Rumor Las Vegas executive chef Vic Vegas.

Vic Vegas, a former contestant on "Next Food Network Star," is opening a restaurant this weekend in the hills of Anthem.

Simply called Vic's, the 180-seat restaurant opens Saturday, promising unobstructed views of Las Vegas with a menu the chef is calling country club meets rock 'n' roll.

"To me, the experience at Vic's will be like being seated in the rear of a Bentley while cranking up "Welcome to the Jungle" with someone like The Rock as your chauffeur," he said.

After learning to cook from his mother and grandmother, Vegas has been chef for Addiction at Rumor Las Vegas. He recently has been doing catering in preparation to open the Anthem restaurant.

The menu features starters such as meatloaf spring rolls and a salad of watermelon, mozzarella and arugula. Entries include a 16-ounce broiled, double-boned, center-cut pork chop with his grandmother's stuffing, topped with a broth of caramel apple and butter whiskey. For dessert, expect deep-fried Nutter Butter cookies with a chambord Welch's grape juice reduction and crème brûlée bread pudding.

Vic's serves dinner from 4 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 4 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Plans are to add lunch in a few weeks. The phone number is (702) 522-7200.
