For those who love Vegas restaurants, French cuisine and 1950's Japanese cinema, VT is proud to present our VegasEats review of DB Brasserie at Venetian, in four scenes. - Ed

DB Brasserie was kind of nostalgic of an idea for me. I had always wanted to eat at chef Daniel Boulud's outpost at Wynn, but never took the time before they shuttered for good. So when the boys, fresh off a #VT10 high asked me to join them I booked an extra night for what was sure to be wine consumption that would hinder a late night desert drive.

The restaurant is located in the row of eateries that abridge the Venetian and Palazzo such as Delmonico and AquaKnox, quite easy to get to via foot from Palazzo's labrynthian parking garage. The room was lovely, if sparsely full, and had a bit of a Bouchon-esque vibe as pointed out by JohnH.

Service was quick and pleasant and I, like everyone at the table save JohnH decided to go with the Prix Fixe menu paired with an exceptional by the glass Bordeaux.

The first course was a chilled soup that I cannot totally remember the ingredients of although I'm guessing it was artichoke. The puree was fine, cold, and delicious, and the accoutrements paired perfectly with a bit of texture. As Lorne Malvo would say about his coming trip to Vegas in FX's Fargo..."Aces."

Next up, the classic Coq au Vin with house made pasta. The pasta was a bit sparse but proved to be just filling enough. The chicken was fork tender and falling off the bone. I'm not an on the bone kinda guy when it comes to my prepared meals but this was outstanding stuff. Rich and hearty yet light. French done by someone who knows it well.

Last course of the meal for myself was a Black and White Fondant with Verbena Ice Cream. The dessert wasn't remarkable by any stretch but it was an excellent close to what was becoming a very highly praised dinner at that price point.

Oh, and bonus points to DB Brasserie for the performance art going on in the dining room. Did you know that it's acceptable to exercise light BDSM on your dining partner in their establishments? I wonder what their pet policy is...
