Confirmation of an Eater Vegas reveal on the future of the Monte Carlo uncovers MGM Resorts International’s dramatic plans for the Park MGM and Nomad Las Vegas, set to rise from the shell of the current resort late next year.
Among the revelations, a confirmed site of Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich’s Eataly, long destined for Las Vegas, announced during the company’s second quarter earnings report. The renderings show a dominating front entrance on the south side of the resort, beckoning guests from The Park and headed to the T-Mobile Arena.
Already 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,” the rest of the casino floor will include three new bars, Bavette’s steakhouse and the Primrose restaurant helmed by chef Bryce Shuman. Nomad Las Vegas will host its own dining attraction, NoMad, a contemporary American restaurant from chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara.
Also confirmed in the rendering, a future “pedestrian bridge” linking both sides of the Strip, and planting the eastern end close to Denny’s across Las Vegas Boulevard. Moves to block off the existing service road that cuts the Showcase Mall in two, slicing between Denny’s and the Coca-Cola Store, have been in the works for many months.
Still to come, news on the northern side of the resort and the replacements for Yusho and Andre's.
