa Ristorante 12 miles off the Las Vegas strip within the southeastern suburb of Henderson. 

For Moore, it's "about extra than simply doing nice steaks, I actually needed to create a neighborhood Italian spot."

Whereas Moore humbly states, "individuals know me for my steaks," his work helped Prime have "its finest 12 months in its [24-year] historical past in 2021 and do $25 million in income" in accordance with Oseas. So when this "neighborhood" eatery debuts in mid-April, it might really be one in all Las Vegas' greatest restaurant openings of the 12 months.

And whereas Martha Stewart, cronut creator Dominique Ansel, and Instagram darling Salt Bae are all opening this 12 months on the Vegas strip, none have the legions of followers that Moore and firm have developed through the years. "At Prime, individuals have been coming again yearly for many years, and a few dine there three out of 4 nights of their journey" Oseas mentioned. "With Rosa, we need to have the identical familiarity, service-focus, and consistency."

Translation: Count on an old-school meets new-school Vegas vibe in a room full of native Vegas energy gamers and visiting excessive rollers searching for a mafioso-like trattoria cum steakhouse.

Aesthetically, suppose: a purple wine colour palette, banquette seating, uncovered brick, mosaics, and damaged Roman statues. The area itself will clock in at 140 seats (about half the scale of Prime), and the six-seat chef counter will probably be essentially the most coveted chairs in the home — and the place Moore and Gomez promise to proffer on-the-fly tasting menus.
