The $450 million transformation of the Monte Carlo into Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas will include a French-inspired, vegetable-forward menu from chef Bryce Shuman at Primrose. But like any major resort, Park MGM knows it also needs to invest in a marquee steakhouse to appeal to lovers of quality red meat.
Yet to be named, or announced by the property, a new and impressively sized 10,035-square-foot steakhouse will solve that problem and is confirmed to be on the way. By comparison, at the Venetian, Carnevino fills 13,287 square feet and Cut by Wolfgang Puck covers 11,060 square feet. The Monte Carlo’s own Brand Steakhouse currently fills an approximate 5,000-square-foot area on the north side of the casino floor. Brand will shutter on Thursday, May 11, to make way for the massive improvements.
With the hefty size comes a pricey estimated construction budget. For the build alone, MGM Resorts has allocated $5,213,094 for a space that can host a maximum occupancy of 403. The concept is being created in-house, leaving open the option for an outside celebrity name to swoop in and partner with the new restaurant.
An exact on-site location for the new venture has yet to be revealed. Early paperwork does refer to a "living room" addition to the main dining room, wood panels and upholstered wall coverings are destined for the interiors.
