My friends and I got together in Las Vegas the last weekend of March, 2013 and some of us decided to dine at Mario Batali's B&B Ristorante one night. The group was too big so we were seated in two large tables of between 10 to 12 diners each.
For appetizer, I had the B&B Salumi. It was good but a bit on the light side. I am used to traditional Italian style where they load you up with lots of antipasti but not here.
They however totally redeemed themselves with the Beef Cheek Ravioli with Black Truffles and Crushed Duck liver for my second dish. The taste is something that everyone should try at least once. The ravioli filling is not a lot nor heavy but just enough to give you a good tasting of it without being overpowering and being too heavy on your stomach. But just enough to make you want to look for it again the next time you are there.
This was then followed by a double cut of Veal Chops that totally send me over the top. The conversation and drinks with good friends plus the food have come together so unobtrusively that everything felt just right. I am sure this is due in part with the friendly staff that is always there to fill up your glass, put down your plate of food at the same time and remove any used dishes without having to be asked.
By this time, I was very happy with my meal and a simple coffee and a little sweetness would have sufficed. But what I thought was going to be a choice of ice cream or sorbet was actually a creation of both with a base of Blackberry sorbet and a topping of Chocolate and Espresso gelato. A strong ending to a great evening of fine dining.
