WASHINGTON — No buffet, but there will be plenty to eat at the MGM National Harbor Casino and Resort.
MGM National Harbor has released a list of eateries that will feed the resort’s guests and gamblers when it opens later this year, and there’s not a red-eye casino buffet among them.
MGM National Harbor will have what it calls the National Market, a huge food hall with at least 10 food stalls.
Scheduled to be part of the National Market:
A taco stand called Amo Los Tacos.
A Vietnamese food stall called Bahn Mi Vietnamese Kitchen.
A Japanese counter called Bento.
A deli called District Deli.
A fried chicken and doughnut stand called Honey’s Fried Chicken and Donuts.
A 50s-style ice cream shop called S’Cream.
A crab shack and a hamburger joint will also be part of National Market, though plans have not yet been finalized, MGM said.
The casino also announced three additional restaurants. Guests will be able to feast at Ginger, a Pan Asian restaurant; TAP Sports Bar and Bellagio Patisserie.
MGM previously announced several other restaurants: Fish, from celebrity D.C. chef Jose Andres; Marcus Brasserie from New York chef Marcus Samuelsson; and Voltaggio Steak from Bryan and Michael Voltaggio of “Top Chef” fame.
The $1.3 billion MGM National Harbor Casino and Resort is scheduled to open late this year.
