3 Las Vegas Mario Batali restaurants closing sooner than expected

If you want to get one final meal at Carnevino Italian Steakhouse, B&B Ristorante or Otto Enoteca e Pizzeria, you’ll have to act fast. The three B&B Hospitality Group restaurants will close a little earlier than expected, serving their final customers on Sunday. That’s five days earlier than previously announced.

Nicole Brisson, B&B’s director of Las Vegas operations, says the move is necessary to accommodate a smooth transition out of The Venetian and Palazzo. All three are still taking weekend reservations.

The restaurants announced their closures in May, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against founding partner Mario Batali.
