It might not be Michelin-star worthy cuisine, but the food court at the Venetian is making a concerted effort to provide a host of newly upgraded, quick and easy dining options for casino visitors. Now only one original vendor remains in this airy dining section off the casino floor, as Tacos & 'Ritas expands from the MGM Grand to fill a forthcoming 1,200 square feet of space currently boarded over with plywood.
The fast Mexican concept comes from ubiquitous Vegas casual food operators Fifth Avenue Restaurant Group, who also created the forthcoming San Gennaro Burger joint headed next door.
A few steps away, newcomers Chow Baby BBQ and Cafe Pan are very close to opening after replacing a pair of tired merchants. The lone original inhabitant is the 24-hour Pizzeria de Enzo, still not scheduled for a makeover, although the Fifth Avenue Restaurant Group's very own Bonanno's New York Pizzeria already operates four locations on the Strip.
