COTE Korean Steakhouse Announces First Location in Las Vegas at The Venetian Resort

The Venetian Resort Las Vegas

America’s first and only Michelin-starred Korean steakhouse concept is set to make its debut on the West Coast

LAS VEGAS, NV (June 4, 2024) – Gracious Hospitality Management
announces plans to open COTE Vegas, the brand’s first West Coast
concept in 2025. Located at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas, the
Michelin-starred Korean steakhouse recently named North America’s Best
Steakhouse by World’s 101 Best Steak Restaurants, will debut early
next year as a part of the resort’s $1.5 billion reinvestment project,
which will touch nearly every facet of the legendary resort – from
groundbreaking entertainment venues to new culinary concepts to
renovated suites.

 Infused with the opulence and grandeur of Sin City, COTE Vegas will
draw inspiration from its renowned counterparts in New York, Miami, and
Singapore while introducing new, immersive dining experiences unique to
Las Vegas.

 COTE Vegas will remain true to COTE’s philosophy of marrying the
conviviality of Korean BBQ together with the hallmarks of a classic
American steakhouse. Guests can expect the highest quality cuts of beef,
ranging from A5 wagyu from Kobe, Sendai, and Miyazaki to 45, 90, and
120-day aged steak. The menu will feature the concept’s signature
Butcher’s Feast, offering diners a chance to experience four cuts of the
highest quality beef, and a variety of Korean-inspired sides, along with
Steak & Eggs, Legend of the Seven Jades, and a variety of other iconic
dishes that COTE loyalists know and love. Complementing the menu, COTE
Vegas will feature the restaurant’s impeccable four-time James
Beard-nominated wine program, featuring a 1,200+ label wine list and a
suite of classic-but-creative cocktails.

Designed by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group, the renowned architecture
and design firm behind Gracious Hospitality Management’s recently opened
COQODAQ and three new concepts in the landmark 550 Madison, COTE Vegas
references COTE’s DNA, such as dramatic lighting, a dry-aging room, and
in-table smokeless grills, and filters these elements through a
glamorous Las Vegas lens. Upon entering, guests will be transported into
a dynamic tiered dining area inspired by a theater in the round, with
skybox private dining rooms, a central bar, immersive lighting, a DJ
booth, and more.

 “I went to UNLV, and my first formative job in the world of hospitality
was in Las Vegas, so opening a COTE in this entertainment epicenter is
more than just any traditional opening—it’s a triumphant homecoming,”
said Simon Kim, founder and chief executive officer of Gracious
Hospitality Management. “While COTE Korean Steakhouse is a concept I
created in NYC, the pulsating energy, music, and entertainment of Las
Vegas has always been intertwined in our brand’s DNA, and we’re taking
that to the next level with this opening. I’m honored to collaborate
with The Venetian Resort on our first West Coast location and thrilled
to be partnering again with David Rockwell as we aspire to create the
most iconic Las Vegas restaurant the city has ever seen. We’re taking
our endless emphasis and focus on excellence in gastronomy and
hospitality and amplifying the entertainment angle to the fullest extent
to create something the city can be proud of, and I can’t wait to bring
it to life.”

 “We’re proud to welcome COTE, and it’s an honor for The Venetian
to be the flagship location for COTE’s highly anticipated West Coast
debut,” said Patrick Nichols, president and chief executive officer of
The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. “COTE’s arrival further cements our
position as the leader in chef-driven restaurants and world-class
culinary experiences on the Las Vegas Strip and exemplifies a new era
for The Venetian as we embark on our $1.5 billion transformational
re-investment project.”  

 COTE Vegas will be located in the Waterfall Atrium at The Venetian
Resort Las Vegas.

 The introduction of COTE Vegas follows an exciting year of expansion
for Gracious Hospitality Management, which included COTE Singapore, the
brand’s first international concept and COQODAQ, a fried chicken
concept in New York City, along with the announcement of the forthcoming
550 Madison project, a multi-level project that features an exclusive
sushi restaurant led by Michelin-starred Chef Masahiro Yoshitake, New
York’s second COTE Korean Steakhouse, and an all-day multi-bar and
dining concept.
