THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Carnevino Restaurant Review

: Taking cues from the Tuscan Chianina tradition, Carnevino at The Palazzo celebrates beef, beginning with the giant statue of a bull at the entrance of the restaurant. The spacious room is understated but bustling, and has the vibe of a true Vegas steakhouse. Starters include the affettati misti for the table, with servings of mortadella, lardo, coppa and salami Calabrese. Pan-seared duck breast comes with huckleberry agrodolce, frisée and confit; among the pasta selections is bucatini all'amatriciana. The menu’s shining star is truly the beef. All from domestic sources and bred hormone- and antibiotic-free, the beef is dry-aged, then rubbed with sea salt, black pepper and fresh rosemary. The result of such careful treatment is simply a good and natural-tasting steak. An abundant rib-eye for two comes with a nicely charred crust, and cooked as ordered. Other hits include the beef tartare, bound with olive oil instead of egg for a fruitier finish. Partner Joe Bastianich's wine list, predominantly Italian and heavy on the reds, is built right into the menu, completing the vino portion of the name. Mini bombolini, or sugar-coated donuts, are always a favorite to end the meal.
