Ja’Nel Witt was named winner of “Hell’s Kitchen” Season 11 last night and was awarded the position of head chef at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace. Witt will serve under Chef Jeremy Berlin.
“Hell’s Kitchen” is a reality television cooking competition on Fox hosted by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay in which he progressively eliminates chefs from a pool of 18 contestants down to one.
Ramsay presented Witt with her new chef’s coat during a viewing party at the Pub & Grill last night. Guests watched the season finale of “Hell’s Kitchen” with Witt and the other final contestant, Mary Poehnelt, while dining on a sampling of Ramsay’s famous pub food including braised pork belly, grilled lamb rack and poached shrimp with chilled fennel soup.
The Pub & Grill serves lunch and dinner daily in an English pub-style setting. Menu highlights include traditional favorites like bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie and fish & chips, as well as dishes such as Scottish salmon, braised beef cheek and sticky toffee pudding for dessert.
Ramsay also has other restaurants in Las Vegas including Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood and Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris, where “Hell’s Kitchen” Season 10 winner Christina Wilson serves as head chef.
