Surf and turf lovers have one less place to satisfy their cravings now that McCormick & Schmick’s has closed its doors.
The restaurant, located on Flamingo Road in the Hughes Center, shut down last weekend and will be replaced by a Claim Jumper on Saturday.
Both McCormick & Schmick’s and Claim Jumper are owned by Landry’s Inc., a hospitality company that operates a number of other restaurant chains as well as the Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas.
According to Terry Turney, Claim Jumper's chief operating officer, the Claim Jumper moving into the location was located in Town Square, where it lost its lease at the upscale Las Vegas Boulevard shopping center.
“The Hughes location is a perfect fit for Claim Jumper, so we made the immediate decision to switch concepts,” Turney said.
