About the Chef:
Celebrity chef and cookbook author, Rick Moonen, has been the country’s leading advocate in the sustainable seafood movement for the past 25 yrs, bringing national awareness. His flagship restaurant, Rick Moonen’s rm seafood in The Shoppes at Mandalay Place Las Vegas, showcases his commitment to sustainability without foregoing culinary creativity and innovation and has been critically acclaimed by local and national press alike. 2010, Rick made a memorable appearance on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, nearly taking home the title and raising thousands of dollars and national awareness for Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas. In May 2011, Monterey Bay Aquarium honored Rick as their “Chef of the Year” for his tireless efforts towards sustainability. In 2013, USA Today named him one of Earth’s “Power Players”, thus gaining the title of “Humanitarian of the Year” by the American Culinary Federation. Later that year, Rick transformed rm upstairs into a steampunk-inspired restaurant named Rx Boiler Room, with décor reminiscent of industrialism during the 19th-century Victorian era. Combining the alchemy of food and drink, Rick showcases his spin on classic comfort food, offering guests a variety of playful creations in small and large plate portions, ideal for a shared dining experience.
RM Seafood allows restaurant goers to dive right into sustainable, perfectly prepared fish and seafood.
Rx BOILER ROOM
Directly upstairs from the RM Seafood, is the Rx Boiler Room, which opened in July 2013, combines the alchemy of food and drink as Moonen’s menu creates a spin on classic comfort food with a creative and cutting-edge experience. The decor is unique in that is a steampunk-inspired space. It starts with industrial hardware, features swooping velveteen fabrics and an interactive bar that exposes all of the alchemist tools unique to carefully concocting Rx Boiler Room libations. Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, based on an alternate history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era.
