The sign out fronts says, "Closed for Renovation," but the truth is far from that. The now-shuttered Agave will become the new location of Dos Caminos, the Mexican restaurant formerly at the Palazzo.
Look for reclaimed barn wood on the walls and a soft, neutral palate instead of the garish Mexican colors of Agave when it opens in March. Dos Caminos plans to have candlelight inside and lanterns on the patio outside. Chimineyas, the Mexican fire pits, will also light the patio.
The menu remains the same with classic Mexican staples such as guacamole, empanadas and tacos as well as margaritas and sangria and an expansive tequila menu.
Dos Caminos has six locations, two outside of Vegas. The restaurant will be open seven days a week for dinner and brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
Dos Caminos at the Palazzo abruptly closed its doors Nov. 14, 2011, after a "bitter battle between operator Two Roads Las Vegas and its landlord." At the time, Las Vegas Sands Corp., which owns the Palazzo, sued Dos Caminos operator Two Roads for nonpayment of rent. Two Roads executives say Sands Corp. reneged on a long-term rental agreement the parties negotiated.
While rumors circulated earlier this year that Dos Caminos would become home to a new outlet from The Light Group, it is basically an events space and now houses the rehearsal room for Rock of Ages, the new musical opening at the Palazzo Dec. 18.
