After sabering off the start of Vegas Uncork’d week ion Thursday afternoon, chef Daniel Boulud headed to his new restaurant DB Brasserie located inside the Venetian, where master chefs gathered to celebrate the renowned chef’s return to Las Vegas. The evening began with a reception in the bar and lounge before a ribbon cutting with chef Daniel Boulud,  Chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp. Sheldon Adelson, Dr. Miriam Adelson and other hotel and restaurant executives ceremoniously opened the main dining room. Following the ribbon cutting, guests mingled and enjoyed champagne and Dalmore signature cocktails while tasting a selection of items from the DB Brasserie menu including signature dishes such as escargot spaetzle, Hamachi cru, grilled swordfish, Tunisian lamb duo and spiced lamb flatbread among other creations. An array of sweet treats including almond and strawberry tartelettes, mini versions of the pistachio-cherry sundae and warm madeleines all complimented the brasserie classics.

Guests were treated to a surprise when Buddy “The Cake Boss” Valastro, who also has Buddy V’s Ristorante and Carlo’s Bakery on the Venetian property, arrived in true Vegas style with a showgirl on each arm to present Daniel with a welcome “back” to Las Vegas cake.

Guests included chefs Thomas Keller, Jean-Georges Vongerichte, Nobu Matsuhisa, Paul Bartolotta, Francois Payard and Sam “Sammy D” Demarco, host of Travel Channel’s “Chow Masters.”
