Turns out we won’t have to wait for the restaurant to improve after all. Shortly after the recap of our night out, Timpano’s parent company, E-Brands, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Soon after that, Timpano Tavern shut its doors forever. Ironic they couldn’t sear tuna in less than two hours but let go of staff and put up that fancy velvet rope in a heartbeat.
Another E-Brand restaurant, Aquaknox, is next door to the place formerly known as Timpano Tavern formerly known as David Burke and not only remains open but seems to be doing well. In addition to solid reviews we saw a long wait mid-week.
Given its prime location near the Venetian Showroom and Blue Man Group ticket booth we don’t expect the space to sit idle for long. The Venetian and Palazzo already have a wide variety of dining options but what’s missing that would you like to see open there? Let us know!
In the meantime, we must note that Humpty Dumpty had his great fall. While the mighty eggman survived the closing of David Burke, he has been replaced for now with these two egg-white chairs. RIP eggman. RIP. Goo goo g’joob.
