Restaurant Closings

I have a couple of questions:

  1. Is it true that Circo at Bellagio will be closing in order for Hyde to expand and that Olives will also be closing?

  2. I thought that Le Provençal at Paris was closing early this year, but I can book a table for my trip in May. Does anyone have an update?


It was announced that Olives would be staying. I've not heard anything but rumors about Circo. There's been no official comment that I've seen. I've not heard anything about Le Provencal, but we can try to pop by Paris soon.

Thanks Becca

It appears that you can't book a table at Circo from May 15 with Open Table. Hopefully Bellagio won't loose one of its original restaurants.
