    I noticed that under the new MGM Web Template, the menus for all of the restaurants have me switched from pdf to html. This in and of it's self isn't an issue, but the menus no longer list any prices. I always try to plan the meals for my trips and this is certainly a hindrance for that reason. Just wanted to see if anyone else noticed that issue.:thumbsdown:

    Yes! It's helpful to check pricing, especially when going with a picky group. The design is very much a Groupon/Pinterest style, heavy on pics, but I find some of the nav to be off.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with MGM's "surge" pricing that is now in effect? I have read articles where bar items are more expensive at busy times and on weekends, and I would assume that MGM may be doing this with restaurants as well. They may have different menu prices at surge times, thus not wanting to put a set price on the website.

    I doubt it relates to the supposed "surge" pricing; having multiple versions of printed menus for each meal would be a logistical nightmare. And unlike bars, where you're charged for the drink at the time you order it, meals can last several hours, and I can't imagine an upscale restaurant being like, "Well, you ordered your appetizer during an off-peak period, but we switched to peak at the time you ordered your entree...". What's more annoying is that, besides how freaking ugly it is, many of the restaurants don't even have complete menus anymore. The entirety of the Carbone menu, for example, reads " All steaks & chops grilled on charcoal. Menu subject to change." right now.
