You weren’t necessarily asking for it to come back into your life, but nonetheless SBE’s XIV will return. The restaurant, originally intended as Michael Mina’s West Hollywood showroom (a la The Bazaar with Jose Andres), will relaunch as some sort of party going down, well, exactly where it belongs: As a once-a-month “Summer Sessions” event held on the patio of The Colony and in SBE properties in both Vegas and Miami. The fun (?) returns on May 20, Eater reports. Now, if only we knew which XIV would appear, the one with burgers and floats, complicated tasting menu tiers, gussied up comfort eats, or fire-breathing circus freaks. [ELA; Earlier]
