TV star chef Giada De Laurentiis has been investing a great deal of time in Las Vegas considering that she opened her initial dining establishment at the Cromwell on the Strip more than three years ago. She was back in town Saturday for an additional unique occasion– Nevada Ballet Theatre’s 34th yearly Black & & White Ball at Wynn Las Vegas, where she was honored as “Woman of the Year” for her accomplishments and dedication to charitable causes.

” First of all, I’m following some pretty amazing women, talented ladies, and that’s No. 1 on the list. To have my name next to legends like Priscilla Presley and Marie Osmond is unbelievable, and to be the first female chef to do this is a quite amazing honor,” De Laurentiis stated from the red carpet prior to the event. “Truthfully, I believe I have actually resided in a little bit of a bubble given that I opened Giada. I come to Vegas and invest all my time at the restaurant and do not really socialize with a great deal of people, so this is an opportunity– now that I have 2 places in Las Vegas– to start to get to know people. It is very important.”

The connection to NBT, among the cornerstones of regional arts and culture, reinforces De Laurentiis’ relationship with Las Vegas, however her new dining establishment Pronto helps, too. Her second restaurant opens on Saturday, Feb. 3, with a grand opening planned for Feb. 10.

” I desired Pronto to be more casual as well as more fun, not that Giada is stuffy, but it is great dining,” she said. “We tore down all those walls and opened the area to make it intense and warm like a cup of sunshine when you first wake up. I wanted the design to be young and contemporary, intense and pleased, but still Italian.”

Whereas Giada is a full-service dining destination, Pronto will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in a fast, grab-and-go format, focusing on pushed paninis, salads, pastries and rich coffee with a comfortable wine bar. “I believe we struck a crowning achievement,” she stated of the space that used to be Payard Patisserie and Restaurant, near Caesars’ popular Bacchanal Buffet. “I think the gelato will be a favorite, and the antipasti at the wine bar, since you can’t really find that anywhere else. And the pushed Panini, though I don’t know which one. It’s constantly hard to guess which product is going to be the one individuals talk about.”
