B&B Burger & Beer, the restaurant at the front of the Venetian from Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, closes on Sept. 30. Parent company B&B Hospitality Group indicated the move was in anticipation of the opening of Eataly at the Park MGM in late 2018.
B&B’s fourth Las Vegas restaurant opened in 2013, taking over the short-lived Rattlecan space from Sammy DeMarco. The menu features the Drive-Thru Burger, one of the best burgers in Las Vegas.
The duo also plans to renovate B&B Ristorante, their Italian restaurant at the Venetian. Batali says that the makeover will make the restaurant more “light and feel a little more bar-y and casual.” Cooking will take place in front of the guests as well. …the food will be the same kind of Batali-Bastianich stuff. You know what you’re getting, and maybe it’s not recognized as a born-in-Italy dish but Italians will taste it and know it’s authentic through its simplicity and purity.”
