Less than 24 hours after revealing a new restaurant for Montelago Village at Lake Las Vegas comes a rumor the village's long time restaurant anchor has shuttered.
Bernard's Bistro run by chef Bernard Tordiman is no longer accepting reservations and all mention of the Lake Las Vegas location has been scrubbed from the restaurant's web presence and the 78-year old chef's online biography.
Tordiman debuted his second, still in business, bistro location restaurant in Henderson almost a year ago, taking over the former Noodle ChaCha space and serving the chef's signature California-French cuisine. The Lake Las Vegas space was noted for its interior decor with tributes to Frank Sinatra and doomed passenger liner RMS Titanic.
The original Bernard's Bistro debuted in 2007 and has weathered the turbulent and ongoing economic ride that continues to affect all Montelago Village tenants. Rumors suggest the decision to shutter rests firmly with the restaurant owners.
The departure leaves the village's remaining dining options as tapas from Sunset & Vines, Sonrisa Grill's Mexican cuisine, Italian from Luna Rossa, the casual Before Sunset Cafe, Auld Dubliner's pub grub and the debut this February of Brooklyn's casual American fare.
