Openings and closings: Casinos change their dining lineup

Casinos constantly shuffle their gaming and entertainment options to keep things fresh and new.

Food and dining is no exception.

The M Resort says goodbye to two eateries and plans to welcome two more, while the Forum Shops shuttered one of its dining standbys.

Elsewhere in the valley, golfers in Henderson have a new place to get gear, while another gym has popped up to help people get fit.

    • Golf Galaxy

      Golf Galaxy

      Golf Galaxy opened Nov. 1 at 561 N. Stephanie St., Henderson.

      The store sells just about everything a golfer might need, including clubs, balls, apparel and shoes. Beginners can book a lesson with one of the store’s professionals to learn the game.

      Golf Galaxy is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

    • TruFusion Yoga

      TruFusion Yoga opened in mid-October at 8575 S. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas.

      The 9,600-square-foot gym offers 22 classes, including yoga and kettlebell workouts. The studio plans to open a juice bar soon.

      Classes begin 5:45 a.m. on weekdays and 7:30 a.m. on weekends. Membership costs $49.99 a month, with discounts available for college students and members of Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig.

    • Fat Tuesday

      Fat Tuesday recently opened its eighth Las Vegas location, at the Venetian near Tao.

      The frozen beverage chain sells New Orleans-style alcoholic daiquiris, such as the Rum Runner and 190 Octane, often in oversize souvenir cups.

      Fat Tuesday also has locations at Caesars Palace, Casino Royale, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Planet Hollywood, the Stratosphere and the Quad.

    • PJ Clarke’s

      P.J. Clarke’s New York Chophouse closed last month at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.

      The restaurant opened in 2011 and was part of the New York-based steak and seafood chain.

      There is no word yet on what will take over the space. It's rumored that a Border Grill might move in, but restaurant officials wouldn't confirm that.

    • Marinellis Italian Restaurant

      Marinelli’s Italian Restaurant

      Marinelli’s at the M closed earlier this month to make room for a new restaurant that will be revealed on the Food Network's “Restaurant Express.”

      The new eatery is scheduled to open later this year.

      A smaller Marinelli's Pasta Bar will open in a different spot in the resort.

    • Anthony's Steak Oyster M Resort

      Anthony’s Oyster Bar

      Anthony’s Oyster Bar closed to make room for Marinelli’s Pasta Bar, which is scheduled to open Thursday.

      Anthony’s Steakhouse, however, remains open and will incorporate items from the oyster bar’s menu into its own.

      The new Marinelli's will offer a 35-seat pasta bar and small-plate Italian dishes made from scratch.

      It will be open 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
