'Hell's Kitchen' Season 21: How do you become a guest in Gordon Ramsay's restaurant from the show?
Here's how you can dine at the restaurant featured on FOX's hit cooking competion ‘Hell’s Kitchen’
The newest season of 'Hell's Kitchen' is just around the corner. If you're a fan of cooking shows, then you must have come across Gordon Ramsay's brutally honest cooking competition series. To all those who crave the food at 'Hell's Kitchen' or want to be a part of the show as guests, the good news is that it's definitely an option. But it is a rather tedious process. You can follow a few ways to dine at the popular restaurant.
A show where some superbly talented chefs compete to garner a name in the culinary world, it is indeed a cut-throat competition, complete with Gordon's brand of "spicy" insults. Many of the culinary industry's top chefs are alums of this reality series hosted byMichelin Star chef Ramsay. So it's no wonder that fans are curious to know if they can dine at the restaurant where the show takes place. Here are a few ways to eat at this fine establishment where the reality show takes place.
Sign up with a casting agency
The show shoots two seasons at a time, so the hours to dine are odd. It films for eight weeks every few years, and Ramsay and his crew are present for the entirety of it. The extras are brought in through predetermined casting calls ahead of the entire process. So signing up with a casting agency to be an extra on the show (as a guest) is an excellent way to taste the food cooked throughout the series. Following the social’s of the show can also benefit in finding out when the casting directors are looking for extras to star as audience members. However, casting for shows of this caliber is high in demand, so there's a good chance you might not make the cut. Also, being cast as an extra won't necessarily mean you'll get to eat the food or, for that matter, meet Ramsay.
There is an official 'Hell's Kitchen' restaurant that fans can actually dine at
There is another option for fans of the show to dine at the restaurant featured in the show. In Caesars Palace Casino in Las Vegas, Ramsay has opened a Hell's Kitchen-themed restaurant of the same name that replicates the actual show's set and serves up the same kind of dishes. So while it may not be the real deal, it does an excellent job of replicating the show's environment. Here you can taste the exact recipies that Gordon badgers the contestants over or praises them (sometimes) over. Of course, there will be no yelling from the celebrity chef here. You can even book yourself a reservation to ensure your table is available whenever you plan to dine at the establishment.
'Hell's Kitchen' Season 21 is scheduled to premiere on Thursday, September 29 at 8 pm ET/PT on Fox.
