Beso at CityCenter closed; making way for restaurant with feminine appeal
30 August 2012
Restaurant and casino investor Tilman Fertitta has closed Beso Steakhouse at CityCenter on the Las Vegas Strip and is transforming it into a new concept appealing to women.
Fertitta owns the Golden Nugget casinos in Las Vegas, Laughlin and Atlantic City and restaurants including the Landry’s Seafood House and Morton’s the Steakhouse chains.
Last year, he bought the assets of Beso Las Vegas out of bankruptcy under a deal in which actress Eva Longoria kept a minority interest.
The closure last weekend of Beso Las Vegas will clear the way for conversion of the space by Fertitta and Longoria into a restaurant and nightclub concept appealing to women called She by Morton’s.
"She restaurant integrates fine dining with fashion and music to create a female-friendly experience," She restaurant said in a statement Wednesday.
It’s set to open New Year’s Eve at Crystals mall in CityCenter.
Crystals, Longoria and another restaurant figure involved in She, Jonas Lowrance, in the meantime remain tied up in litigation with Ronen and Mali Nachum over the Nachums’ removal from the original Beso Las Vegas Steakhouse company.
In another Las Vegas Strip restaurant development reported earlier by Eater.com, the Yard House chain plans to open a location next year near the High Roller observation wheel in the Linq retail and entertainment center under construction behind the Flamingo and the Imperial Palace. The Linq is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp.
