American Fish Now Closed to Make Way for Bardot Brasserie

Michael Mina's American Fish, the restaurant that embraced camping styles of cooking, closed at Aria. Come winter, the restaurant reopens as Bardot Brasserie, a new French restaurant from Michael Mina that pays homage to the café culture of Paris.

American Fish looked like a 19th century lodge and cooked its dishes using salt baking, wood grilling, cast-iron griddling and ocean-water poaching techniques.

Chef Joshua Smith, a staple in the Mina kitchen who headed up the now-defunct Seablue at the MGM Grand, helms the kitchen.

Much like American Fish, Bardot will have a cocktail program, but it will embrace Parisian stalwarts such as Harry's Bar and Bar Hemingway.

Also on tap for Bardot Brasserie, a roving shellfish cart, foie gras en croute, steak frites and other brasserie fare.
