Malone was crowned champion of season 15 of “Hell’s Kitchen” earlier this year. Her reward? The title of chef at BLT Steak in Bally’s Las Vegas (and $250,000). The famed hotel steakhouse on the Strip has two private dining rooms ideal for attendees looking to sample Malone’s take on the restaurant’s signature Gruyere-stuffed popovers and dry-aged steaks.
