As we have been tracking for the last year or so, The Plaza has embarked on a gigantic renovation project, with the first phase of its hotel offerings opening to the public yesterday.

Awaiting guests in the rooms is a short letter from Michael Pergolini, Vice President of Hotel Operations.

Dear Valued Guest,

We are thrilled to have you as our first guests and proud to share our newly renovated hotel, casino and restaurant options with you. We hope that you will enjoy our unique entertainment and dining options, stylish new guest rooms and refreshingly remodeled casino floor.

While still in the midst of this undertaking, we ask for your patience as well as your valued feedback. If during your stay, you experience any challenges, please do not hesitate to contact us at Ext. 25753 and a team member will be more than happy to assist you with your needs.

At the end they've listed out all of the dining/drinking options that will make up the Plaza's roster of food and bev when all is said and done.

Caffelatte - currently open - coffee, tea, juices, pastries, desserts and gelato.

Subway - currently open - five dollah foot longs.

Hash House A GoGo - opening August 30

Island Sushi & Hawaiian Grill - opening Sept 1 - "serving fresh sushi and authentic Hawaiian food, as well as providing delicious food choices for in room dining"

GiGi's Cupcakes - opening late September - 30 varieties.

McDonalds - opening soon.

Oscar's Steakhouse - opening late October - "former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman opens his own steakhouse, speakeasy and Italian restaurant."

Radio City Pizza - opening mid-November - brick oven pizza and Italian cuisine.

Zaba's - opening mid-October - fresh Mexican grill.

Leroy's Sportsbook and Bar - under construction, no ETA.

Omaha Bar - open in the same place it always was.

Swingers Lounge - under construction - they're installing the putt putt course and the lighting system.

Little by little things are starting to take shape at the Plaza. Be prepared to find food elsewhere for the time being, unless all you eat is Subway or can stomach Hash House a GoGo more than once per trip.

Comments & Discussion:

A putt putt golf course you say? Hmmmm....
Also, what does the "speakeasy" side of the steakhouse entail? Sounds interesting.
I've only been in the Plaza twice, once was to play bingo (and we accidentally found a beef jerky store). The lobby was up on the same floor as the bingo room and the hallways were Willy Wonka funhouse narrow with uneven floors. The other time I was way to f'n drunk to remember what the hell the inside of the place looked like. I just remembered seeing the sad buffet and super sad food court that had pizza place and a Subway in it.

Brick oven pizza is one of those things I used to hear about and get excited. Now there are so many terrible "brick oven" pizza places I take more of a wait and see attitude.

Aside from the mundane Subway and McDonald's i can think of a few places to hit for the first time I wander into the Plaza: Hash House a Go Go, Island Sushi for the grill part, Oscar's Steakhouse (will Osacr show up from time to time), Zaba's and for deaert Gigi's Cupcakes. Looks like two trips to Freemont are in order.

Smart to have a Hawaiian food option to capture visits from Boyd's substantial Hawaiian business at the nearby Main Street Station and California hotels.

It should definitely give Aloha Specialties at the Cal some competition.

Really, Oscar's is the only signature place. I think it has potential and just hope they follow through with some good quality food. If they do it right, it has the hype and location to become the go to steakhouse downtown.

I'm planning on checking Oscar's out when I head to Vegas in February. To be honest, it will have to be one helluva steak for me to say it's the go-to steakhouse Downtown. The Triple George is definitely my pick for best steak place Downtown. The thing is that it is actually more of a locals place, as most folks staying on Fremont Street are probably hesitant to venture too far from casinos.

I'm gonna miss Firefly, I guess we'll have to travel to get the great grub they served.

I will go to Oscar's if I can get one of those giant martinis that Hizzoner likes to hold in his publicity photos.

Hugo's Cellar takes the cake downtown for me...If the walls could talk...

Oscar's might be worth a try but have to be something to drag us from Hugo's.
