The mystery of how to squeeze in a new tenant at the Forum Food Court has been solved, as East Coast favorites Phillips Seafood officially leaves the resort.
The Oceanside, Maryland-based company served lobster rolls, crab, shrimp, and fish and chips, bringing experience operating in gaming environments like Atlantic City, Maryland Live! and the Foxwoods Casino. It opened between fellow fast casual-options Tiger Wok & Ramen and Smashburger when the upgraded food court launched in late 2014. Original tenant Cincinnati's Graeter's ice cream also failed to catch on, eventually closing after a year.
The 364-square-foot Phillips Seafood space will be filled by another East Coast import, The Halal Guys, expanding from its first Las Vegas base in Chinatown. Late opening hours are already promised to serve crowds leaving Omnia Nightclub with platters and sandwiches of chicken, beef gyro, or falafel and its famous white and red sauces.
The Halal Guys are pushing for a November arrival, joining DiFara Pizza, Earl of Sandwich, Romaine Empire, and La Gloria.
