    I know it's kind of a broad topic, but let me explain. My wife and are currently in Vegas, staying at encore. On Monday, we walked the strip, and stopped in every casino on the belliago, Monte Carlo side. We ended up giving MGM casinos a lot of play, not by design, but it just worked out that way. The majority of the action was at Monte Carlo and NYNY, probably 5-6 hours of blackjack and blackjack switch at about a 125 dollar per hand average. On Tuesday, my wife realizes she has a slot ticket from NYNY that she forgot to cash, so we head back down that way, and end ip talking to one of the MLife reps. He tells us he can give us at least 200 in dining credits at any MGM restaurant based on our play the previous day. He says that we would have to use the credits that day(Tuesday), but we can't- already have dinner and show plans at Venetian. He tells us to come back on Wednesday and we can get the same offer.
    So, my questions are 1) does it sound legit? Am I going to go back down there and be told I can't get that offer now? And 2) what restaurants would you recommend?

    For $200 you can't really do two people at the 'best' MGM restaurants. But you could get a great meal at Craftsteak for right around that price, if steak is your thing. It's pretty hard to go wrong there.

    Don't mind paying more

    Thanks Mike, I don't mind paying more than the $200 comp. also, I agree with you on craft steak- we've been too the one at Foxwoods several times, so we are looking for something we can't go to at home.

    Joel Robuchon will be the best. It would probably cost another couple of hundred for the meal though. They would also give you limo service to the restaurant with reservation.

    Otherwise, Nobhill has excellent food. Would cost about the $200 total for 2 depending on drinks of course.

    When he said you can use it at any MGM restaurant it is probably good for any restaurant among all the MGM properties. Especially since this was an mlife rep at nyny. From your title and question it sounds like you're asking for just MGM Grand restaurants which is why you'll get limited answers. You can eat at Bellagio, Aria, mirage, etc.

    As far as it being legitimate it sounds fine. Usually they are good for entire trips, not just one day but that is probably just because you're not staying there. It may sound a little generous given your play but its not at all since you're not staying there and aren't using any other comps but still giving them play. Just enjoy it, don't worry, and look at restaurants at any MGM property. Maybe first decide if there's a particular property you want to visit anyway and choose a restaurant there.

    At that price point, I'd go with Nobhill. I'm not a fan of Craftsteak.

    If you're willing to spend more, you can't go wrong with Joel Robuchon. If that's not the best, it's certainly up there.
