Staff changes @ Picasso in Las vegas?

LVI Aug 7, 2006 07:46 PM

I was dumbfounded to find out that the long time GM of Picasso, Mario Daniele is no longer at the restaurant. I sent an email to both Mario and Desi, one of the outstanding sommeliers at Picasso, and both emails were kicked back. Then I called restaurant reservations and they said they were no longer there. Does anybody have any info on changes? It is a shame for Picasso because without personnel like Mario and Desi, Picasso will lose a tremendous advantage it had over its competition, customer service!

        He decided to take some time off and will do a little traveling.

          Nope, Desi will be at Charlie Trotter's new place at the Venetian Palazzo.
