Hell’s Kitchen restaurant to feature 2 teams, separate menus

Jennifer Murphy has been named executive chef of the future Hell’s Kitchen. The restaurant, expected to open shortly after the new year in the former Serendipity 3 space at Caesars Palace, will be Gordon Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant. The celebrity chef has said it will feature two cooking teams, preparing separate menus. Murphy previously was chef de cuisine at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.

A milestone for ‘Iron Chef’

Saturday, he’ll sign copies of his latest cookbook, “Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking,” starting at 3 p.m. in the resort’s lobby (copies will be available for purchase in the lobby store Grand & Company). Friday and Saturday, he’ll host a pair of seven-course anniversary tasting dinners. Tickets are $300. mgmgrand.com.
