Money, Baby!, the Multifaceted, High-Energy Sports Venue From Clive Collective Opening at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, Part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, Announces a New Partnership With Food Network Star Beau Macmillan as Culinary Director.
Chef MacMillan will oversee culinary operations for Money, Baby!’s full-service restaurant, pairing his passion for fresh ingredients with the belief that food should be simple and delicious.
Host of “Worst Cooks in America” and judge on Guy Fieri’s “Guy’s Grocery Games,” Chef MacMillan’s TV credits also include “Iron Chef America,” where he defeated Bobby Flay, “The Next Iron Chef,” “The Best Thing I Ever Made,” “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” and “Beat the Chefs.”
“I’m extremely excited to come to Las Vegas and head up Money, Baby!’s culinary operations,” said Chef MacMillan. “When I heard about the concept, combining great food and beverage with sports and nightlife, I was sold. I’m a huge sports fan, and have cooked at Taste of the NFL, representing the Arizona Cardinals. I can’t wait for this new project and to share all of the ideas I’ve got up my sleeve for the entertainment capital of the world.”
“Chef Beau’s contagious personality and passion for creating dynamic food make him a perfect fit for Money, Baby!,” said Justin Massei, Clive Collective co-founder. “His cuisine and eye for providing excellent guest service, combined with the sports viewing and betting, nightlife and interactive games will make the Money, Baby! experience truly unique.”
Chef MacMillan will remain the executive chef of Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa in Arizona, and will continue to oversee its acclaimed restaurant elements as he has since opening in 1998. He previously worked as sous chef at Hotel Bel-Air, Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica and La Vieille Maison in Boca Raton. Hailing from Plymouth, Massachusetts, the Johnson & Wales University grad trained under Chef François de Mélogue. In 2017, Chef MacMillan conceptualized and created Nirvana, the Southwest’s premier food and wine festival featuring celebrity chef friends throughout the multi-day event.
