Martha Stewart opens her first restaurant in Vegas – and she designs it herself
Lifestyle icon Martha stewart will debut Martha Stewart’s The Bedford at Paris Las Vegas next spring. It is the first restaurant for the entrepreneur, Snoop Dogg’s best friend, and conqueror of all she touches.
Named after Stewart’s country house in Bedford, New York, the 194-seat restaurant will “give patrons an authentic glimpse into how she lives and is entertained in her own home,” according to a press release.
With seasonal dinners, weekend brunches, and holiday menus, the restaurant plans to use several local vendors and some of Stewart’s personal favorites: Las Vegas Farmers Market, Dartagnan Inc., Urbani Truffles, Roe Caviar, Frog Hollow Farm, Jasper Hill Farm and La crÃ¨merie du Vermont.
âOur menu will be delicious, featuring the same types of food that I serve to my friends and family,â said Stewart.
Stewart herself designs the restaurant with plans to bring the outdoors in with a neutral toned backdrop to reflect the aesthetic of Bedford’s beloved abode. (Stewart actually chose to serve the house arrest part of his sentence in 2005 at the time unfurnished house, which she bought in 2000 for $ 16 million. She updated the decor during the pandemic and posted photos on MarthaStewart.com.)
âWhen we open the doors, the Bedford by Martha Stewart will be a dining experience you just can’t get anywhere else,â said Jason Gregorec, senior vice president and general manager of Paris Las Vegas.
Stewart joins other great restaurants in Paris: Gordon Ramsay Steak, the grab-and-go Brioche By Guy Savoy, the Vanderpump in Paris under construction by Lisa Vanderpump and the third local extension of Nobu by Nobu Matsuhisa. Vanderpump in Paris, Nobu and The Bedford by Martha Stewart are among the most anticipated restaurants in Vegas for 2022.
Rumors of the Domestic Dean’s plans in Vegas started swirling around last July, when Vital Vegas speculated she would team up with Snoop Dogg for the new venture. Snoop Dogg does not appear to be a part of the project.
Although this marks Stewart’s first foray into the world of full-service catering, she once owned Martha Stewart Cafe, a cafe and tea room at the foot of the West 26th Street office building which continues to house Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. The cafe closed in 2019.
