“We’re extremely excited about this latest venture, as it proves how Foxwoods is consistently leading the charge in evolving the resort experience by putting guests first and meeting their ever-changing wants and needs,” said Felix Rappaport, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. “In today’s market, consumers are looking beyond the traditional ‘dinner and a show’ model, and we’re upping the ante to give them a fully comprehensive experience that includes creative food menus, inventive cocktails, pop culture and live music – or ‘eatertainment’ as we like to call it – all in one place.”

The four unique restaurants are set for aggressive development this summer as the resort anticipates a fall launch for each opening. The new hot spots include:

  • Guy Fieri’s Kitchen + Bar at Foxwoods:

The 8,200 square foot, 190-seat restaurant boasts an open kitchen and bar design, where guests can now experience that lively Fieri taste so many have come to know and love right in Eastern Connecticut.  Fieri already has a “Kitchen & Bar” at the Linq in Las Vegas.  To get a sneak peak at the possibilities for Foxwoods click here.

    guests will enjoy a classic American venue serving up southern-style Texas roadhouse-style BBQ, burgers and local brews.

  • Sugar Factory American Brasserie: This celebrity gathering spot treats guests to a one-of-a-kind dining experience, serving decadent and tasty fare to satisfy sweet and savory cravings. The retail section offers a selection of the company’s signature treats and merchandise, including candy bins and the world-famous Couture Pops.

Due to extreme competition in New England in next few years from Massachusetts and possible New York and even northern New Jersey Casinos, Foxwoods continues to improve on their resort for the best overall experience, entices daytrippers to turn single visits into “stay-cations.”
