Catch Wolfgang Puck’s Summer Tiki Menu while you can

Grilled Kurobuta pork skewers are a must-order dish.

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand is well-known as a reliable, multipurpose restaurant, whether you’re looking for a delicious dinner before a show, a late-night grub spot when the party’s winding down or a power-lunch dynamo when it’s time to impress. But just because it’s so familiar and steady doesn’t mean it can’t catch you off-guard.

Case in point, the Summer Tiki Menu. What? Yes, that’s a thing. Available through mid-August when menu revamps will bring new fall dishes to the table, it offers specialty tropical cocktails like the Painkiller (Pusser’s Navy rum, créme de banana, coconut créme orange, pineapple and nutmeg) and Puck’s Punch (Atlantico Platino and Myer’s Dark rums, spiced grapefruit, guava, pimento dram and lemon) to get you in an island mood before taking your pick from several refreshing dishes. Start with shrimp and scallop ceviche with aji amarillo and coconut “tiger’s milk,” and share a plate of the grilled Kurobuta pork skewers with rum-glazed pineapple and Maui onion. Entrées are aromatic steamed, market-fresh fish of the day, in a lobster curry broth with lemongrass and basil, or a Korean kalbi-style skirt steak with kimchi fried rice and pickled daikon.

Be sure to save room for the piña colada tres leches, a dessert laced with toasted coconut, brown sugar and pineapple that will transport you away with every bite. Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand, 702-891-3000; Monday & Wednesday-Friday 11:30 a.m.-6 a.m., Tuesday 11:30 a.m.-2:30 a.m., Saturday & Sunday 11 a.m.-6 a.m.
