Rachel’s Kitchen opened in the Las Vegas valley in September 2006 and is named after my daughter Rachel.

The History of Rachel’s Kitchen


After the great success and notoriety of what were ultimately seven restaurants in Los Angeles, I made the decision to relocate to the newest culinary capital of the world, Las Vegas. Home to more celebrity chefs than possibly anywhere else in the world, I couldn’t have picked a better location for my latest venture.

Named after my daughter, the first Rachel’s Kitchen was opened in 2006 – a quaint café featuring delicious and reasonably priced bistro fare. The concept was simple: serve fresh, high quality and great tasting food with a gourmet touch at affordable prices. Thirteen years later, that single location has blossomed to eight unique locations around the Las Vegas Valley, including a coveted spot inside McCarran International Airport where nearly 50 million visitors from all over the world are being introduced to the Rachel’s Kitchen brand and its fresh casual menu every year.

That expansion would not have been possible had the concept not garnered rave reviews from customers and critics alike. The reaction was strong and immediate, with word spreading quickly throughout town and quickly making Rachel’s Kitchen THE place to eat lunch.
