Eva Longria’s expansion plans for her popular Hollywood restaurant, Beso, has hit a snag with the bankruptcy filing for the Las Vegas Beso nightclub and restaurant.
In 2009 Longoria and celebrity chef Todd English took Beso to Las Vegas and opened in the CityCenter after the success of the original restaurant which opened in California in 2008.
The Las Vegas operation, which Longoria is a one-third owner, appears to have $2.5 million in assets with $5.7 million in debt, much of it rent due to the landlord at CityCenter. The bankruptcy filing does not impact Longoria’s original restaurant in Hollywood.
In a statement to AP sent by Longoria she states, she is looking forward “to a more proactive, hands-on approach in the coming years with my Las Vegas businesses.” All indications are that the nightclub-restaurant will remain open while it reorganizes.
