Pioneering Strip fine dining chef Alex Stratta is creating a new Italian steakhouse concept set to open at the Gramercy, the retail, dining and residential development opening this fall at the 215 and Russell Road. Expect fresh pasta, flatbreads from a wood-burning oven and a raw bar at approachable prices.

DB Brasserie at Venetian has launched a new daily happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. featuring draft beer for $4, well drinks for $7, wine selections from $5 to $7, and small plates including yellowtail with avocado, tarte flambée or grilled lamb merguez sausage for $6. DB also recently unveiled a 30-minute express lunch and two- or three-course lunch prix fixe menus ($25-$32).

We recently honored Stripsteak and chef Gerald Chin with a well-deserved Best of Vegas award. You can experience the cooking that won the award August 13 at 7:30 p.m., when a five-course menu from Chin and his crew is paired with beverages from Anchor Brewing Company and Anchor Distilling Company. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased at 702-632-7200.

Three Square’s Fall Restaurant Week returns August 22-28, when many top dining destinations create special menus at great prices to benefit the local food bank. This season’s event kicks off with a party at Mesa Grill—which is celebrating 10 years—at 6 p.m. August 21. Tickets are $75, also benefitting Three Square, and can be purchased at 702-731-7778.
