Pinot Brasserie Review:
Pinot Brasserie is a truly European-themed restaurant, complete with red booths, bistro style chairs, tray ceilings with thick crown molding, and lots of gilded accents. Large topiaries add a live element to the restaurant, not that it needs it. Pinot Brasserie is pleasantly filled with a lively crowd. It's the perfect place for large parties or intimate parties of two, depending on where you sit.
The server greets you with fresh baked French-style rolls, which are much needed when you order the escargot. A light garlic beurre blanc smothers tender snails and is served with a light frisee salad and herbed crostini.
Other appetizers include a Caesar salad with both chopped leaves and whole leaves artfully plated in a circular crouton.The good part: the salad is served with whole white anchovies.The saltiness of the anchovies is a perfect juxtaposition to the lemony dressing.
Pinot Brasserie does an excellent rendition of a pan-seared foie gras. This take is served with julienned celeriac and frisee and plated in a white truffle vinaigrette. The tender foie gras has large sea scallops underneath, making the dish ultra creamy and rich.
A charcuterie plate with duck prosciutto, salamis, mortadella, pearl onions and cornichons is offered for more simple deconstructed fare.
For entrees, try a tender whitefish in a mild lemon caper sauce served with green beans and fingerling potatoes. The whitefish is cooked to perfection, with a soft flaky texture.
The veal ossobuco is served in a peppery sauce over a huge helping of farfalle pasta. The fall-off-the-bone tender veal shank is moist. There are cuts of beef offered like filet mignon, rib-eye, and chateaubriand for two.
There are also specialty cocktails, beers, aperitifs and wines available.
With a prime location inside the Venetian and an appetizing menu that can relate to a variety of tastes, Pinot Brasserie has a lot going for it.
