Factory Place Hospitality Group and The Venetian Las Vegas have announced plans to open The Factory Kitchen at The Venetian, opening December 2018. The new location will mark the second for the Italian trattoria from downtown Los Angeles.
The space, designed by architect Thomas Schlesser of Design Bureaux, will be transformed into a 152-seat restaurant with touches of The Factory Kitchen’s signature orange, forest green and reclaimed wood tables, along with art deco-style light fixtures, concrete walls and plush grey banquettes lining the perimeter.
The Factory Kitchen is the product of a friendship between Matteo Ferdinandi, the CEO of Factory Place Hospitality Group, and Chef Angelo Auriana. Ferdinandi and Auriana share the vision of imparting their Italian roots through food and hospitality. The original location, serving traditional Italian recipes, opened its doors on October 24, 2013, in The Arts District, downtown Los Angeles. The Factory Kitchen took its name from the street it’s located on and the former factory building complex that hosts it, but the restaurant’s “soul” and its cuisine is Italian.
In the kitchen, Chef Auriana prepares traditional Italian dishes using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The menu at The Factory Kitchen highlights recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation within Italian families.
Beverage Director and Sommelier Francine Diamond-Ferdinandi has created the wine list for the new restaurant. Though Italian wines will be prevalent at The Factory Kitchen, additional wines from neighboring Western European countries and beyond are served. Additionally, the bar program at the restaurant will serve artisanal cocktails.
The Factory Kitchen Las Vegas will be open for lunch and dinner when it debuts December 2018 in The Venetian.
