Valentino not closing quite so soon

As reported on Eater:

Valentino Lands a Reprieve from July Shutter

Valentino, the Italian restaurant from Piero Selvaggio at the Venetian, received a reprieve of sorts. The restaurant was originally scheduled to close on July 14, but now comes word it will remain open until Nov. 2.

The 13-year-old restaurant from features chef Luciano Pellegrini's James Beard Foundation Award winning fare.

This does lead to a delay on the start of construction for Daniel Boulud's DBGB Kitchen & Bar, rumored to take over the space in 2014, although Boulud says he has not picked a location yet.

In May, Selvaggio put his 41-year-old Santa Monica location on the market for $4.9 million for everything including "the real estate, the furniture, fixtures and equipment and liquor license."

  1. Thanks for posting that. I've never been to the LV location, but many fond memories of Santa Monica.

    That fills slot #3 for dinner next week:)
