Eat Like A Caesar at Caesars Palace

The ancient Romans knew how to party. When it came to food and wine, these guys always brought their A game.

Meals were meant to be a spectacle with multiple courses of extravagant dishes. The goal was always to impress your guests and outdo everyone else.

Today, the restaurants at Caesars Palace still live up to that philosophy.

When you check out the array of lavish restaurants, celebrity chefs and international cuisine you’ll be wondering, did Caesar eat here?

He totally would have. And you can too.

Bacchanal Buffet

Meet a Vegas classic revolutionized. Explore the Bacchanal Buffet and tackle the astounding array of several hundred dishes at the Bacchanal Buffet and like Caesar, you will be able to say “I came. I saw. I conquered.”

The ancient Romans were famous for their extravagant banquets and if you want to have a similar experience today, the Bacchanal Buffet is the place to do it.

The buffet features nine kitchens with specialized chefs preparing food in front of the guests. The dishes include everything from prime rib to crab legs, lamb chops, pork belly, shrimp, ribs and dazzling desserts.

Bacchus, the god of wine for whom the buffet gets its name, would also be proud. You can really live it up and order unlimited wine, beer or mimosas for an extra charge.

If you’d like to come and dine like a Caesar yourself, Caesars Palace is offering a special package rate on hotel rooms with brunch for two at the Bacchanal Buffet.

Nobu Restaurant has seafood delicacies that are made for Roman Emperor

Nobu Restaurant

Caesar didn’t do anything on a small scale so we’re pretty sure he would have been pleased to have one of the largest Nobu restaurants in the world at his Palace. At 11,200 square feet, Nobu Restaurant & Lounge offers a sushi bar, private dining area, central bar and teppan tables.

Guests can dine on imported Asian fish, sushi, sashimi, lobster, teriyaki dishes and the signature black cod miso from acclaimed chef Nobu Matsuhisa. For a true indulgence there’s an A5 Japanese Wagyu Banquet prepared on Teppanyaki tables.

We know the ancient Romans liked wine but we think they also would have enjoyed Nobu’s three rare sakes from Japan’s Hokusetsu brewery on Sado Island, one of which is made by hand.

If you want to really enjoy a life like a Caesar, stay in bed and order from Nobu’s in-room dining menu. You won’t have someone hand-feeding you grapes, but it’s almost as good. Wake up with blueberry and yuzu soba pancakes or green tea waffles.

Order delectable caviar for room service from Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace

If Caesar wanted to impress his friends we bet he would have taken them to Restaurant Guy Savoy.

The Michelin-starred chef’s restaurant in Paris was named Best Restaurant in The World by La Liste and his restaurant at Caesars Palace emulates that menu.

You’ll find dishes like Savoy’s famous artichoke and black truffle soup and his brioche feuillellée aux champignons et truffles. For dessert, don’t miss out on the fondant au chocolat.

For a truly epic splurge, you can also visit Guy Savoy’s Caviar Room, which offers an exclusive menu of caviar dishes. Or sit at the Krug Chef’s Table, which gives guests at the six-seat table an intimate view of the kitchen while enjoying a tasting menu curated to pair perfectly with Krug’s prestige cuveé Champagnes.

Want to Eat like A Caesar? Head to MR CHOW and try the Green Prawns

MR CHOW

In ancient Rome if you wanted to wow your guests, you put out a spread of extravagant dishes that would ensure your feast would be talked about — and that’s kind of how it is when you dine at MR CHOW.

Guests are whisked upstairs through a set of private elevators to the striking dining room. The restaurant’s centerpiece is a suspended kinetic sculpture that moves and rotates as the night goes on.

Meals at MR CHOW are served family-style, so you’ll want to fill your table with a wide variety of dishes to share with your friends. Order the signature items like chicken satay, green prawns, Beijing duck  and hand-pulled MR CHOW noodles.

Pair your meal with bubbles from MR CHOW’s famous Champagne trolley.

If you really want to eat like a Caesar, request a table outside overlooking the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis so you can survey your empire.

Uncle Vincent's Lemon Chicken at Rao's in Caesars Palace

Rao’s

The original Rao’s opened in New York City in 1896 and with only 12 tables, it’s one of the city’s most exclusive restaurants and one of the hardest places to get into. Caesar wouldn’t have had any trouble getting in. When you rule the empire, reservations are not needed.

Lucky for all of us, Rao’s opened a Vegas offshoot of the restaurant at Caesars Palace and it has room for you. It not only features a replica of the 12-table landmark, but an open air patio, center bar, private dining and event space.

The Southern Italian fare here is made with the highest-quality ingredients, such as house-roasted red peppers, freshly grated Pecorino-Romano and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheeses, Felipo Berio olive oil and San Marzano plum tomatoes imported from Italy.

Be sure to try Uncle Vincent’s Lemon Chicken, the mouthwatering Rao’s meatballs and the classic veal chop, which is pan-seared and topped with a medley of hot and sweet cherry peppers.

Delectable steaks at Old Homestead Steakhouse

Old Homestead Steakhouse

Caesars Palace is also home to another legendary New York restaurant, Old Homestead Steakhouse. You can get all of your favorite cuts of steak ranging from New York strip to porterhouse for two (be sure to bring your Cleopatra to share with you), as well as things like Kobe meatballs and seafood towers.

You can bet that everything is top quality. The certified Angus beef passes an additional nine quality standards above regular prime and it’s dry-aged for a minimum of 30 days.

The Romans were all about decadent meals and we love all of the extras at Old Homestead that can make your meal over the top. Indulge in truffle butter on your steak, splurge on a 10-ounce rare Japanese A5 Wagyu or order fresh oysters, golden osetra caviar and seared foie gras.

Bonus: The restaurant has a wine cellar that holds 15,000 bottles.

Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace serves a Southwestern menu fit for A Caesars

Mesa Grill

Caesar always had the best chefs working for him. If celebrity chefs had been a thing in his day he probably would have had Bobby Flay cooking his feasts.

You can feast on Flay’s Southwestern fare at his Las Vegas restaurant Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace. Enjoy bold, spicy flavors and tastes inspired by Flay’s love of grilling.

Start out with goat cheese queso fundido or a crusted avocado tostada. Main dishes include New Mexican spice rubbed pork tenderloin, ancho chile-honey glazed salmon and mango and spice crusted tuna steak.

Mesa Grill also offers some of the country’s highest-quality tequila and mezcal offerings. The tequila selection has only 100 percent Blue Agave tequilas. Try it in a signature Mesa Margarita, prickly pear margarita and the white peach margarita.

Eat Like A Caesars at Gordon Ramsay Hell's Kitchen at Caesars Palace

Hell’s Kitchen

You think the gladiator games of ancient Rome were tough? That’s nothing compared to the way Gordon Ramsay runs his kitchen. The celebrated chef opened his fifth Vegas restaurant, HELL’S KITCHEN, recently at Caesars Palace.

The restaurant is inspired by the popular TV show of the same name and features the signature red and blue design details. Chefs and cooks in the kitchen are decked out in the exact uniforms from the show – red and blue jackets with coordinating bandanas. In this kitchen, Ramsay, like Caesar, has the ultimate thumbs up or thumbs down vote.

HELL’S KITCHEN serves several of the most successful signature menu items and recipes featured on the show like pan-seared scallops, lobster butternut squash risotto and crispy skin salmon. Special menu items from the show will also be added as new episodes air. Instead of hearing cries of “Hail, Caesar!” you’ll be more likely to hear shouts of “Yes, Chef!”
