Chef Anthony Carron and his partners' 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria opened their first Las Vegas location last week at Boulevard at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.
"I spent a lot of time as a chef in Las Vegas and it is a surreal experience to open a restaurant right on the iconic Las Vegas Strip," Carron said in a news release. "Residents and visitors alike won't find a better authentic Neapolitan Pizza anywhere in Las Vegas."
The restaurant is part of a transformation taking place at the resort as the entire front façade is recreated. Monte Carlo General Manager Patrick Miller said, "800 Degrees' casual and approachable concept is a terrific enhancement to our resort's culinary offerings."
The space will have approximately 120 total seats with a 3,000-square-foot dining room inside and a 1,000-square-foot outdoor patio. 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria at Monte Carlo will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
The concept recently opened in Los Angeles at LAX airport and Santa Monica, and also has locations set to open at the SLS Las Vegas, Hollywood and Pasadena, Calif., and downtown Los Angeles. The restaurant group has also secured financing to open five New York City locations.
800 Degrees was created by Chef Carron, in partnership with Umami Restaurant Group and Allen Ravert.
