Western Las Vegas-dwelling fans of Roy’s Restaurant will have to drive across town to get their Hawaiian fusion fixes.
The restaurant at 8701 W. Charleston Blvd. permanently closed its doors on July 10.
The 7,185-square-foot building is for sale, represented by Cushman & Wakefield commercial real estate.
“The decision to close that particular restaurant was based on business circumstances,” said Elizabeth Watts, media and community relations director of Bloomin’ Brands Inc.
Watts said the 620 E. Flamingo Road location will remain open.
Roy’s is owned by Bloomin’ Brands Inc. restaurant group, which also owns Carrabba’s Italian Grill and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, in the same strip mall as the shuttered site. Those restaurants remain open.
Bloomin’ Brands Inc. also owns Outback Steakhouse and Bonefish Grill. There are seven Outback locations in Las Vegas, and one of each of the other restaurants in Bloomin’ Brands’ portfolio.
Roy’s is named after Chef Roy Yamaguchi, who founded the chain in 1988 in Honolulu. The menu combines European techniques and Asian cuisine to create seafood and meat dishes.
