Las Vegas Hotel Sues Over Dessert Name
(Las Vegas, NV) — One of downtown Las Vegas’ best-known hotels isn’t happy a restaurant chain has used its name for a dessert item.
The “Review-Journal” says Landry’s, which owns the Golden Nugget, has sued the parent company of LongHorn Steakhouse for copyright infringement.
It claims the “golden nugget,” which features breaded and fried cheesecake chunks over ice cream with strawberry sauce, creates market confusion.
Landry’s also owns McCormick and Schmick’s and the Rainforest Café. Darden is the owner of LongHorn, Red Lobster, Olive Garden and the Capital Grille.
