BAR + BISTRO - Bluegrass Brunch

Hey Diners & Viners! I have known about B + B for a while now but last Sunday we stumbled across a band playing and had to check it out. We had our GSD, Zander, with us and found out they allow dogs on the patio too! The band was a Bluegrass band named "Out of the Desert" and we enjoyed them quite a bit, but not as much as Zander who fell asleep when they played. When they took a break, he was up and alert checking things out. Well, long story short, we are going back and inviting all of you to join us!

I need to limit this to 12 people because they require a group reservation with parties larger than that. Not to worry though, we will stagger another reservation for 12:30 - 1ish for those that get on the waiting list. I will just need someone else to call that reservation in and hold under their name. The patio is great but the covered part will keep reservations limited, because that area is smaller, so RSVP with integrity. As usual you WILL get the RSVP fee back upon arrival and I am setting the cancellation for 3-days prior.

So what about the food? We loved it! It is "an eclectic Latin fusion menu that reflects influences from Spain, Italy and France, following the shores of Morocco, Egypt, Israel and Lebanon. Every dish, every sauce, every meal, is homemade and meticulously prepared with the freshest of ingredients. We support our community and locally source ingredients whenever possible." Ahh, locally sourced ingredients. Now THAT is what Dining & Vining is all about!

Here is a review from Yelp: "I'm lucky I don't live closer to this place, because I'd be several pounds heavier and many times poorer. Everything I've had here has been delicious. The portions are just right for either sharing (depending on what else you've ordered) or keeping to yourself, the drink selection is good, and the atmosphere is quirky and artsy without being the least bit snobby or hipster. The service, while sometimes on the slow side (I'd like to think it's just the chefs taking more time to carefully prepare our food), has always been solid."

Speaking of moving closer, we will have moved into a little cottage within walking distance the two days before, so we may make the trek with Zander, but aren't sure yet. YEAH for walking to brunch! Another thing to note about the food is that the portions are a bit smaller and cost a little more, but for a dining al fresco experience in Las Vegas I think it is about right. Plan to spend a couple hours as well as service is a bit slow and with a group it will be slower. Why would you want to rush a good thing though, esp. with a band playing outdoors?

Cheers -

Kelly & Davita

      Sorry for the late response. It is a deposit to hold your place. You get it back upon arrival. Cut outs No Shows almost entirely. Let me know if you still want to attend. We have room for one more.

    Maxwell's 2year old birthday is that day - we might have to bring a doggie approved birthday cake for him and his friends :)

    April 4, 2013

    • Kelly T.

      Oh fun! The doggie headcount is up to 5 now so we are checking with staff today to ensure having 16 (11+5) is cool. Just in case.

    Hey Kelly,
    We just realized this will be our doggie Maxwell's 2 year old birthday - can we bring our two Bichon Frises with us to this brunch?

      You sure can. I let them know ahead of time that we have a dog head count as well.
