Bandito Latin Kitchen & Cantina, the Mexican restaurant from Kent Harman, closes on June 9 after two years in business at the Hughes Center along Restaurant Row.
“After two years of serving guests in Las Vegas, we have made the difficult decision to close Bandito Latin Kitchen & Cantina,” Harman, the owner and operator says in a press statement. “Bandito was a project of passion of ours and we are incredibly proud of what we achieved in that time. Unfortunately, we opened what we consider a great neighborhood restaurant without the neighborhood, but will continue looking for a great location to hopefully serve our guests again in the future. We’d like to sincerely thank everyone who supported us during this journey and hope to see you all again soon. Our last day of service will be June 9.”
Bandito opened in June 2017 in a new 4,000-square-foot space in the Hughes Center. Natural light fills the restaurant through its 30-foot tall glass windows, while diners could sit around a huge bar with butcher-block counters, hand-laid tile, and a 30-foot steel shelving structure. Local artist Brett Rosepiler created two huge murals of “Bandito” and “Rosie” in the main dining room.
