Award-Winning Chef Dominique Ansel to Open Paris-Inspired Market in Las Vegas this Fall


Renowned James Beard Award-winning French pastry chef, Dominique Ansel, has set the culinary world abuzz with the announcement of the opening of his second gastronomical outpost in Las Vegas – Dominique Ansel Marché – scheduled to debut this fall at Paris, Las Vegas. This innovation complements his first Sin City eatery, Dominique Ansel Las Vegas, which opened its doors at Caesar’s Palace in May 2022.

The enticing concept behind Dominique Ansel Marché draws deeply on the open-air markets that are a signature element in the culinary landscape of Paris. The former space of JJ’s Boulangerie will be rejuvenated and showcase an invigorating menu promising the tastiest rotisserie chicken and succulent roasted potatoes.

Ansel, steeped in admiration for the open-air markets of Paris, conveyed his passion for the freshness and quality of products found there. Ansel said, “I’ve always loved the open-air markets that often pop up throughout Paris, where you can find the best and freshest foods.”

True to Ansel’s pastry expertise, the market will be a haven for dessert enthusiasts with a delicious array of croissants, viennoiserie, cakes, and the groundbreaking cronut – the ingenious croissant-doughnut hybrid that Ansel himself invented.
