Bobby Flay has been a longtime fixture in Las Vegas, but the Iron Chef veteran is going through a period of transition. After a run of 16 years, the celebrity chef replaced Mesa Grill with Amalfi at Caesars Palace, trading in Southwest flavors for fresh seafood and coastal Italian cuisine. Choose from the day's catch, on display in the dining room, and have it grilled whole or filleted. The menu is rounded out by eight pastas and a selection of Spritz variations, which go down nicely in the Mediterranean-inspired dining room. Flay also said goodbye to Bobby's Burger Palace at CityCenter during the pandemic, but recently welcomed the arrival of Bobby's Burgers service counters at Caesars Palace, Paris, and Harrah's.

It was time for a change. Just last year, Bobby Flay turned his long-running Mesa Grill into Amalfi, where fresh seafood and coastal Italian cuisine is served within a dining room of gray stone walls and curtains to block out the chaos of the Caesars Palace casino floor. The restaurant welcomes up to five deliveries of fresh fish a week with the latest catch on display in the dining room. Branzino (a common sight on Las Vegas dinner menus) is the most popular, but the nuttiness of the golden snapper is a welcome change of pace. The fish is grilled whole or filleted with light seasoning and a choice of sauces on the side. Eight pasta dishes are robust in flavor with even the caramelle (stuffed with sweet potato and topped with brown butter) packing subtle heat. The squash blossoms are the most rewarding appetizer, balancing sweet ricotta with a salty anchovy sauce. The cocktail menu smartly avoids trying to cover too much ground—no Mules, for example—while focusing on Italian-inspired libations like two Negronis and five takes on a Spritz.
