Harrah’s Joliet is dropping its “Paula Deen’s Kitchen” restaurant located inside its casino complex, as its corporate owner works to quickly re-brand its restaurants.

“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past that she recently disclosed during a deposition given in response to a lawsuit, after thoughtful consideration of their impact, we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,” according to a written statement from Jan Jones Blackhurst, Caesars Entertainment Executive Vice President of Communications and Government Affairs.

The buffet-style restaurant is one of a number of Paula Deen-branded restaurants in Caesar properties.  The Joliet restaurant will simply be called, “The Restaurant at Harrah’s” until a new name has been finalized.
