Shuttered for eight years, a name from the past has popped up within paperwork filed to create a new restaurant on Las Vegas Boulevard, albeit in a location that still remains partially hidden from the Strip.
Red Palms Mediterranean Bistro intends to launch an ambitious 7,912-square-foot restaurant at the Kaptor Center collection of buildings behind Fatburger and across the boulevard from the Park MGM resort.
The bistro will take over the long vacant Alan Albert’s steakhouse, famed for its dark wood, booths, candlelight, and decor inspired by vintage Las Vegas.
Alan Albert’s was the sister concept to the Rosewood Grille, located next door and infamous for its advertising featuring a smiling, tuxedo-clad man holding up a giant lobster.
Sitting across from the still in operation Ginseng B.B.Q. Korean restaurant, Red Palms will add distinct dining areas and guests will also be able to buy cigars.
An estimated opening date has yet to be announced.
