Daniel Boulud's plans to bring DBGB Kitchen & Bar to the Venetian have shifted, and the concept is no longer destined for the former Valentino space there. But it gets better. Instead, Boulud will open DB Brasserie at the end of March or beginning of April, his publicist confirms.
Boulud had DB Brasserie at Wynn Las Vegas where Lakeside now sits from 2005 to 2010. "DB Brasserie is an updated version of Daniel's original Vegas outpost, bringing seasonal French cuisine and signature brasserie dishes with a modern twist," his publicist told Eater Vegas.
A second DBGB Kitchen & Bar location will still open in Washington, D.C., early next fall.
Already, DB Brasserie has a chef in mind. Dave Middleton leaves Marche Bacchus to take over the Boulud kitchen. Eating Las Vegas reports that Alex Stratta returns to Marche Bacchus after a short stint at Scarpetta in Los Angeles.
