You could be forgiven for thinking that after five restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, chef Gordon Ramsay would think he’d received his just desert. But you would be wrong.

And so it was the other morning that a small group of invited guests gathered at Ramsay’s Kitchen, his sixth restaurant on the Strip, scheduled to debut Thursday in Harrah’s Las Vegas. Members of the Ramsay retinue delivered tasting samples: flatbread and maitake mushrooms and spoons adorned with savory crab cake baubles.

Like many who work in the top tier of the restaurant world, they had the knack of describing ingredients like an invocation. And then the chef arrived, in a white kitchen coat, with a signature upswoosh of hair, sounding as enthusiastic as if Ramsay’s Kitchen were his first Strip spot, not his sixth.
