Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group Announce the Opening of B&B Burger & Beer

Mario Batali Proudly Announces 4th Las Vegas Restaurant Concept

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) - As part of the kick off to The Venetian and The Palazzo's summer-long Carnevale festival, Mario Batali announced the upcoming opening of his and Joe Bastanich's new restaurant -- B&B Burger & Beer.

Opening this September in The Venetian Las Vegas, B&B Burger & Beer's casual 120-seat interior dining room will feature bright colors and more than 20 televisions for sports fans. Outside, there will be a 2,000 square foot outdoor, 100-seat patio facing Las Vegas Boulevard.

In true Batali & Bastianich style, the atmosphere can only be trumped by consistently delicious food. To that end, the menu will feature local ingredients and the beer-driven beverage menu will be comprised of beers from Las Vegas and Southern California craft breweries. The burgers will be made from Carnevino's high-quality American beef, served on a perfectly charred bun, with signature sides, robust salads, and standout shakes.

This is B&BHG's 6th collaboration with the Las Vegas Sands Corp (NYSE: LVS), including three restaurants in Las Vegas (B&B Ristorante and Otto Enoteca Pizzeria in The Venetian and Carnevino Italian Steakhouse in The Palazzo) as well as two properties in the Marina Bay Sands Hotel Casino in Singapore (Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza).

"Las Vegas Sands has been a great partner over the years and with their support, Joe and I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to do something we've never done before," said Mario Batali.

As with B&BHG's other restaurants, B&B Burger & Beer will maintain the company's commitment to sustainability. Through initiatives such as the no-bottled water policy, energy efficient lighting, and whole-animal purchasing, B&B Burger & Beer will strive to be energy efficient, conserve water, and reduce waste wherever possible.

The Venetian and The Palazzo are known as a culinary capital of Las Vegas, featuring the nation's largest collection of fine-dining restaurants under one roof.

"Among the world-class attributes of The Venetian and The Palazzo, our culinary traditions have been at the heart of our experience," said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo, and Sands Expo. "And with Chef Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich in our family, they will continue to help us to set the standard for culinary excellence in Las Vegas! What an honor it is to have another quality B&B venue at The Venetian."
