On Friday, Amalfi by Bobby Flay celebrated its highly anticipated grand opening at Caesars Palace, welcoming guests to the all-new seafood concept inspired by the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Award-winning Bobby Flay was joined by Regional President of Caesars’ Entertainment Sean McBurney, Casesars’ CEO Tom Reeg, President and COO Anthony Carano, and business partner Laurence Kretchmer for the ceremony, which involved a kabuki drop unveiling of the brilliant golden-arched front entrance, a musical performance, and a toast.
“Opening Amalfi at Caesars Palace has allowed me to showcase my passion for the Amalfi Coast and the fresh flavors the region is known for,” said Flay in a press release. “Our team has created an incredible experience that brings everything I love about the Amalfi Coast to the Las Vegas Strip, from the various seating areas to the coastal cocktails, to the fresh fish market to all the seasonal flavors we are showcasing on the menu. We have been blown away by the guests’ response already, making me incredibly proud and excited for all that lies ahead.”
Amalfi offers a Mediterranean-inspired menu brimming with elegant and bold dishes such as the the Shellfish Fritto Misto with Meyer lemon aioli and pistachio pesto, Charred Octopus with burnt orange and pancetta, and the Squid Ink Fettuccine with lobster, shrimp and Fra Diavolo sauce. The menu also offers an exquisite selection of insalate, carne and contorni. For dessert, indulge in Bobby’s Pistachio Sundae made with pistachio gelato, dark chocolate sauce Amarena cherries, vanilla crema and chopped pistachios or the Lemon, Lemon, Lemon, which consists of cake, custard and crisps.
Inspired by Amalfi’s coastal markets, Amalfi features an impressive fresh fish and seafood display from which guests may order a golden snapper, red snapper, black bass, branzino, Carabinero shrimp, among others. The selection is then prepared to the guest’s choosing of grilled over charcoal or roasted al forno and served with Meyer lemon and capers, red pepper and Calabrian chile pesto or salsa verde. The menu also features signature cocktails such as the Amalfi Spritz (Selim Spumante, Cappelletti Aperitivo and soda).
Amalfi is comprised of four distinct, harmonious spaces that embody the warmth of the Amalfi Coast with a natural palette and a blend of organic fabrics, stone, and wood. The bar and lounge area, which seat a total of 70, is framed by a vibrant limestone mosaic and wood beans. The main dining area features limestone walls, antique brass, and stunning displays of wine from regions throughout the Amalfi Coast. The market room has a seaside cafe aesthetic with a rustic tiled flooring, and the private dining room provides the most intimate experience.
