Tilman Fertitta is at it again (does the man ever sleep?). This time, instead of acquiring a fictional movie character-themed restaurant, it's the Eva Longoria-themed restaurant, Beso Las Vegas. To save Beso from closing, Landry's has stepped in to buy the Latin-influenced steakhouse out of bankruptcy.
But fellow Texan Longoria isn't going too far. Fertitta told Vegas Inc. that "Longoria would continue to hold a substantial equity stake in the business, would visit Beso when she is in Las Vegas and maintain her involvement in its direction and menu." Fertitta also owns the Golden Nugget casino and hotel in Las Vegas.
