Earlier this week, Palace Station dismantled its hard-to-miss, exterior pylon sign and removed one of the last physical reminders of its former train-inspired theme. Looking to the future and its $76 million investment to completely revamp the property, the resort also debuted a new, Strip-style pool with dedicated bar, ahead of a series of major changes to upgrade its restaurant scene.
Recent paperwork confirms two new dining choices will join the already promised imports, all scheduled for a fall debut.
Work begins soon on creating a food court, missing from the casino floor since Subway closed a few steps from the sports book. Details of the future fast casual tenants have yet to be announced.
Also yet to be revealed, Tony’s Grab & Go, anticipated to be an off-shoot of chef Tony Gemignani’s existing pizzeria, Little Tony’s.
Gemignani operates Tony’s of North Beach and Slice House Pizza at California's Graton Resort & Casino, owned by Palace Station’s parent company Red Rock Resorts. Graton is home to another tenant moving to Las Vegas, the lunch-and-dinner restaurant Boathouse Asian Eatery, serving Japanese and East Asian dishes.
Boathouse will join the second full-service restaurant addition, BBD’s, a beer, burger, and dessert gastropub from Long Island, New York, created by chef Ralph Perrazzo.
Upgrades to the Feast Buffet and the creation of two more bars will join this first phase of changes, with more restaurants, a 27-story hotel tower, a boutique movie theater, and a bowling alley still part of the original, ambitious plan.
