Fans of Daniel Boulud only have about another week and a half before the French chef closes his restaurant at the Venetian. DB Brasserie plans to shutter for good after the final dinner service on Sunday, Jan. 8.
That means no more steak frites or duck confit. Guests have options for dinner from Wednesday, Dec. 28, to Tuesday, Jan. 3, and Sunday, Jan. 8, from 5 to 11 p.m. The restaurant closes Jan. 4-7 for a private event.
The local discount of 30 percent off runs through Sunday, Jan. 8, as well.
Boulud tells Vegas Seven that he originally wanted to do a less expensive concept in the space. “… I don’t think it was the right concept. I don’t think we agreed on the right concept. … I wanted to be more casual. That was not what the hotel wanted. But I can only blame myself for not having done what I wanted to do originally: much more casual, much lower price point, much more French-American in a way.”
DB Brasserie opened in April 2014, marking a return to Las Vegas for chef Boulud, who once had a restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas as well. Boulud continues to operate DB Bistro & Oyster Bar at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
In 2017, Chica from neighboring Yardbird’s 50 Eggs takes over the space. Top Chef Masters’ chef Lorena Garcia created the menu that includes Latin American cuisine, with influences from Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina, among others. The Venezuelan-born chef has restaurants in airports in Miami and Atlanta as well as two cookbooks.
