Sad news from chef Daniel Boulud. He sends word that his restaurant DB Brasserie at the Venetian closes in mid-January 2017, after the Consumer Electronics Show.
"We have made a common decision with the Sands group that in mid-January 2017 we will be closing db Brasserie at The Venetian," Boulud writes in a press statement. "While we have always enjoyed the electric energy of Las Vegas, and working among many renowned chefs on the Strip, at this time we want to put all our focus on our other restaurants, our partners, and the future developments of our group. Sands has been a great partner and we value our relationship and our success together in Singapore with db Bistro & Oyster Bar at the Marina Bay Sands. We look forward to continued success with always the same personal care, passion, and excellence we stand for in all our restaurants."
Boulud made his triumphant return to Las Vegas in 2014 with the 280-seat restaurant designed like a classic Beaux Arts train station. Cement green and white tile in a hexagonal pattern give that Paris Metro vibe in the bar area while an oak floor sits beneath a faux skylight.
Get there for $1 West Coast oysters during happy hour, beef Wellington Rossini, crispy duck confit and brunch before it closes. That Expat with Maker’s Mark and an ice cube with ginger and vanilla is the best cocktail in Vegas.
Rumored to take its place — Chica, a Latin restaurant from John Kunkel’s 50 Eggs, which already has Yardbird Southern Table & Bar next door.
