LAS VEGAS (May 20, 2021) — After 16 years of consumer and critical acclaim at Caesars Palace, award-winning chef Bobby Flay has opened his highly-anticipated first Italian restaurant, Amalfi by Bobby Flay. Inspired by Flay’s extensive travels to Italy and the Amalfi Coast, Amalfi transports guests to the Mediterranean with its vibrant blend of coastal ease and fresh, bright flavors.
The beauty of southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast has inspired many for centuries with its picturesque scenery, fresh sea life and produce, vibrant greenery and ease of life—these elements are all seen, smelled, felt and, most importantly, tasted at Flay’s new Amalfi restaurant.
“After immersing myself in Italian culture and spending time exploring, cooking and eating with the country’s greatest chefs, I can honestly say Italy has stolen my heart. My time in that region inspired me to bring fresh fish, perfectly made pastas, herbaceous flavors, and so much more to Caesars Palace,” said Flay. “I put my heart and soul into every restaurant I open, and I’m always looking for new ways to evolve. Amalfi is special because I get to showcase my passion through my signature bold flavors, but in an all-new way that will evoke the tastes, smells and feels of Italy.”
Flay’s interest in Italian cuisine runs deep, with admiration for its rustic elegance and festive eating, which is showcased through Amalfi’s menu. Dishes range from light antipasti, to a large menu of rich pastas. A focal point of Amalfi is the fresh fish and seafood display, inspired by coastal Italian markets and staffed by a knowledgeable fishmonger, who is available to answer any guests’ questions—from where the fish is from, when it arrived in Las Vegas and more. Guests may order a whole fish, prepared grilled over charcoal or roasted al forno, served with lemon, capers and salsa verde. To finish on a sweet note, dessert staples will include pistachio olive oil cake and dark chocolate tiramisu.
Designed by Olivia Jane Design & Interiors, Amalfi features a timeless design with a natural palate and touches of greenery throughout, blended with elements like organic fabrics, stone, and wood materials, lending depth and a sense of history to the space. Amalfi offers four unique yet cohesive spaces—the bar and lounge, the grille/main dining room, the market room and a private dining room.
Amalfi by Bobby Flay at Caesars Palace is open 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 5 to 10:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, with very limited seatings available. For more information visit https://www.caesars.com/caesars-palace/restaurants/amalfi.
