This autumn, Los Angeles-based chef Roy Choi will bring Korea to Las Vegas with a new dining venue. The soon-to-be-named restaurant, designed to  evoke L.A.’s Koreatown district with "immersive spaces" in an "eclectic environment," will be part of the Park MGM, a new hotel in the former Monte Carlo Resort. 

“Roy Choi and Sydell Group transformed Koreatown with new experiences that area had never before seen,” MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage Ari Kastrati said in a statement. “It’s very exciting to get that dream team back together to create [the new restaurant] at Park MGM.”
A pioneer of the food truck movement, Choi's California restaurants include Kogi BBQ, Chego!, A-Frame, Commissary, POT and LocoL.
“We are building this place to celebrate the fans and families that have supported us, and to welcome new friends around the world to the culture, personalities, and amazing food experiences born on the streets of L.A,” Choi said.

MGM Resorts International partnered with New York-based Sydell Group to turn the Monte Carlo into Park MGM and NoMad Hotel. With the $550 million transformation taking place throughout 2018, Park MGM will bring new culinary talent to Las Vegas, including Chicago’s Brendan Sodikoff who recently debuted Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar in November, and Italian marketplace Eataly.
