Ashton Kutcher is among a group of investors expected to launch a restaurant in a planned Reno hotel-condominium-casino.

The new Dolce restaurant would serve the same Italian cuisine as its Melrose Avenue location in Hollywood, Calif.

With its celebrity investors, who include Kutcher, best known for his role on “That ’70s Show” and as the husband of Demi Moore, the restaurant could attract a glamorous crowd, said Grand Sierra Resort Corp. President Thomas Schrade.

Other celebrity investors include Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderrama, also stars of “That ‘70s Show;” Chris Masterson of “Malcolm in the Middle;” and Jamie Kennedy of “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment.”

Grand Sierra Resort officials announced plans in May to buy the Reno Hilton hotel for $150 million, convert it to hotel-condominiums and build a large indoor water park on the property.

The Hilton, northern Nevada’s largest hotel-casino with 1,995 rooms, will be renamed Grand Sierra Resort.
