Yusho Japanese Grill & Noodle House and Brand Steakhouse are on the way out, but one more replacement dining option has been finalized for the future $450 million switcheroo of the Monte Carlo resort into Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas .

Primrose will take over a substantial 12,155-square-foot space, just off the yet-to-be remodeled lobby. The indoor/outdoor space will add a second floor with a terrace, also accessible from a new upper level addition to the lobby. The NoMad Las Vegas will offer its own private check-in area to accommodate its 292 guestrooms and suites.

For construction alone, Primrose has allocated $2,133,931 in estimated costs and the remainder of the lobby footprint has also earmarked an additional $2,333,931 in rebuilding costs.

With room enough for a maximum of 495, currently planned for Primrose are a "grill" and garden bar, a foyer, a "drawing room," ground floor bar, main dining room, plus "bookcase" and wood-covered walls.

Already hiring, Primrose is also the name of an under construction ballroom and veranda next door at the Aria resort, inside the new convention center. Like the Park MGM project, the convention wing is pushing for a 2018 debut.

At the Monte Carlo, work continues on creating an impressive new pool section, an upgrade to the Subway in the food court and the impending changes when Brand Steakhouse closes on May 11 and Yusho departs on June 5. Andre's and The Pub both shuttered back in October.

Future dining includes "a contemporary American restaurant" from chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara, the team behind New York City’s Eleven Madison Park, the number one selection on this year’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.

Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich will also be creating their latest incarnation of Eataly, promised to be a "vibrant marketplace with cafes, to-go counters, and sit-down restaurants interspersed with high-quality products from sustainable Italian and local producers."

And last August, MGM Resorts chairman and CEO Jim Murren revealed the Monte Carlo’s sports book will make way for the Library, a three-level, restaurant and lounge inspired by the NoMad original in New York. The bookish design theme of Primrose will continue, with shelves stocked with an "eclectic range" of literature and a menu of "light fare and finger foods which are served alongside coffee, tea, wine, and cocktails."
