Roy’s, the pan-Asian restaurant chain out of Hawaii, closed its last remaining Las Vegas restaurant at 620 E. Flamingo Road earlier this month, leaving a prime piece of restaurant real estate near Restaurant Row.
Fans loved the happy hour deals on short ribs, sliders, udon, fried rice and Mai Tais along with its roster of desserts including pineapple upside down cake.
The closing follows the 2013 shutdown of Roy’s other location at 8701 W. Charleston Blvd., now home to Bonefish Grill, another restaurant that is part of the Bloomin’ Brands Inc. restaurant group, which also owns Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and Outback Steakhouse.
Roy Yamaguchi opened the first Roy's in Honolulu back in 1988. He went on to win a James Beard Award for Best Pacific Northwest chef in 1993.
Roy’s still has 17 locations in California, Arizona, Illinois, Florida, Maryland and Texas.
