The music may not stand out in volume during your meal at B&B Ristorante, as the main dining room buzzes with diners during prime dinner hours, but if you listen to the music piped through the speakers, you’ll notice a soundtrack unlike what you’d find in most fine-dining establishments. Celebrity chef Mario Batali prefers an upbeat music mix in his restaurants, and to that end, you’ll hear a more contemporary rock soundtrack complementing your meal. So while you munch on grilled octopus or bone marrow ravioli, you’ll hear Elvis Costello and Tom Petty pumping through the speakers, courtesy of iPod playlists often hand-picked by Batali himself. The rock soundtrack has become a signature in many of Batali’s restaurants, and his Las Vegas outlet, B&B Ristorante, rocks diners with both lively food and lively tunes.
