Empire City Casino, Yonkers, New York

Recently acquired by MGM Resorts International, Empire City Casino – Manhattan’s closest casino — welcomes a taste of Las Vegas to Yonkers. This is the perfect venue if you are a fan of fine food and all the latest casino games. Although in recent times, online casinos such as thaicasino have soared in popularity, land-based casinos are also still going strong. Some gamers even use the online casinos to hone their skills before then unleashing their newfound strategies at the casino table and then grabbing a tasty bite to eat afterward. Therefore, it’ll be no surprise to see the number of Manhattan residents jump onto online gambling sites like Casino-Korea.com to improve their skills before the grand opening. For those who are more interested in the food, the Pub’s re-imagined menu has been created by MGM Resorts International Executive Chef Anthony Amoroso. Fan favorites include Empire City’s Blacked Salmon, Rotisserie Chicken and Honey Siracha Chicken Wings. The food is complemented by an expanded beer and cocktail program curated by the company’s Corporate Mixologist Craig Schoettler. Nonno’s Trattoria features exquisite Italian cuisine.
