New York-New York - The Real Deal :
Buyer beware - all MGM Resorts properties charge the highest resort fees (nearly $40/night) plus a $10 per day fee to self-park your car. VegasTripping suggests you find alternate accommodations.
New York-New York, the casino so nice they redesigned it twice. The latest version of NYNY is mostly similar to the previous - stuffy clogged restaurant lined cobblestone NYC-ish "streets" - with the main difference being a completely redone casino. What previously was Central Park, is now a center bar with swooshing neon whoojamahoozits floating overhead. Oh and a stripper dancing on a bar. Oh and a bar where dueling piano players taunt audience members to tip them. No class.
Much like the city which bears its name, NYNY is dense mish-mash of mega-themed insanity. The hustle bustle is palpable, but might not be what the doctor ordered if you're looking to have a somewhat relaxing vacation. Fun as fuck tho.

Restaurants at New York-New York
Just like in The Big Apple, you can find a variety of eateries in New York, New York and be served a steaming pile of rudeness from various Maitre D's and Hostesses.
Got a hankerin' for a Nathan's Dog? You're in luck. If Chinese is your bag, you can get Paris Hilton's favorite at Chin Chin (we suggest the paper wrapped chicken and General Tso). Italian, American and good old basics are there for the picking as well. Plus the guys who sling pastrami sammitches in the deli are a bunch of snarky knuckleheads just like you'd find in Brooklyn. Gallagher's steakhouse has dry aged steaks, live lobsters, veggie options and great service (even if the wait takes forever).
The good folks at New York, New York ordered a Irish Pub - Nine Fine Irishmen - built in Ireland and shipped over, and had it installed inside the resort. Guinness on tap, obviously.
Gonzalez Y Gonzales has great cadillac margaritas, tasty Mexican food and excellent service.
