Gordon Ramsay celebrates the first anniversary of Gordon Ramsay BurGR on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

Fiery celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay jetted into town Tuesday to celebrate the double anniversaries of his Las Vegas restaurants Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood.

A personalized birthday ice sculpture was on display at Pub & Grill, and Gordon toasted with his favorite beer Innis & Gunn. His casual dining venue was named in the Top 10 New & Notable Restaurants by travel survey Gayot, and Gordon noted that in its first year, the Caesars hotspot served more than 240,000 pints of beer on tap.

The BurGR team at Planet Hollywood built an impressive birthday cake in the shape of one of his high choice beef cut burgers for Gordon to slice up and serve. He presented them with commemorative pint glasses to mark the first anniversary of the two venues, which opened within days of each other in 2012.

As of Tuesday, Gordon Ramsay BurGR has served more than 500,000 customers and 466,000 burgers, not including the fish and crisp sandwiches and Devil Dawgs. The half-million mark for burgers should be surpassed in less than three weeks.

Before the day-and-night celebrations wound down, Gordon visited the newly opened champagne lounge Fizz across the floor from Pub & Grill. Fizz has its gala opening in the spring when its creator, David Furnish, husband of Caesars headliner Sir Elton John, returns with the legend’s “Million Dollar Piano” performances at the Colosseum.
