Pesceria to Replace Postrio at the Venetian's St. Mark's Square?

Italian seafood is definitely coming to the resort. Somewhere.

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.
