Eva Longoria's female-focused steakhouse closes; Vegas eatery had bad health review in April

  • Print

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Eva Longoria's female-focused steakhouse closed over the weekend, less than two years after opening in a swanky shopping centre on the Las Vegas Strip.

Officials with parent company Landry's said SHe by Morton's shut down effective Sunday. The restaurant had opened in late 2012 with a theatrical nightclub on the upper floor, but the club portion closed in early 2013.

"The restaurant was looking into alternatives to repurpose the space to enhance its dining experience," said Scott Marshall, SHe's chief operating officer. Unable to agree with the landlord on an overhaul after the club closed, "we were left with no alternative other than to sell the space back."

The restaurant was located inside the Crystals shops at the Aria casino and featured a catwalk and smaller portion sizes for female customers. Mirrors on the back of the dessert menus were designed for patrons reapplying lipstick after their dinner.

The steakhouse ran into trouble last month when the Southern Nevada Health District temporarily closed the restaurant. Health inspectors gave the restaurant numerous demerits, mostly related to keeping food at proper temperatures and maintaining accurate thermometers.

The eatery quickly reopened with a grade "A'' from the health district.
