MGM Grand’s food hideaway Crush delivers soulful new dishes

Crush’s Surf and Turf, filet of beef and lobster tail with chimichurri vinaigrette.

It has one of the most familiar feelings of any restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip, so much so that a meal at Crush typically feels like a warm, relaxing dinner party at the home of your most stylish best friends.

But just because it feels like home doesn’t mean there isn’t something new happening at this delicious hideaway at MGM Grand. It’s time to go back—bring your besties if you like—to try the latest culinary creations from chef William DeMarco, including the Tuna 2 Ways (tartare with ponzu and Cajun-seared tuna with bacon marmalade) and the Surf and Turf (filet of beef and lobster tail with chimichurri vinaigrette).

A few classic sides have been added for you to Crush on, too, including potatoes au gratin and lobster mashed spuds. But our fave new bite is the Filet Mignon Tartare, with the lean beef bringing alternative flavors and textures to the raw standard, dressed with Pommery mustard and capers and served on a toasty crostini. This is affectionate food, an ideal fit in this charming restaurant. Crush at MGM Grand, 702-891-3222; Sunday-Thursday 5:30-10:30 p.m., Friday-Saturday 5-11:30 p.m.
