Essential Information

Address Foxwoods
Mashantucket 06338

Foxwoods’ showpiece is still one of the standouts of Connecticut’s dining firmament. Way up on the 24th floor of the Grand Pequot Tower, it’s at a blissful remove from the sensory overload of the casino. The fare by chef Scott Mickelson more than lives up to the luxe setting, with dishes like butter-poached lobster and Imperial Wagyu Eye of the Ribeye with truffled foie gras mousse. The cool thing is that with Mickelson’s new menu, you no longer have to win big to dine here: There are several lower-priced entrĂ©es in the mix—and a slew of delectable small plates in six categories (Beef, Noodles, Ahi, Columbia River King Salmon, Duck and Crab), three for $35. Still, one of the best things on the menu is the jazz stylings of cool cat Jack Madry on the baby grand. And that’s no lie.
