Lisa Vanderpump to Open New Paris-Inspired Restaurant in Las Vegas
Vegas is going to get a little more Vanderpump. Restaurateur and reality star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd are opening a second spot in Sin City. The Paris-inspired restaurant will be located inside the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Vanderpump à Paris should open this winter.
New Lisa Vanderpump restaurant will feature ‘epic’ design, ‘sexy’ food
Like Vanderpump’s other restaurants, which include SUR in Los Angeles and the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace in Vegas, Vanderpump à Paris will marry high style with unique cocktails and food. The Vanderpump Rules star says the new restaurant is a “passion project” she has been working on for some time.
“Vanderpump Cocktail Garden has been such a huge success and working with Caesars has been a wonderful experience; we can’t wait to bring another concept to life under their umbrella,” the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member said in a statement. “After living in France for many years, it has been such an incredible journey to make our ideas a reality and, working with our extraordinary design partner Nick Alain, we have created a design unlike anything we’ve ever seen, with epic visual statements — it is our hope to bring the stunning visuals of Paris into the heart of Las Vegas.”
“The food will be sexy and delicious, the cocktails exquisite and unique, and the overall experience will be one that is unforgettable! It’s really been a labor of love and we can’t wait to share it with you,” she added.
The ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star’s Villa Blanca restaurant closed last year
The announcement of Vanderpump’s newest venture comes a year after she confirmed her Beverly Hills restaurant Villa Blanca would close after 12 years in business.
“We are indeed going to be closing up our doors for good,” Vanderpump said in a statement to the Daily Mail in July 2020. She told the paper that the restaurant’s lease was up and the landlord planned to increase the rent significantly.
“If the landlord had been willing to renegotiate and the lease wasn’t ending, we would have reopened, but unfortunately with coronavirus, the situation was beyond our control,” she said. Vanderpump added that she hoped to eventually reopen the restaurant in another location.
In addition to SUR and Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, the Bravo star’s other restaurants include TomTom and PUMP, both in LA.
When will ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 9 air?
Her new Vegas restaurant isn’t the only project Vanderpump has been working on recently. So far in 2020, she’s had three different shows premiere: Overserved, Pooch Perfect, and Vanderpump Dogs. Plus, Vanderpump Rules Season 9 is set to air later in 2021, according to ET. The new season marks a reset for the long-running series after several high-profile cast firings and exits in 2020. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Jax Taylor, and Brittany Cartwright are among those who will not return for the new episodes.
