Resorts World New York Announces Dining Options for New Facility

Resorts World Casino New York today revealed its full list of dining options, including two signature restaurants, an international buffet and a food court with numerous dining options, officials from Resorts World Casino New York announced today.

The two signature restaurants – Genting Palace, which will serve authentic fine-dining Cantonese cuisine by veteran Hong Kong chefs, and RW Prime, which will feature prime steaks, fresh seafood and other fine gourmet offerings - will both have 200-person seating capacities with private dining rooms available for large parties.

“We want to give our customers a full-fledged experience,” said Mike Speller, President of Resorts World Casino New York. “Included in that experience will be state-of-the-art gaming, exciting entertainment and a wide variety of dining options that will appeal to all tastes.”

In addition to the signature restaurants, Resorts World Casino New York will also offer a unique international buffet that, with the ability to seat 450 guests, is expected to be the primary dining outlet of choice during the facility’s peak hours.

Resorts World Casino New York food court will feature local favorites, as well as national brands, including:

  • Stage Deli;
  • Wolfgang Puck Express;
  • Queens Burgers;
  • Good Friends Noodle House;
  • Cups n’ Cones (Proudly serving Starbucks); and
  • Fiesta (Latin & Mexican Cuisine)

The facility will also offer two ‘grab-and-go’ food stops--Midtown Express and Uptown Express-- where customers can purchase quick food items.

Resorts World Casino New York recently announced a condensed opening schedule that will allow the new casino at Aqueduct Raceway to open its doors with far more components in place months earlier than expected. Under the schedule, 2,500 Video Lottery Terminals will be operational – rather than the 1,600 originally slated – when the casino opens in the late summer.

Once fully operational, Resorts World Casino New York is expected to permanently employ more than 900 workers in the entertainment, hospitality, security and food-service fields, and provide $300 million in annual revenue for the state.
