We had visited Dos Caminos many times when it was located in the Palazzo Resort in Las Vegas and were disappointed to say the least when they closed. Several months ago we got word from inside sources that it would be returning to Las Vegas in the Summerlin area. We are excited that Dos Caminos will to Las Vegas as Stephen Hanson and B.R. Guest Hospitality plan to open a location on Charleston Boulevard in Summerlin’s Canyon Pointe Plaza in early 2013. Known for its inventive Mexican fare and vibrant bar scene, Dos Caminos looks forward to once again serving their famed guacamole and more to Las Vegas locals and visitors.
Corporate Executive Chef Ivy Stark, author of Dos Caminos Mexican Street Food, will oversee the menu for Las Vegas, as she does with the four locations in New York City and the outposts in Atlantic City, New Jersey and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Joining her in the kitchen will be Las Vegas Executive Chef Reed Osterholt, alumni of the brand.
The Dos Caminos menu builds on classic Mexican staples of guacamole, empanadas and tacos, along with signature dishes, while the cocktail menu is transported “south of the border” with imaginative margaritas and sangria as well as an expansive hand-selected tequila menu.
The space will feature a soft, neutral palate highlighted by a reclaimed barn wood wall. Candles will flicker throughout the restaurant and lanterns inside and out will create a sky of lights. The outdoor space will be warmed by chimineyas, Mexican fire pits accented by bright fabrics, and inside the bar will showcase several televisions for sports watching as well as gaming stations.
Dos Caminos Las Vegas is scheduled to open in early March of 2013 and will be open seven days a week for dinner and brunch on Saturday and Sunday. We cannot wait to visit Dos Caminos once again and enjoy what will be Summerlin’s newest hot spot .
