Chef Todd Harrington has departed the Downtown Grand and is catching some sun in Miami Beach, Florida, these days. But have no fear—he’s still working hard to make Las Vegas a more delicious town. Harrington’s been charged with bringing Miami’s James Beard-nominated Yardbird Southern Table & Bar to the Venetian. The restaurant is known for its upscale Southern cuisine, and the local incarnation is slated for an early 2015 opening in the space that was formerly home to Pinot Brasserie, next door to Daniel Boulud’s DB Brasserie.

Harrington is no stranger to importing a successful restaurant concept to Las Vegas. He was charged with bringing Michel Richard’s Central to Caesars Palace. Sadly, word on the street is that the embattled concept will be gone soon—the restaurant’s website, CentralLV.com, appears to have already been taken down. Central is rumored to be replaced by a new Caesars-run concept we’re hearing will be called Three Sisters Kitchen. Caesars reps declined comment, saying they have nothing new to announce.
