At Skylofts at MGM Grand, you don’t have to leave your loft to experience some of the finest dining in Las Vegas. The comprehensive, customizable in-room dining menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert 24 hours a day. You’ll find plenty of choices for kids and even party platters for guests. You also have the option of ordering in from five restaurants inside the MGM Grand.
Off the in-room dining menu, for breakfast we often order the signature Skylofts dish with two poached eggs and roasted lobster on toasted brioche with lobster hollandaise and breakfast potatoes. For a light lunch you can choose from a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches, while dinner brings heartier fare. A couple of favorites include the eight-ounce prime beef tenderloin and the organic king salmon.
Picky palates should go for the customizable salads, sandwiches, entrées and desserts. You’ll feel like you’re at a salad bar, with six types of lettuce, six types of cheeses and more than a dozen fruit and veggie add-ons, not to mention meat, seafood, crunchy toppers and delicious dressings. Go crazy with your sandwich. First choose a bread, which can be anything from a baguette to sourdough, and stack it high with all kinds of meat — from grilled free-range chicken breast to lemon-yogurt grilled tiger prawns — vegetables, cheeses and spreads, such as roasted tomato chipotle salsa and stone-ground mustard.
You can have dinner your own way at this Five-Star hotel, too: The build-your-own entrée option allows you to choose from a selection of surf and turf, then top it with your own sauce, vegetable and starch. Popular picks include the pan-roasted chicken breast with citrus confit and basil, lemon-scented Moroccan couscous and sautéed Blue Lake beans. If you’re hosting a party in your room, there’s an array of entertainment platters, such as crudités, pizza and finger sandwiches, on offer.
The children’s menu has kid-friendly favorites, including scrambled eggs and pancakes for breakfast, or chicken fingers, grilled cheese, a junior hamburger, mac and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs and pizza for lunch and dinner.
Room service can also be arranged from most of the restaurants in the MGM Grand’s Studio Walk. It can take a little longer for food to arrive, but it’s a great way to sample some of Las Vegas’ best restaurants from the comfort of your loft, including celebrity chef and Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak, excellent Italian from FiAmma, Cantonese from Pearl, Japanese from Shibuya and pan-Asian dishes from the Grand Wok. Though these restaurants will add a surcharge to deliver to your loft.
And no room service snack would be complete without a treat for your sweet tooth. There are two signature desserts, “The Sunset” — angel food cake, fresh seasonal berries, sautéed caramel peaches, mixed berry sorbet, finished with fresh whipped cream — and the flambé — lemon pound cake, banana rum flambé, Tahitian vanilla ice cream with gianduja chocolate. Though if you prefer the do-it-yourself dishes, make your own sugary creation with a mix of cakes, fruits, ice creams and toppings. You’ll get the full the fine dining experience without leaving your loft.
