New York-based restaurant company BR Guest announced the closure of Dos Caminos, its Summerlin restaurant, Vegas Seven reports. This is the second time the Las Vegas restaurant has closed. The high end Mexican restaurant was open only a few months, and after it moved locations from a huge space in the Palazzo, its future did not look bright.
The eatery originally opened in February 2008, and abruptly closed its Palazzo location in November 2011. This first Las Vegas location was the restaurant’s fourth location in the country, but the first outside of New York City.
The restaurant than moved to a location on West Charleston, and some argue that the location was not ideal. Others, like Max Jacobson from Vegas Seven, argue the concept of the restaurant is at fault for its quick closing. Las Vegas is known as one of the best cities for tacos, burritos, and good Mexican food due to the high Latino population and proximity to Mexico. Many of these casual joints are cheap, and as a result, it's believed that the market for upscale Mexican is dwindling.
