Eva Langoria Parker of “Desperate Housewifes” fame and star chef Todd English are teaming up on a Latin-themed steakhouse planned for the new CityCenter in Las Vegas.
The restaurant will be a spinoff from Beso in Hollywood and is planned to open later this year when the CityCenter opens. Jonas Lawrence, formerly of Rokbar in Miami, is the managing partner for the celebrity venture.
English, whose Boston-based Olives restaurant chain includes an eatery at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, will feature his Latin take on flatbreads, along with yummy tacos and chili-rubbed steak. He also is planning a British pub at CityCenter.
Langoria Parker will contribute her guacamole recipe and tortilla soup to the menu.
Though not officially confirmed, there is talk that Victoria Beckham, wife of British soccer star David Beckham, will also be a partner in the venture.
