The evolution of the Monte Carlo into Park MGM is bringing some legitimately game-changing dining concepts to the Las Vegas Strip, and another was announced today.

Food truck culture pioneer and LA restaurateur Roy Choi, who operates Kogi BBQ, Chego, A-Frame, Commissary, Pot and Locol, will continue his established partnership with the Sydell Group to bring a Koreatown-inspired restaurant concept to Park MGM this year.

"I cannot wait to share what we have in store for Las Vegas," Choi said in a statement. "This restaurant will be full of soul and culture that is influenced by the energy of Koreatown in Los Angeles, my hometown.”

The restaurant will feature “immersive spaces that feel comfortable and familiar, while creating an eclectic environment for people to open their perceptions to the new and extraordinary.”

The Sydell Group, which partnered with MGM Resorts International to create Park MGM and its NoMad Hotel, teamed with Choi for projects at the Line hotel in Koreatown, in central LA. “It’s very exciting to get that dream team back together to create an unforgettable experience at Park MGM,” said MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage Ari Kastrati in the statement.

Park MGM—which will become the Monte Carlo's new name this spring—has already opened two new restaurants, Primrose and Bavette’s, and has previously announced the impending arrival of the NoMad Restaurant and Eataly Las Vegas at the changing resort. The project is expected to be finished by late 2018.
