Closure of B&B Las Vegas restaurants and staff party in Carnevino

After Carnevino, B&B Ristorante and Otto Enoteca and Pizzeria served their last meals on Sunday – five days earlier than expected – the staff bid farewell with a party at Carnevino on Monday. Nicole brisson, the former Las Vegas COO of the company that will lead the new Eataly at Park MGM, surprised longtime Carnevino friends by selling some of their deliciously aged beef in cryovac packages ready to be frozen. We are told that Carnevino continues to search for a new home in Las Vegas now that Mario Batali is no longer associated with the company.

Brisson accepted a place on the Southern Nevada Health District board of directors, the first chief to hold such a position locally. This will likely be good news for members of the restaurant community who have long complained that the district has been slow to adopt reasonable guidelines for everything from modern cooking techniques like sous vide to the centuries-old curing practices used to make cold cuts or cheese. “I lived in Vegas for 15 years and made it my home,” she said. “I am delighted with this opportunity to be an integral part of the community. “

Asian night under the stars

Representatives from 15-20 restaurants in Las Vegas’ diverse Asian and Pacific Island food scene will host a Asian night market October 19 in the parking lot of the San Martin Campus of St. Rose Dominican Hospital on West Warm Springs Road. The lineup is still being worked out for the free event, which will feature street food for $ 7 or less per dish.
