The Tropicana Las Vegas has officially opened its highly anticipated restaurant in partnership with Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine – Robert Irvine’s Public House. The renowned chef and TV personality celebrated opening in true Robert Irvine fashion by descending upon Las Vegas Boulevard with a three-vehicle military-inspired convoy.
Irvine topped himself by making his grand entrance by arriving via helicopter, where he landed on the Northeast entrance of the iconic property, just off the famed Las Vegas Strip.
Featuring nearly 9,000 square feet, the restaurant has a 275-seat dining room complete with a wraparound bar, open kitchen design, private dining room and views of The Strip
The restaurant offers a range of comfort food options inspired by Irvine’s culinary travels from around the world – all in a pub-like atmosphere. Highlights include fork and knife burger (Vermont sharp cheddar fondue, mushrooms, onions, smoked bacon, brioche roll); chicken fried duck confit (maple and sherry vinegar, braised kale and chard, buttery sriracha sauce); stone fired shepherd’s pie (ground lamb, onion, English peas, mashed potato crust); English banoffee pie (banana, toffee, espresso ice cream); and mason jar apple pie (five-year aged cheddar, vanilla ice cream), to name a few.
“Opening a restaurant in Las Vegas has been a longtime dream of mine and being inside the iconic Tropicana Las Vegas makes Public House that much more extraordinary,” said Chef Irvine. “With this restaurant, I am excited to share my travels through food and beverage, and presenting guests with good food and a great experience, all at a reasonable price. Public House is all about offering something for everyone.”
To complement the overall dining experience, guests can imbibe with an emporium of beer, wine, and craft cocktails options. The restaurant features more than 32 beers on tap, 30 by the bottle, plus a variety of wines by the glass or bottle, and more than a dozen signature cocktails.
