Where to eat at Foxwoods?

I am heading to a concert at Foxwoods next month and staying at the MGM Grand hotel. I know that there are lots of restaurants down there and am wondering where we should go for a nice dinner before, or after, the show. Thanks

  1. Both Italian places are great : Alta Strada is at MGM and has a fabulous brunch on the weekends. Al Dente is in the Grand Pequot. Try one of their specials. If you like beef, David Burke Prime has never dissapointed. Craftsteak, while more expensive is also good, but not worth it, IMHO.

      Thanks. Is one Italian place better than the other? Anyone else care to weigh in with their opinion?

        I had brunch at David Burkes a few weeks ago. It was very good.

          Six of one, half dozen of the other. All are great - Al Dente a bit more old School Italian, but you will not be dissapointed in either - or Burke's, for that matter.

    2. DB Prime is the best restaurant at Foxwoods/MGM, in my opinion - and I have been to most of them. Cedars and Shrine are close behind.
