Top 5 Restaurants Closed In Las Vegas

Top 5 Restaurants Closed In Las Vegas

Closed Sign by Whimzy

With 2020 being an incredibly tough year for all, some of Las Vegas most loved venues have chosen to shut for good. We bring you the Top 5 places that will be missed.

Flock & Fowl

This once loved restaurant in Downtown Fremont East closed its doors late in 2020 and will be making way for a new chapter.

The couple wrote on their Instagram “They say all good things must come to an end, but sometimes good things become better things. Since we came back after quarantine in May, we’ve been slowly evolving into what our new vision for Flock & Fowl is. But that new vision is not Flock & Fowl. 

Our new place will be a complete departure in name, and style, but not soul. So don’t worry, because the same team that has kept Flock & Fowl going through these difficult times will still be here, (at the same location!) when our doors re-open.”

Morels French Steakhouse

A once loved fine steak restaurant located in the Palazzo, with beautiful strip views is now closed for good. 

Sadly with the limited capacity due to COVID-19, and further restrictions, they decided to close last year.

The owners Chipper Pastron, Sal Casola Jr., and Sal Casola Sr. said in a statement, “Unfortunately, these uncertain economic times brought on by COVID-19 has made it impossible to survive as an independent restaurant operator in a hotel with an estimated occupancy of less than 50 per cent for the foreseeable future. It is with heavy hearts that we have made the difficult decision to permanently close. We are so proud of what we’ve achieved at Morels with our team and are grateful for our loyal customers and their support over the years.

We love Las Vegas and hope to find a new place when it’s the right time.”

All Buffets

Sadly, yes, all the buffets are currently closed! One of the great things about Vegas is its buffets and the high quality of food and drinks that come with it. These continue to be closed and who only knows when they will be returning to normality?!

Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill

This very much loved restaurant inside Caesars Palace has closed and replaced with another restaurant by Bobby Flay. He is opening another Italian themed restaurant due in Spring later this year and will be called Amalfi Bobby Flay.

In a statement given by Bobby, “Food in Amalfi is known for two things, the fish that comes out of the water and pasta, Flay says in a press statement. “I want to bring the best of the region to Caesars Palace, and every dish that is served at the all-new Amalfi will evoke the flavors and feel of Italy.”

We look forward to this opening!

1 Oak

This famous nightspot located at the Mirage has permanently closed its doors!

It seems a trending pattern of clubs shutting sadly. 1 Oak has followed in the footsteps of Intrigue at Wynn, Hyde at Bellagio and Kaos at Palms. 

MGM has not given an explanation as to what is going to replace this venue.
