NEVADA - LEARN HISTORY THROUGH LIBATIONS WITH THE MOB MUSEUM’S PROHIBITION COCKTAIL COLLECTION


LAS VEGAS (July 2018) - The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is changing the way guests learn about  American history through the tempting cocktail menu offered at The Underground speakeasy. At the helm of the cocktail program for the Museum’s new, comprehensive Prohibition history exhibition is Beverage Director Clint Thoman. His cocktail recipes are inspired by the 1920s and 1930s.  

With concoctions spiked with the Museum’s own house-distilled Moonshine to classics made with vodka, gin, bourbon and rum, Thoman’s menu features items such as the Lock & Key, made with gin, tea, vermouth, blueberries and sugar - served unassumingly in an innocent-looking teacup. Meanwhile, The Underground Old-Fashioned is mixed with bourbon, vanilla bean, brown sugar and bitters and comes clandestinely concealed; guests who order this classic are presented with a rocks glass and a book which, when opened, hides a flask filled with the libation, ready to be poured over ice. Even the presentation of the cocktails plays to Prohibition times.

NEVADA - ANDRE'S BISTRO & BAR, THE NEXT GENERATION OF ANDRÉ ROCHAT'S LEGACY, TO OPEN EARLY 2017 IN LAS VEGAS


LAS VEGAS (December 2016) - In early 2017 - André Rochat's legacy will continue with the opening of Andre's Bistro & Bar, for a brand-new generation of food lovers. Owned and operated by the dining and nightlife group, Stacked Hospitality, the new location returns Andre's to its roots by becoming his first neighborhood restaurant opening since the debut of his eponymous, groundbreaking restaurant in 1980 in Downtown Las Vegas. Andre's Bistro & Bar blends French Bistro and American Tavern cuisine for lunch, dinner and brunch—all served in an intimate, neighborhood setting.

NEVADA - B&B RISTORANTE AT THE VENETIAN TO HOST LAS VEGAS' ONLY OIL DINNER, SHOWCASING THE FIRST PRESSING OF EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM TENUTA DI CAPEZZANA ON JAN. 25



LAS VEGAS (December 2016) – B&B Ristorante at The Venetian will host a first for Las Vegas: a multi-course feast centered around the first pressing of extra virgin olive oil from the Medici-era villa, Tenuta di Capezzana (Italian for the "estate of Capezzana"). The dinner will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m.

Guiding the guests through this journey incorporating unique flavors and dishes will be Beatrice Contini-Bonacossi, whose family owns Capezzana, the 345-acre farm that has produced olive oil and wine since the times of Charlemagne (742 - 814). During the dinner, she will discuss the unique history of the estate, as well as the oil-making process.

Located in Carmignano, Tuscany, at Capezzana, olives are picked before the first frost. Within 24 hours of the harvest, they are immediately crushed, which reduces the possibility of oxidation of the picked fruit. Continuous cycle olive processing is Capezzana’s extraction technique of choice. The mash is then put through a double centrifugal decanting, a milder means of separating the solids from the oil. The oil is then stored for a few weeks to decant naturally. Capezzana’s processing produces an extra virgin olive oil remarkably low in oleic acid, rarely exceeding 0.2 percent. The unfiltered, estate-grown oil is then bottled and sold. Its tasting notes include an aroma of fresh-cut grass and almond. A buttery, mild, fruity beginning fills the mouth with a delicate flavor of herbs and green olive with a delightful spicy note at the finish. 

The one-night-only menu will include:

First Course
Trio of crostini-chicken liver, cavolo nero and traditional “Fett’unta”

Second Course
Insalata Pinzimonio

Third Course
Tuscan Ribollita

Fourth Course
Tordelli with Swiss chard and ricotta

Fifth Course
Dry aged Bistecca Fiorentina carved tableside with fagioli a la fiasco and sautéed mixed baby kale

Sixth Course
Schiacciata alla Fiorentina and Olive Oil Gelato

"Earlier this year, I was fortunate to travel to Italy to see the estate and watch the pressing in person," says Chef Nicole Brisson, culinary director, Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group. "Our team had a wonderful time partnering with Manicaretti Italian Food Importers to put together this menu and look forward to seeing our guests for this unique dinner after the new year."

The price is $165 per person plus gratuity and includes dinner and wine pairings. Click here to purchase tickets. Limited seating is available. Following the conclusion of the dinner, Capezzana oils will be available for purchase.
