Dos Caminos

There are currently three branches of Dos Caminos in New York City. 

BR Guest, the owner of Dos Caminos and Strip House, has struck a deal with Tilman Fertitta — the owner of Landry’s Inc. and the host of CNBC’s Billion Dollar Buyer — which will close in a few weeks.

Fertitta’s net worth is estimated at $2.6 billion by Forbes. He owns 500 restaurants in the country including Mortons and Mastro’s steakhouse chains, Bubba Gump Shrimp, Rainforest Café, and Downtown Aquarium. Fertitta also owns the Golden Nugget casino hotels in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the New York Post reported.

Although the company has recently closed Ruby Foo’s and Ocean Grill, Atlantic Grill and Bluewater Grill are still operating in New York City.

Fertitta is currently Houston-based, but has a residence in SoHo in Manhattan, his general counsel Steve Scheinthal told the Post. “He loves New York and this will give him more time to spend in the city.”

BR Guest will still continue as the same company, just under new ownership.

“We plan on keeping all of the restaurants,” Scheinthal added. “We don’t plan on changing anything.”
