Dos Caminos makes its triumphant return to Las Vegas today starting at 4 p.m. The restaurant, which used to be located at the Palazzo until Nov. 2011, takes over the former Agave space with its Mexican fare, including the infamous guacamole.
Corporate executive chef Ivy Stark, who wrote Dos Caminos Mexican Street Food, whipped the menu up while the kitchen will be overseen by executive chef Reed Osterholt.
Look for dishes such as the rib eye steak Alambre with applewood smoked bacon, cipollini onions, poblano chiles, arroz con crema and chimichurri sauce and the jumbo sea scallops with coconut jasmine rice, jicama, grilled pineapple and passion fruit cascabel mojo.
Once brunch starts up on March 23, look for chilaquiles verdes, baked tortilla chips casserole, sunny side-up eggs, chihuahua cheese, tomatillo salsa and Mexican French toast.
But that guacamole. The combined Dos Caminos locations use 500,000 avocados a year and serve 1,000 orders a day. It comes with a trio of salsas and warm corn tortilla chips and is offered as-is, or go crazy with jumbo lump crab-chipotle, mango, papaya-habanero or with bacon, chicharron and pickled jalapeño.
South of the Border cocktails also make the menu. Aside from margaritas and sangria, find a huge list of tequilas that can be ordered by the flight. Some of the seasonal organic margaritas include the Blue Pomegranate or the Frozen Prickly Pear Margarita.
Head to the bar for happy hour with half-priced appetizers, a $1 El Camino and frozen margaritas, $3 Coors Light and Pacifico and $19 sangria pitchers.
Dos Caminos is open seven days a week, serving dinner from 4 to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until midnight Friday and Saturday. Brunch, which starts March 23, goes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sunday, with a small selection of favorites on the sunset menu from 3 to 4 p.m. Look out for the happy hour menu in the bar Sunday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to close.
