Two Bald Brothers Restaurant Closes Downtown

Two Bald Brothers, a Mediterranean restaurant, has closed downtown.

The restaurant opened in June 2017.

Two Bald Brothers, we hardly knew your shawarma.

The modest restaurant took up the former Zydeco Po-Boys space.

The “two bald brothers” were Roei Klein and Yitzhak Maydan.

They were, in fact, bald.

They weren’t brothers, however, and apparently had a falling out shortly after the restaurant opened. It’s believed Maydan departed the business just a few weeks into its operation.

Two Bald Brothers was Maydan’s fifth restaurant and Klein’s first.

You know it’s bad when you’re open from 00 a.m. to 00 p.m.

Word has it a well-known Las Vegas hospitality pro already has his eye on the Two Bald Brothers space, although the contract hasn’t been signed yet. Rumors are the next offering in the space could be Mexican.

The restaurant sits in a “restaurant row” on Carson Street, about a block off Fremont.

Vegenation is next door, with the new 7th & Carson next to that.

Here’s a fun fact: The former owner of Zydeco Po-Boys, Brandon Trahan, now cooks for Vegenation.

Downtown’s restaurant scene is eclectic and, to put it mildly, fluid. We look forward to tasting what’s next.
