Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, has announced that The Slanted Door will be joining The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, opening in 2018. A modern Vietnamese restaurant with roots in San Francisco’s Mission District, The Slanted Door will open its first location outside of California, an 8200 square foot restaurant to be situated on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Slanted Door will open at The Forum Shops in 2018.

“When we think about elevating the consumer experience, restaurants like The Slanted Door are the kinds of brands Simon looks for,” says Vicki Hanor, senior executive vice president of Leasing at Simon. “With its first floor, high visibility location, we are certain that it will become an instant favorite for our shoppers and visitors to Las Vegas in search of exceptional and unique dining venues.”

The Slanted Door, which opened its first restaurant in 1995, uses the finest and freshest local ingredients and Vietnamese cooking techniques to create a menu that has been recognized with the exclusive James Beard Outstanding Restaurant award (2014), given to only one restaurant nationally a year.

“We are excited to expand into the Las Vegas market,” says The Slanted Door owner and executive chef, Charles Phan. “The Forum Shops will provide unparalleled access to residents, tourists and shoppers and we look forward to creating the kind of dining ambiance that has been so warmly received in San Francisco for the last 20-plus years.”
