There Back! New York based Dos Caminos has opened at its new location on Charleston Boulevard in Summerlin’s Canyon Pointe Plaza, March 11. The popular Mexican eatery is once again bringing its famed guacamole and tequila list back to Las Vegas.
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, while Executive Chef Reed Osterholt will be at the helm in the Las Vegas kitchen.
The Dos Caminos menu features classic Mexican staples of guacamole, empanadas and tacos, along with signature dishes including the Rib Eye Steak Alambre with applewood smoked bacon, cipollini onions, poblano chiles, arroz con crema and chimichurri sauce or the Jumbo Sea Scallops with coconut jasmine rice, jicama, grilled pineapple and passion fruit cascabel mojo. The menu also highlights brunch offerings as Chilaquiles Verdes, baked tortilla chips casserole, sunny side-up eggs, chihuahua cheese, tomatillo salsa and even Mexican French Toast.
Of course the critically acclaimed made-to-order guacamole is a must for any dish you may enjoy. Dos Caminos locations utilize 500,000 avocados a year and serve 1000 orders daily. This mouthwatering dish is served with a trio of salsas and warm corn tortilla chips and can be ordered in the traditional style, or in versions including Jumbo Lump Crab-Chipotle, Mango, Papaya-Habanero or with Bacon, Chicharron and Picked Jalapeno.
The cocktail menu is transports us “south of the border” with imaginative margaritas and sangria as well as an expansive hand-selected tequila menu featuring the best Mexico has to offer, which can be sampled in flights or one-by-one. Specialty cocktails include seasonal organic margaritas such as the Blue Pomegranate or the Frozen Prickly Pear Margarita.
Dos Caminos is open seven days a week, serving dinner from 4 p.m. – 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until midnight Friday and Saturday. On Saturday and Sunday beginning March 23, the restaurant will serve brunch from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. and a small selection of favorites on the sunset menu from 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. before dinner becomes available. A happy hour menu will be featured at the bar Sunday – Friday from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. – close.
Dos Caminos has been missed since it left its Las Vegas Strip location. Their return has locals and visitors alike dancing in Mariachi Band style celebrating their return.
