Hecho en Vegas, MGM Grand's replacement for the shuttered Diego, has pulled down the plywood ahead of its official Dec. 28 debut and revealed a vibrant, smart, wide open concept that is already drawing tourist interest.

Arizona restaurateurs the Flores family, who own El Charro Cafés and Sir Veza's Taco Garage are behind the new menu at the 10,084-square-foot space. With an already existing kitchen, the publicly declared budget of $690,788 was allowed to create an airy environment that pushes out into The District section of the resort, also home to Michael Mina's Pub 1842 and Emeril's New Orleans Fish House.

A long, rectangular entryway rug points focus to a large mural in the middle of the room. On the neighboring wall, a geometric art creation reaches to the ceiling.

Red vinyl chairs are placed up front and black and lime toned seating is in the middle and surrounding the bar.

Squared arches break up the space without stealing away square footage or lines of sight.
