Explore the inspiration behind the many different design elements at Chef Bobby Flay's first-ever Italian restaurant in Las Vegas.
Olivia Jane Design teamed up with Chef Bobby Flay to transport guests at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to the Amalfi Coast. Their goal was to create a dynamic space that evokes feelings and nuances of the Italian region based on Flay's passion for the food and his extensive travels there. It's not an exact replica of Amalfi but the subtle details, patterns of the fabric and textures of the finishes allude to the feeling of dining al fresco after a long day in the sun with friends.
There are four unique dining experiences within the space.:
1 THE BAR / LOUNGE
The massive 50ft long bar accommodates up to 30 guests. It features a vibrant, glowing bar that casts a warm “golden hour” glow onto the lounge and guests seated there. Striped fabric is a nod to the swarms of umbrellas and chairs sprawled across the beaches on the Amalfi Coast.
Design features that you’ll notice: a colorful limestone mosaic floor, teak wood beams above, rough plaster
2 THE GRILLE ROOM
This room offers guests an intimate look into the action of the bustling kitchen, cladded in an antiqued bronze & topped with a feature wine display – evoking the vertical landscape of the coast and the cafes terraced along the cliffs on the Amalfi Coast. Displays feature hundreds of bottles of wine from various regions throughout Italy.
Design features that you’ll notice: antique brass cladding at kitchen/wine display, heavily textured limestone walls, rough plaster
3 THE MARKET ROOM
The market room evokes the feeling of dining al fresco in a café along a side street. Guests in the market room have an up close and personal view of the spectacular fresh seafood display, featuring bright blue tiled basins featuring fresh fish and shellfish from across the world.
Design features that you’ll notice: rustic tiled floor, string lights hanging above the large white wood beams, rough plaster
4 THE PRIVATE DINING ROOM
This room is perfect for large parties or events and is also well-suited for overflow dining. The private dining space offers guests a behind the scenes view of the fishmonger at work. Guests are immersed in a larger than life mural, in the spirit of the hand painted plates Italy is famous for.
Design features that you’ll notice: wood floor, whitewashed wood beams overhead, glowing chandeliers throughout + an incredible massive curved wood sliding door that offers more privacy when necessary
