Pesceria will serve their spin on Italian seafood at the Venetian next year, but the question is exactly where? The latest creation from Miami-based V&E Restaurant Group, who also operates the 24-hour Café Americano at Caesars Palace, is confirmed to be headed into the Grand Canal Shoppes section of the resort.
Early construction paperwork lists the project as "PESCERIA@ST. MARKS SQUARE." Currently there is only one space large enough to add a new restaurant, the former home of Wolfgang Puck's Postrio, which shuttered abruptly in April. Upon departure, Puck revealed the monthly rent approached $100,000 a month for this corner of the square.
No arrival timetable or scope of the menu beyond seafood has been announced, but the project is promoted by V&E as "coming soon." The very appropriate name is a nod to the Campo della Pescheria fish market, located close to the Rialto Bridge in Venice. In Las Vegas, a replica of the bridge leads guests from the Strip into the resort and toward the Madame Tussauds attraction.
