    There was a thread started a few months back about the opening of DB Brasserie (Venetian) but it seemed to go off course a bit. But now that the place has been open for a while, perhaps we have more members who have eaten at db Brasserie.

    If so, how about sharing your experiences? Good, bad, neutral? How does it compare with the usual suspects like Bouchon, Comme Ça, Mon Ami Gabi?

    Merci :beer:

    I ate here a few months ago when I stayed at the Palazzo. We went for lunch. I got the beef duo (short ribs and piece of steak, I think) and french onion soup with a bottle of champagne for 3. The soup was really strong. It was good, but would have been better if they watered it down a little bit. The short rib was awesome. One of my favorite to date. The steak was okay. It was a little funny tasting.

    Overall, the service was great. The food was good, but not to die for. The short rib is something I would go back for.

    I was there back in June. It was good. Very nice country pate. Good wine list. Steak frites was okay. Walking out, I felt like I should have just gone to Bouchon. It was solid, friendly, and enjoyable ... but not my favorite.

    I may have been the one who started that thread. We went for a late lunch in May and were the only ones in the place. The service was stellar. Seemed to me the kitchen hadn't hit their stride yet, but the food was still very good. We'd definitely go back. Easily as good as Mon Ami Gabi, probably on par with Bouchon, but a little less stuffy.

    Thai Calamari with a kaffir lime aioli. This seemed like an odd choice on the menu, but was the winning dish in our minds.

    Linquini De Sud. Shrimp, clams, arugula and bottarga with lemon saffron pasta.
