DB Brasserie Is 'This Year's Most Exciting Food Moment'

Brock Radke says the return of Daniel Boulud is "this year's most exciting food moment." He suggests ordering the seafood poissons fumés and the smoked sable rillettes as starters at DB Brasserie at the Venetian. The Yankee burger "is what a hamburger should be." For an entree, the linguine de sud. He says, "Boulud and [David] Middleton distinguish DB with creativity, a style and flair much different than anything at the Venetian or elsewhere on the Strip." [LVW]

Al Mancini ponders how healthy the dishes are at Bachi HLK, which stands for Healthy Life Kitchen. The new breakfast spot favorites include a wild-mushroom hash and "the restaurant's take on a Monte Cristo sandwich—made with roast turkey and Gruyère—was also outstanding." On the downside, the chicken and waffles ("the sweet chili sauce on the strips of fried chicken was heavy and overpowering"), the chicken apple sausages ("far too sweet for my taste") and the turkey on the Benny ("it tends to drown out the Canadian bacon"). And while the restaurant may not be healthy, "the food is unquestionably much better than what you'll find at a typical breakfast place." [VS]

Michael Uzmann heads to B&B Ristorante at the Venetian and says that "not a single bite of the food that followed would prove short of exemplary." He recommends the ravioli ("so delicate, stuffed and well sauced that it hardly seemed to matter until the plate was wiped spotless"), the spring lamb over smoky artichoke puree and the roulade of rabbit with flan of carrots ("it would be an exercise in futility to determine [which] was a superior secondi"). He gives it four stars out of five. [EE]

Uzmann also visited F.A.M.E., the new Asian market at The Linq. He sampled a trio of karaage, bourban and orange chicken ("I was immediately impressed by the crunchy sapor of the first"), his first Fukuburger ("moist and rich even before being gilded with a slightly overcooked egg and punchy accoutrements") and "duck and pork crispy yet supple beneath a touch of acid-sweet sauce." He describes the latter as a "$12 plate worth the drive from Spring Mountain to The Strip as opposed to the other way around." He gives it three-and-a-half stars out of five. [EE]

HKR says to go to Streetcar Po'Boys "for the food." In her no overall grade review, she gives the food an A, the atmosphere a C and the service a B. [LVRJ]
