MGM GRAND DETROIT OPENS ITALIAN DINING OUTLET AT BREEZE DINING COURT
MGM Grand Detroit’s Breeze Dining Court, which serves more than one million meals a year, will now feature Italian fare at its Red Sauce fast dining outlet. Previously serving Mexican cuisine, Red Sauce’s menu will highlight Italian-inspired soups, salads, wood-fired oven pizzas, sandwiches, specialties and desserts.
“Our guests were the impetus for us to transition Red Sauce into an Italian outlet. People just love their Italian food and this is a way to get it to them fresh and fast,” said MGM Grand Detroit’s Executive Chef Michael Urbin. “Our intent when creating the menu was to include authentic and beloved dishes that can be found in any Italian grandmothers kitchen.”
To begin, Red Sauce offers Italian Toscano or Minestrone Soup and three salads: Classic Caesar, Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato, and Antipasto Salads.
Next, Red Sauce chefs will have freshly made sliced and full homemade pizzas for dine-in and to-go purchase. Made in the outlet’s wood-fire oven, pies will be available in the cheese, meat lovers, supreme, and veggie varieties. The pizza chefs also will be making “Breeze Bread” which is served with pizza or ranch dipping sauce.
For a taste of Italy, guests are not lacking in options. The menu features two kinds of sandwiches: the baked meatball grinder with house-made meatballs, blended cheese and tomato sauce; and the Italian Sausage Sub made with fresh Italian sausage, peppers, onions and tomato sauce. Italian specialties, which come with fresh parmesan focaccia bread, include baked meat lasagna, chicken lasagna, and breaded chicken parmesan with pasta. Finally, the penne rigate pasta is served with a choice of meat, marinara or creamy alfredo sauce.
For a sweet ending, guests can choose from Italian dessert favorites: Tiramisu and Cannoli.
Menu items range from $4 to $25. For an additional cost, guests can order add-on items, such as a salad, pasta or meatball, or “Make it a Dinner” by adding any additional item or soup, and a fountain drink. Red Sauce is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m.
