Sights & Restaurants Around MGM Grand, Vegas

After our meal at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, we took a walk around MGM Grand to check out the place.  Here are some photos I took of the hotel and the interesting looking restaurants.  The whole place (the hotel and just about everywhere and everything else in Las Vegas!) is just filled with colours and I had a great time wandering around :o)

Hotel Lobby
The busy hotel lobby

Hotel Room Lobby
The hotel room lobby - lit panels of black & white shots of celebrities adorn the centre pillar

A small part of the large casino area

Lion Habitat
One of MGM Grand's highlight is the Lion Habitat area.  Yes, that's a staff  playing with a lion!

NOBHILL TAVERN - serving American Tavern fare 

Joël Robuchon
Joël Robuchon Restaurant - First and only 3 Star Michelin Guide Winner in Las Vegas.  French fare, degustation menu starts from USD395

Rouge - with chrome and Ferrari red furnishings.  This bar is sure "flaming red" hot.

Fiamma - a fine dining Italian restaurant

Shibuya - Best Japanese restaurant in Las Vegas for 6 years running

I just had to take another shot of Shibuya.  I was mesmerised by the large colourful screen that not only changes colour but projects a school of fish swimming around in an almost hynoptic pattern.

Emeril's - serving Creole/Cajun specialties in a casual style dining ambiance.

diego - dishing up traditional Mexican food

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon - French culinary workshop with counter service where dinner is prepared right in front of the patron   

By the poolside
We then went to the pool area and decided to relax a bit ... this was taken when I was laying down on the deck chair, looking upwards.

Palm Tree
Soon enough....this view was the last thing I saw before I fell asleep; taking a short nap :o)

C&C : In a way, it was crowded but those pics I took of the restaurants were during off peak hours.
