Eva Longoria to Expand Beso Empire

Desperate Housewives star and budding restaurateur Eva Longria has announced her plan to open a second Beso restaurant. This time her sights are set on Las Vegas.

The actress (who partnered with chef Todd English to open the VIP hot spot, Beso, in Los Angeles last March) has been spotted spending quality time at Caesar's Palace. The Vegas branch of Beso would be more of a loungey nightclub with small bites from English's Mexican-fusion menu.

I have yet to dine at Beso, but I find the Vegas expansion interesting. Could more Besos be on the horizon? Also, I enjoy seeing a celebrity's take on the restaurant industry.
What do you think of celebrity-owned restaurants?

I don't care. I wouldn't go to a restaurant just because some celeb owns it.

see this is when resauranteurs get into trouble. the place hasn't been open for a year yet and she's talking about another one. that's just not necessarily the smartest thing to do. restaurants are fads - and i think that she could walk in to a land mine there - by opening something new - in vegas no less, for there to be so much competition that she'll lose money. oh well - it's her money and todd's name - so they will both take the fall if there's not success right?

I'm more attracted by the restaurants of celebrity chefs. :)

i agree with you guys! i'm not against celebs owning restaurants- i'm against them owning ones that are so hyped up and then they don't have good food! i'm trying to think of a decent one and i can't off the top of my head...

I've even heard plenty of not-rave reviews about Tribeca (DeNiro, right?). As well as expected poor reviews of Justin Timberlake's place. Ha! I'd almost managed to forget Fashion Cafe! And what about Planet Hollywood?

Agreed Jude C. Cases in point: Fashion Café in the '90s, Britney's Nyla, and, most recently, Madre's (Jennifer Lopez's resto). I think a celebrity's yet to create a restaurant that has garnered the respect of the food press.

Judging from most reviews I've read of celebrity restaurants, they tend to range from mediocre to horrible. I haven't heard much about the food at Beso, though.
