Hell's Kitchen Winner Ariel Malone Creates New Specials For BLT Steak At Bally's

Ariel & Chef Ramsay

Hot off the heels of her season 15 win on Gordon Ramsay’s hit FOX reality show, HELL’S KITCHEN, Ariel Malone is ready to cash in her prize as Head Chef at BLT Steak at Bally’s Las Vegas. Malone has created new blackboard specials to jump into the exciting Las Vegas culinary scene.

Inspired by her time on the television show, BLT Steak’s classic steakhouse cuisine and seasonal ingredients, Malone has created the following specials to be featured weekly on the blackboard menu:

Week of July 25: Pan-seared chicken breast with gremolata butter, spring peas and baby carrots

Week of August 1: Cucumber tomato salad with romaine lettuce, shallots, garlic, parsley and lemon

Week of August 8: Seared scallops in black bean puree with a summer corn salsa

Malone hails from Teaneck, New Jersey, where her passion for cooking began more than 10 years ago in the solace of her home kitchen. While not classically trained, Malone began working in kitchens, absorbing as much as possible, including a variety of cuisines and techniques. After fostering her skills, she decided to take a major leap of faith and compete in the 15th season of HELL’S KITCHEN.

Throughout the competition, Malone made waves for being unapologetically proud of who she is and her impressive talent. Equally as important, Chef Gordon Ramsay stated her, “creativity and attention to detail has been second to none.” In the end, Malone came out on top, earning her the grand prize of $250,000 and head chef position at BLT Steak at Bally’s Las Vegas.

Malone looks forward to quickly making her mark on BLT Steak and Las Vegas by bringing her creativity to more blackboard specials and her attention to detail to restaurant’s signature menu items. If you’re lucky, you might catch her in the dining room greeting guests and taking photos with fans.
