On a recent business trip to Las Vegas, we decided to try Dos Caminos, a new restaurant located in the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino. The one in Las Vegas is fourth in a group started
in Manhattan and offers unique Mexican recipes by Corporate
Executive Chef Scott Linquist, the co-author of the Dos Caminos
cookbook, Mod Mex.
This place is loud to the ears and the eyes! Pulsating music was provided by a DJ and a few musicians playing on a stage in the bar. The walls are covered in a skull motif, back lit to make them appear to float. Candles are everywhere.
We started with an appetizer of very rich, Mexican three cheese fondue and chips. For dinner, I tried the Dos
Enchiladas along with a side of spicy Mexican Red Rice. I normally
don’t order enchiladas from restaurants at home since all I can usually taste
is the corn tortilla. I was impressed by the mild corn flavor and
the contrast of nutty tasting, mole poblano and milder tomatillo verde
sauces. It was fun mixing the two to get even more interesting flavors. I would definitely order these again! The food was excellent, service was quick and the staff knowledgeable and helpful.
If you like Mexican food with a contemporary flair, and an energetic atmosphere then Dos Caminos – Las Vegas is a great place to dine.
